Are you running it on a live cd? Have you tried using firefox if it is installed? You probably have-Just asking, what have you tried already?
Also, is the computer hooked up to the internet with a cable or are you using a wireless connection?

well since i dual booted i can connect online on vista but when i try it on fedora on firefox or anything, right when fedora loads it tells me that its not connected to internet.

i have a router so LAN

and there 1 thing i remember when setting up the network during the fedora installation, when it asked me what do i wanted to connect to...i had no idea so i just went with the defualt one and FTP, even tho i had no clue.

thanks for the help!!
