Lose connectivity with Konqueror


I using Fedora 2 on an Intel Pentium IV system.

I have DSL with a router that allow multiple computerst to access the Internet.

When I use the Konqueror web browser after access a few web links my system consistently looses Internet connectivity. I can restore this connectivity by access my router and reconfiguring it. However, if I continue to use Konqueror I eventually lose connectivity again and the whole process start all over.

I do not have this problem using another web browser like Mozilla

Are there any known issues with Konqueror and Internet connectivity?

Not normally, I have this setup with Konq here no problems. Theres no bugs filed with this either. It could be something in your set up that Konq is affecting the Mozilla isn't.

Try starting Konq with the Konsole, Lots of stuff will come up where only interested in the errors and what happens around the time of disconnection.

Also even when Konq loses connection, is the actual connection down ( i.e. can you browse with Mozilla ) or is it just Konq unable to connect.

To answer your question, Konqueror causes me to lose all Internet connectivity, not just connectivity in Konqueror.

I tried launching Konqueror from a terminal , and I received no output while using the web browser, even after I lost connectivity.
The problem affects the entire network. Neither computer will be able to use the internet until I run the setup wizard for my router again. Then Internet connectivity is instantly restored and everything work fine as long as I don't use Konqueror any more.

What the DHCP settings? is the release being renewed ( whats the length of the lease ), or maybe konq is knocking out the DHCP in the router. ( Which is a strange thing to do. ) You could check the router settings.

I not sure how Fedora does networking, i.e. what the startup script is, but under Debian its /etc/init.d/networking Which can restarted. just by calling the script with the parameter restart. If this does work then it is probably DHCP.

For network settings you need to check the /etc folder for things named networking network etc. ( I've not used Fedora2 so I don't know exactly what the files called ). Also check your router, see how long its leasing DHCP, whether theres automatic reconnect etc.

When you connect to your router you'll probably get a message about a lease, check using the command dmesg | less or your /var/log/syslog.

I found a file named /etc/dhcpc/dhcpcd-eth0.info that I hope contains the needed information. Here are the contents:
IPADDR=192.168.0.3
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.0.0
BROADCAST=192.168.0.255
GATEWAY=192.168.0.1
HOSTNAME=dhcppc2
DOMAIN=verizon.net
DNS=192.168.0.1
DHCPSID=192.168.0.1
DHCPGIADDR=0.0.0.0
DHCPSIADDR=192.168.0.1
DHCPCHADDR=00:02:E3:15:64:F6
DHCPSHADDR=00:30:AB:03:87:C4
DHCPSNAME=res0hi6f
LEASETIME=4294967295
RENEWALTIME=2147483647
REBINDTIME=3758096377

I grepped the output from dmesg for the term lease and it did not return any results. I do not have a /var/log/syslog file on my system.

The lease seems file. I can't think of what could be causing this. The best thing is probably to report this problem too KDE bug tracking.
