I have installed linux for the fourth time and i think it will be the last.But now i have a small problem.Im trying to connect to my internet provider.I see connected to the network with .....speed.Ok so far.But i cant accept any data at all.Netscape doesnt work(unknown local host) and neither xchat.It seems that i'm connected but i'm not.The strange one is that i've managed to connect during my first installation succesfull but now with the same settings i cant.
Can anyone help me?I dont want to change into win every time i want to surf.

You may have to set up your /etc/resolve.conf file which sets up the DNS servers. Or if you are using kppp, you will need to enter them in there. You will have to contact your ISP about them.
