Hello, I just finished a brand new install of 11.2 on a workstation and it can’t connect to the internet at all. I can ping Google and I can ping devices on my local network but I can’t browse any web pages. I am able to ping the workstation with my windows 7 workstation. I tried disabling the firewall and that didn’t seem to help either. I have it set to use DHCP.
I searched around the forums but I didn’t seem to find an answer that helped my situation.
I can connect to google via IP. So it appears to be a DNS type issue, is there some settings I am missing?

Both of those look correct, but just to make sure, the last routing line
should look like:
0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
BTW, you can always copy and paste output into a file, save the file on
a USB stick, and get it to any computer.
more knowledgeable people here have given you some good advice, my thoughts run toward a problem i had with installing 11.2… ipv6 compatibility.
you might try adding “ipv6.disable=1” to the grub boot parameters at the grub boot screen and see if that solves your dilemma. If it does, then you can add this line to /etc/sysctl.conf to make it default:
net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
as i recall, at the time the Yast2 ipv6 disable selection did not actually prevent the appropriate modules from being loaded so the edit of sysctl.conf was necessary. It may have since been fixed without my knowledge.
As lwfinger says, DNS of your router is functioning. Try his suggestion.
And also revise your original idea: “Can’t connect to the internet”.
In your first post you said that you can ping Google, proving you have connection to the internet, and even that you have DNS resolution.
The only thing you couldn’t (from your first post) is that you “can’t browse any web pages”. Where you even do not tell what browser you use.
Now, after more then 24 hours we all together have found out that your network connection is functioning, that your router works as router ands as DNS server and that you thus have a connection to the internet.
Can you pleas specify now more precise what does NOT work. That is when you “can’t browse any web pages”, at least tell us:
. which browser;
. whch internet page (at least one example);
. if you tried another browser (there are at lerast two on your system when you use KDE, but you did not tell us what DE you use);
. what that browser shows when you try to display that page (any error messages).
Always keep in your mind that on Linux everybody can do things in a miriad of ways and that you should not take it for granted that we, lacking webcam behind you shoulders and crystal balls, can guess what/how you are doing.
here is solution if you are working with Mobile as modem(prefer Nokia), then the follwoing steps are to be followed…
1.Open the Terminal.
2.Go to /etc/wvdial.confg
3. You have to make copy of the same in another Directory and then Edit the the original file at the /etc required folder.
4. The thing are to over written as follows
Init2 = ATQ0 VI EI SO=0 &C1 &D2 +FCLASS= 0
Init3 = AT+ CGDCONT=1,“IP”,“bsnlnet”,"",0,0
Modem Type= Analog Modem
This is the code you have to follow…
I am using bsnlnet with my E63 set using USB connection, in the line of init 3, where bsnlnet is written; its optional…you have to write your Access point instead of bsnlnet, and if you are a bsnl customer you can just copy this thing and paste it.
5.Then open the terminal and go as superuser
to /etc and then wvdial USB
you get the connection done…
ist very easy…if any problem occur please revert…::|;)
@hardy007: What relevance has your post with the OP’s problem? If you’ve followed the thread, you’ll realise we have established internet connectivity via a broadband connection. The issue is apparent browsing functionality (or lack of).
