Compiled 2.6.9 Kernel now have no internet .. Need Help


Hey all.

Well today I decied that I should try my first kernel upgrade and I tried it. It was very very easy and took like 3-5 minutes for everything. I dunno why people say it's hard or see as hard when it's so simple.


Well after booting into it I have no internet. I can ping my local network, my ISP and other address by ip address but when I eneter in the web address for my isp in mozilla, it doesn't work.


Can anybody help me? Maybe I missed something when I configured the kernel.

Thanks

Have you got your ISPs name servers listed in /etc/resolv.conf?

Do you have the correct routing table? Can you post the output from:
route -n
traceroute www.linuxquestions.org

well I just loaded into the 2.6.9 kernel and I checked that resolv.conf and it just had

"new search" in it so I added my dns servers and still nothing.

I will get that info then post here in like 20 seconds

I looked at the dhcp config file and everything in there is right

Can anybody help me or should I just forget about the 2.6.9 kernel?

I thank the person up there for trying to help but since I can't resolve this problem on my own I am just gonna forget about the 2.6 kernel.


rm -rf Linux-2.6.9 ..... done

Just to know, could you access web sites using their ip address?

Only my ISP address

I think it's a DNS issue but have no idea on how to fix it.

I already took it out of my bootloader and deleetd what I knew was the new kernel.

You can say I stop trying like so many others
