Wireless Networking (Browsing) Problems

My Network =(Blitzz) BWA711 router, 2 WindowsXP boxes hard-wired to back of router, 1 MAC Laptop using "AIRPORT", 1 WindowsXP laptop using on-board wireless LAN, and one LINUX box w/ (Blitzz) BWU713 USB adapter. Problem only with LINUX box. BWU713 adapter has good signal, and works with BWA711. (I installed ndiswrapper 1.2 and the WinXP drivers) Browsers in LINUX are Mozilla FOXFIRE 1.04, Konqueror, EPIPHANY. They all will run, all open the same few web pages, but do not open other web pages. Question, is there a setting in the router I need to change? (I use PPPoE) Or is it a plug-in issue in LINUX browsers? I would think that if it would open some pages it would open them all. )I have a Netgear WG111 wireless adapter that acts the same way!)

Try using nslookup or dig on your linux box to see if it can resolve the IP addresses of the sites you cannot visit. If it fails, then you have a DNS issue, and probably need to modify your /etc/resolv.conf. If they do resolve, see if you can ping them. You can also try to browse to the via ip address (http://123.456.789.123 instead of, for example). Since some sites work, it is unlikely that this is a firewall problem, but you could try disabling the firewall to see if it helps (service iptables stop).

Thanks for your response. This is weird. I tend to think it might be a hardware issue. It is the same in all Linux distro's I've tried (Mandrake 10.2, Santa Fe Linux, SuSE Mini install, and Fedora Core 4). I get ndiswrapper 1.2 installed w/ no problems. Some websites load every time, like, and others. Google will load, will list search results, but poops out when you try to navigate to the page. I've never had this problem before using CAT5 connections, I haven't tried it hard wired this time...maybe it is time to try that. I've tried to change settings in the router to no avail. Any other ideas would be appreciated, I have to be stumped, it is a good puzzle. RpSr
