Question Konquerer can't see the internet

I have three machines, XP, 2000, and Linux all connected to the internet via a Netgear RP612 "Internet Safe Router Gateway". The two Windows machines, (one using IE 6.0 the other Firefox), connect to the internet without issues. The Linux box using Konqueror fails to connect the internet with an "Unknown Host" error. HTTP seems to running on port 80 and I am able use Konqueror to login into the admin function on the router. Additionally, netstat shows a static gateway through the router.

Any suggestions?

Have you established that your network is actually running on the Linux box?

What distro?

As root, enter the command ifconfig

and post the results here.

This is typed as I can't cut and paste between the machines. I tried ftp and telnet but received port errors when trying to connect. Makes me wonder if services are indeed running correctly. I verified the services file and everything appears correct.

eth0: Link encap: Ethernet HWaddr 00:69:08:BF:7FB
inet addr: BCast: Mask:
inet6 addr:fe00::260:8ff:febf:7fdb/64 Scope:Link

RX Bytes: 10709857 (10.2Mb) TX Bytes:3385406 (3.2Mb)

le0:Link encap:Local Loopback

collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:2366930 (2.2Mb) TX bytes:2366930 (2.2Mb)

Just FYI, two lines from my services file:

telnet 23/tcp # Telnet
telnet 23/udp # Telnet

thanks for your help

I think your system is infested with smilies. Maybe that's the problem.

A couple of things to try:
1. If you have another browser, does it work?
2. Do you have a firewall setup that might be blocking access?
3. Can you ping IP addresses, hostnames and/or website URLs?

I do not have another browser on the Linux box however my XP box runs both IE 6.2 and Firefox without issue. I have compared the browser settings between the two boxes and they appear identical.

From the Linux box I can ping the XP box, the netgear router and the DNS server by IP address. I am connected via cable modem and my ISP provides the DNS IP. So it seems HTTP traffic is not making it through the router for the Linux world (IE 6 and Firefox work from XP).

I have a Netgear "Internet Safe Gateway Router" model Rp614 V2. I have attempted to contact Netgear but received no response. When I configure the port on the router (Port 80/HTTP) trying to hit the web results in a request for the router's username/password.

Hi KMath,

RX Packets:39249 error:0 dropped:0 overrun:0 Frame:0
TX Packets:27080 error:0 dropped:0 overrun:0 carrier:0
This shows that your Linux box is on the network and running perfectly fine.
RX mean Received Packets over the network.
TX Transfered or Transported packets over the network.

I beleive when you install Linux, you opted to enable Firewall and your "etho" is not trusted... you go to security (if this is Red Hat Linux) and then "Check"/"Enable" the "etho" as trusted device. (I had the same issue and this was the solution)

Hope this helps,
