Why can't I connect to the internet?


I just installed SuSE 9.0 and it seems to be working great with only one problem. When I try to connect to a website, I get an error while trying to load the webpage and it doesn't connect.
I checked my network card configuration and it shows that my Asustek Ethernet controller is configured as eth0 with DHCP. Does this mean that it is configured correctly? and if so then why am I not able to open up a webpage?

Any help would be welcome

Open a terminal and run ifconfig (as root) Does it show eth0 with the right ip info from your isp or router if you're using one?

Usually your browser tells you what it's doing at any time (ie looking up hostname, connecting, sending request, etc). Which one is it geting stuck at?

Usually these kinds of problems arise from badly configured proxy or name server settings.

If your ISP use DHCP then your network card should be configured with DHCP...

If you were given an IP, gateway, dns, etc then you should configure it manually

It is likely to be the default route..

route -n

david@zeus:~> /sbin/route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 wlan0
0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 wlan0
david@zeus:~>


route add default gw <ipofrouter>
