Unhappy i can see my LAN but i can't surf the INternet, HELP


HI People!

I really need some help here , I have tried everything what i have found on the post all over the Internet and nothig seen to work.
I have a Dell Inspiron P4, 18 Ghz, Running SUSE Linux 8.2 i have a Wireless card , Dell Truemobile 1150,
i have a small home network ( 4 machines) with a Wireless router D-link DI614+,
i configured my wireless card , and everything is working fine
as far as the LAN goes, i setup my SAMBA server and i can surf my LAN without prblems,
however i can't have access to the Internet, none page will load..on the brpwser,
i tried different browser and nothing.

the ip from the DCHP is ok,,i even give the Linux Box a static IP( also tried with dinamic).

Any ideas?

Cool

besides the DNS, check your /etc/resolv.conf, check your firewall and/or proxy.

try doing a:
nslookup www.linuxmail.org

You can only surf your LAN with IP address. You must provide your computer also with proper gateway to access external resources.

Try ping'ing some external addresses. Addresses by david_ross are good.

If you get a reply from ip address 64.179.4.146, then you have proper network connection but not proper DNS configuration. If you don't get a reply, then you have flaws in your basic network configuration (IP, Subnet, gateway).

As much as I remember, you had to open "special settings" in YAST2 network configuration to alter DNS server list.

I will check back here in about 2 hour. ( i'll be at home by that) thanks.
Still open for any other ideas!

Cool

try the /etc/resolv.conf file,

Example
nameserver 10.9.32.2

this will point to yor DNS server

Regards

Do not change these conf files on SuSE 8.2. Use YaST2. YaST always checks if everything is OK after you change something. Edit manually only if YaST fails.

You can find the configuration in YaST2 -> Network Devices -> Network card

There you have in lower section configured network car. Open configuration. Edit . Host Name and Name server.

If you have a DSL connection (from your machine), you should still not change that configuration. ppp daemon changes /etc/resolv.vonf file itselt.
