1) Can any other protocol access the web by names? (ssh, tlenet, ftp, etc)
2) Do you have DNS servers?
3) Can you ping IPs?
4) Can you access websites by their IP? http://66.218.71.198/ will bring up a yahoo error page.

And can you "lynx" a website? Open up a terminal and type 'lynx' then 'g' to open up a url, type in:
www.linuxquestions.org
And it will ask if you want to accept a cookie, whatever you choose, then let us know if it brings up LQ.

This is in addition to the great questions from jkrohn.

Cool

That is a DNS prob. Are you sure you put the DNS entries in the setup.

First thing you'll need to do is call your ISP and ask them for the addresses to their DNS servers. Then, when they tell you enter them into /etc/resolve.conf like so:
nameserver 4.2.2.1
nameserver 4.2.2.2

And so on. Replacing 4.2.2.1 with the actual DNS IP's they give you.

Cool

No, the nameserver will be an IP that your ISP gives you. Your ISP supplies your DNS servers to you for surfing. Searching localdomain (for newbs) won't produce anything (I say n00bs because you could setup a DNS server from your home, however THIS IS A LOT OF WORK, and n00bs usually don't do this). You need to have resolv.conf point towards the dns sites that your ISP has given, so if you have dns1 and dns2, plug their IPS into /etc/resolv.conf and you should be good to go. They should start with:
nameserver
And then follow with the IP of the DNS1 and DNS2 like so:
nameserver 1.2.3.4
nameserver 5.6.7.8
Only replace 1234 and 5678 with the DNS1 and DNS2 ip's.

And no worries, I am a glorified newbie too We are all here to help and learn from each other.

Cool

Can you post up what you are using for DNS1 and DNS2? And can you also post up your /etc/resolv.conf file for us to look at?

We'll get this fixed for you, if it's fixable

Are you sure it's working??? Because 25.63.256.34 dosen't look like a valid ip address... (If I remember correctly, the numbers allowed are from 0 to 255 not 256!)

So if it is working, that means that you have a super ISP... Your ip is untraceble through the internet!!!

Cool!!!
