Ubuntu internet connection problem


Hi,
I am connecting to internet through cable connection, I am using also a router, I can connect to internet with Windows and Pardus(linux based OS), I start to use Ubuntu 5.10, and I can ping my internet providers address(192.168.1.1) but can't connect to any other page, what should I do for repairing the connection? Thanks.

Output of nslookup
;; reply from unexpected source: 195.175.37.14#53, expected 192.168.1.1#53
...
;; connection timed out, no servers could be reached

What could be the problem?

do the other OS's still work ok or are you only using ubuntu now?

sounds like your isp is having a problem with its dns, or more likely the settings are wrong on your dhcp server (a modem/firewall thing??)

I saw that you said you could only ping 192.168.1.1

Do you have a Linksys router by any chance?

I do, and that is the default IP for their routers. It seems to me that you're pinging the router. But I can't be sure.

I'm currently running windows, trying to find a way to get online with linux.

I had a problem connecting using the router as well. Look on your wireless router and find the make/model and look for the manual online.
Also, open your web browser on the computer to which the router is wired and enter 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. If this is a Linksys, as I assume it is, a login box will pop up. Leave the username field blank and enter "admin" as the password. You will be brought to the router's configuration "site", you might call it. On the first page will be fields in which to type your internet login information. There are several types of connection to choose from (call your ISP to find out which you are). choose the correct one and enter the username and password you use to log in. It should then work, along with any other computers receiving a signal from the router.
