Angry Can logon to ISP but can't do anything else


My Internet connection works fine under windows. I can connect just fine under Linux. However, once I connect over Linux, I can't browse the Internet. All my programs still work. All Mozilla does is say "Connecting to site.." and sit there. My ISP says that the DNS servers should configure automatically, however they offer 2 servers in case the auto config doesn't work. I've tried it both ways (auto and I specify) and it's the same response. What do I do?

In /etc/resolv.conf you want to put your ISP's DNS servers. Only the IP address.

nameserver IPADDRESS_OF_PRIMARY
nameserver IPADDRESS_OF_SECONDARY

Problem Fixed. As to why it didn't work. I still have no clue. It was a new (subscribed same day) ISP. But it worked just fine under windows. Then this morning I was locked out. Then tonight it's perfect. Maybe they had to add me to their database or something. Well at least it's one less problem. Thanks for your help.

Yes, someone from the ISP must have posted a query and some great soul onLQ must have helped them out ... just kidding...
