Am following guidance trying to fix a network web connection to a new broadband I am trying which works with windoze but not opensuse or other linux system (antix).
The suggestion is to disable selinux, check resolv.conf and do some nslookups.
Did a bit of a search and tried
sudo netconfig update -f
This seemed to do the trick without messing with selinux but how do I find out the address of my DNS?
Why do I have this problem in the first place?
Many thanks for the help. I have the internet access working but did not find out what is behind my new wan connection and still cannot get antix to work, only opensuse Leap 15.0. Using nslookup I couldn’t see beyond the default server which tells me it is 192.168.1.1. Cannot see my fixed IP although I know what it is and can ping it.
I am going OT now so please forgive questions. Apparently I am not using the VDSL modem router although that is what it says on the box. The box, a TP-Link TD-W9970 is being used, it seems, like a managed switch and wifi device. The incoming cable is plugged into one of the RJ45 Lan ports, not the modem/router port, and I sccess the box using wifi.
The other end of the cable connects to a dish aerial. I understand this does a wifi hop (or two?) and terminates in a high capacity fibre node serving several clients. At present I cannot access the web page for the router as the factory password has been changed to what the supplier notes tell me but this does not get me through. On reflection though there must be a symmetrical VDSL modem router or similar somewhere upstream between me and the fibre. Any suggestions on how I should look past this first device?
