Can't access internet using terminal but not using browser?


I am trying to access internet using the terminal, which is connected through a Huawei USB Modem. I can access internet fine with Firefox but not with the terminal. Please help me!

Might be a terminology confusion - but a terminal by itself won't "access the internet". You can run a text-based browser in a terminal though. Try lynx (included in slackware).

Thanks for replying magicm, but links/lynx works fine (which I forgot to mention). Ping or slackpkg don't. Where might be the problem?
