fedora 7 internet connection


hey everybody. just installed fedora 7. problem of course, is internet connectivity. bear with me though, this is a weird one.

I have a d-link router which i purchased about a week ago. it has given me a few problems but i have sorted them now (i think). Now with Fedora 7, firefox wont connect to the internet, yum wont connect, but konqueror will. i havent checked every program. but all others that i have checked wont connect.

whats the score here?

thanks

ps. im a bit of a noob so please nothing too technical

Thumbs up

I just remembered one of the problems that i had with the router before. The router acts as a DNS server and appears to be crap. i changed the /etc/resolve.conf file to use opendns (www.opendns.com) server of 208.67.222.222. all is well now. why konqueror was able to use the routers DNS i dont know but this is a workaround that works for me.

cheers
