Wierd routing problem in Mandrake 10


I've got a newly installed Mandrake 10 box that i'm trying to connect to the internet through a Draytek 2600x router.

I can access the internet but only at incredibly slow speeds. when i ping the same address (yahoo.de) i get a prompt response and everything seems fine. I've got SuSE 9 on my laptop and that works fine. I've tried both DHCP and manuel setups. The same thing.

when using "route" i get:

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
default my.router 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

is there anything wrong here.

with suse i get:

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
default my.router 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

so, witout the lo interface. like i said, I don't think it's dns because the router should take care of that as the dns entry is 192.168.1.1 (same with the gateway)

Any help would be well received.

is your nameserver(router) listed in /etc/resolv.conf?

I'm no there right noe but i did take a look at that a couple times in the process of trying to figure something out and everything seemed fine. I'll check tomorrow make sure a post the contents.

I wasn't quite sure what the search field was used for though, so I left it blank. (in the mandrake control center)

Also, to make it clear, names DO resolve. It just takes around 45s to a minute to do so.

Any other thoughts?

Thanks
Chris

I got working fine.

somehow the router wasn't taking care of the name resolution. I set the nameservers to those of t-online here in germany and all is good.

Thanks for the help, though.

Chris
