Mandriva 2008 + internet


I can't access internet. All seems to be OK on connection, but I can't load pages. ADSL connection.

That's not much information you give us. Is it wireless or cable? Do you connect directly to the adsl-modem or first to a router? How did you try to set up the connection in the MCC?

I use a very popular conection here (Brazil), called Speedy. My configuration is DSL and PPPoE protocol. It's not cable and nor wireless. Thanks.

What I meant is wireless or ethernet-cable - I assume the latter

So I still don't know how you try to connect - between your computer and the dsl-modem is much space for other hardware. If for example you connect to a router with builtin dhcp-server and modem, you have to choose ethernet as the connection type in the mcc and configure your router directly via Webbrowser.

So what do you have? You said "All seems to be OK on connection" - does that mean you allready get an IP? Please post the output of
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig

So it looks like you configured your ethernetcard manually, right? Please tell me exactly, which steps you did to configure your network.

You still didn't tell which / what kind of hardware you use. If you want me to help you I really have to know this because from what you tell the fault can be anywhere. Is it just an adsl-modem right beside your computer or 15 meters away in the cellar? Or maybe you try to connect to another computer which is allready connected? Without this knowledge all I can do is guess.

Yes, I have an adsl-modem right beside my computer. No, I don't have any other computer I have to connect to access the modem. Thanks.

Ok, thanks for the information. In your case you normally set up an internet connection in the mcc under -> network & internet -> configure a network interface -> dsl and just follow the instructions.

Now the point I don't understand is why you allready have a (private) ip-address (192.168.1.3), because this is for setting up a pppoe-connection not necessary and is not caused by Mandriva. So I assume you set up your ethernetcard manually by yourself, correct? What did you try so far? Did you first setup the ethernetcard and after that the dsl-connection?

Yes, but then I choose PPPoE.

My modem requires ethernetcard. Configuration is set automatically, by I have already chosen that on configuration process.

Thanks.

Well, as far as I know automatically configuring the networkcard under Mandriva 2008.0 means setting up the appropriate driver so you can use it, but does not include assigning an ip-address to it.
So the question is if you didn't do it, where does it come from? To me it looks like your modem has a builtin dhcp-server. Easiest way to check this is open up a webbrowser, enter 192.168.1.1 in the addressbar and see what happens. If I was right, you should get a login box with username and password. Standard configuration for this is often both 'admin', check the manual for that.

If I was wrong, next step would be checking the control lights on the modems front panel. Tell me which lights there are and each status (on, off, flashing). Oh, and it would be nice to know which manufacturer/ model your modem is.

So check the manual for username and password. Once you're in, you can configure your connection, firewall, port forwarding or whatever it offers to you.
The go back to the mcc -> network & internet -> configure a network interface and then go Ethernet -> choose your ethernetcard -> the rest is preselected and should be ok (get ip-address and dns-server automatically).

Now the doors of the WorldWideWeb should be wide open for you
