internet configuration using fedora 2



I have just installed fedora 2 on my computer. However i am not being able to access the internet.

My internet connection is a high speed cable connection. The cable modem is connected to a 4-pin ethernet router and my desktop and laptop are connected to the router. During installation i had selected the option for automatic configuration through DHCP and not static IP. I have checked the network configuration in fedora (through System Tools->Network) and it detects the ethernet connection at eth0 and on the DNS tab shows a IP address, but when i start the browser, it cannot recognise the domain name of the web site (some DNS problem i guess and asks to check if the name was spelt ok). However, when i boot into windows XP, the internet connection runs fine. The same thing happened when i installed Fedora 3. However, previously, when i only had my desktop (it was connected directly to the cable modem), i could access the internet on fedora 2. Now, even on the desktop, i cannot access the internet.

Can anyone please let me know, what i need to do to?

Thanks and Regards,

Sipho Rooi

Man fedora 10 is out and you still on Fedora Core 2. This is way too outdated. You do not get security updates and fedora has got small life cycle. The support for Fedora 9 will be taken back after release of F11. Suggest you move to a newer distro.
Can you give your network settings in Xp and fedora.
Output of ifconfig -a will help.
Also check if you can ping your router.
