Unhappy internet connection on RH9 working sporadically

DSL Modem:
MSN Arescom 1000
I.P. =
Subnet Mask =

D-Link DI-614+ Airplus
I.P. =
Subnet Mask =

Wall -> DSL Modem -> Router -> WinXP
Router -> RH9

Here is the deal. The modem assigns the router an I.P. and then the I.P. assigns addresses to the WinXP box and Linux Box. The WinXP box runs just. Now here comes the problem. The linux box can access the internet but very sporadically. It will open a page, but then for the next 5 or so minutes it doesnít have internet connection and then it comes back on for another minute, so on and so forth. I am not running a wireless network. Everything is wired. I didnít mess with any config files on RH9. I just used the Control Center to set everything up. I donít know how to fix this internet problem with my linux machine. I hope someone can spot a problem with my ignorant description of my problem. I havenít messed with file sharing yet since I want to tackle one problem at a time unless file sharing and internet connectivity require the same solution.

I had the same problem,
the problem was dns on linux, for some reason the router stop pusshing dns resolution to linux,
but to fix this open you Nic config gui. look for the dns entry and type the dns entry of your isp.

Smile Thanks

Thanks for the solutions. They both worked perfectly. I had the DNS of the router in the file, but not for the modem. Once I added that the internet connection worked perfectly.
