No internet/but I can ping router


I set my wireless card, an SMC 2835w/rt2400 chpset.
I can ping the router, but I can't ping anything else.
like www.google.com, and nothing loads in firefox.
Could iptables be blocking me??
If so how do I shut it off??

I did:
iwconfig ra0 mode Managed
iwconfig essid 'MyRouter'
ifconfig ra0 xxxx netmask xxxx
route add default gw xxxx

Kwifi says I'm connected to my router.

Could I install 'Guardog' or something simular to take
of iptables??

you have to also add your dns address to the file /etc/resolv.conf
the entry should just be:
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx
and that should work.

dns address?
I don't know the address of the nameserver.

I did 'dhcpcd' that didn't help.

You should be able to use the IP for your router...........works for me.

Usually I do this for connecting, let's assume your nic interface is called eth0

ifconfig eth0 [set your ip address here] up
ip r a default via [ip address of router]
echo "nameserver [ip of router]" > /etc/resolv.conf

If you can ping your router, but not google, then it could be either a dns or gateway problem. If you can ping an ip address outside your router, then it's dns that's the problem. Gateway just lets you access the internet.

This will not work for everyone. You can google OpenDNS and use their nameservers or forward port 53 tcp/udp on your router and ...

Code:
 echo "nameserver 127.0.0.1" > /etc/resolv.conf ; /etc/rc.d/rc.bind start
Bingo Bango your own nameserver! That's the fun way in my opinion.

Note: I havent used slack in a while but you may have to open the host's firewall as well

Code:
iptables -A INPUT -s 0/0 -p tcp --dport 53 -j ACCEPT ; iptables -A INPUT -s 0/0 -p udp --dport 53 -j ACCEPT
Again, it has been a while since I used Slack but I think you have to add that to or create a firewall script and then add and if -x statement to the multi-user startup script.

Slackware is fun
