Post Limited Network access on Suse 9.3

I too am running Suse on a DSL router, but having a different problem. I have 3 Suse 9.3 system running on my home network. I have had the same type of problem even with Suse 9.2 and Ubuntu. The problem is, when I change my network environment my linux boxes have limited internet access. Gaim stops signing in to my MSN and yahoo accounts, hotmail, MSN, and other websites are not available.

My network environment used to be a DSL router to a Wireless router with 4 wired connections. Now I was able to get rid of the wireless router and use the DSL wireless capability so now it is the DSL router to just an unmanaged switch.

When I did that my IP addresses changed and the DNS information stayed the same but without access to a lot of web sites. My Windows XP boxes took the change without much of a headache. But my Linux boxes didn't like the change.

I did this once before and ended up reloading the linux OS from scratch. It works but I really don't want to reload 3 boxes with 9.3 again.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to LQ.

Please try not to hijack other peoples threads. I have spilt this post off into it's own thread.

Can you resolve addresses using dig at a bash prompt?
