Default Network connection issue

2008/6/24 Jim Douglas <jdz99@hotmail.com>:






I boot up, get assigned an IP address by service provider, when I do an ipconfig I see the address.

But I can't browse the internet.* Suggestions?

(The computer has worked for the lat 2 years, on re-boot it no longer works.)

you mean it was up and running for two years and this the first reboot since that?

maybe you're missing something here, did you updated your system before the reboot, what version of fedora do you use? is it a browser issue? what kind of connection do you use? if you're on a network can you see other computers but can't browser the internet? we need more information here to help you,

Are you sure its a valid IP?
DSL or cable internet?got a router?
have you pinged loopback, localhost, gateway? tried pinging a remote IP?
if you can ping by IP but not name then DNS is screwy.

Cable Modem. It is a valid IP. I have a second HD connected to this computer and when I switch to it I can connect to the internet no problem, I am posting from it right now..

I am thinking I may have had the "Services" window open and clicked on something by accident....

pinging is fine, a remote Ip times out...

What happens if you go into services and stop and restart the network
service. I've heard it said on this list that it isn't good to have
both network services and Network Manager running at the same time.
Perhaps you started Network Manager. I think it is the first entry in
the service menu (it is on F9).

Network Manager is not started on bootup, network is.* Restarting network service doesn't work.


thanks,

It does not work or does network fail to start?

Not sure what he meant by that either, cept maybe has to do with
intranet and internet?

Anyway, wonder how his /etc/resolv.conf file is? Does he have his dns
servers listed there? Does he get an IP? Is his gateway and netmask
defined?

I guess if he posted his ifcfg-eth0 contents and /etc/resolv.conf
contents that might lead to a discovery.

Your dual booting fedora and windows? Fedora 8 or 9? What are the first
two numbers of your IP?


An ip that starts with 169.254.x.x is not valid on any network(not
strictly true), if you have one of these then you are not getting a
valid ip via dhcp. If your address begins with 192.168.x.x or 172.16.x.x
then you have a private ip, which seems likely if you can ping the
gateway but not a remote host. Please copy and paste the commands your
using to ping from the terminal. Is the network manager service running?
What is the status of the network service? Look in the services GUI and
note the icon's color and the plug next to it. Highlight the service and
you will get the details. So on my f9 box the network manager shows a
green icon and a plug that looks plugged in( service enabled and
running), while the network service shows a red icon and a plug that is
plugged in(service disabled and running).
On an F8 box the GUI is slightly different and does not show the helpful
little icons but if you highlight the service it will give you a few
details. The network manager should be running and the network service
should show the interfaces that are configured to start at boot time and
currently active interfaces but there probably/shouldn't be a check in
the box next to it.


Remember what you do every step of the way or even *better* take notes
so you don't have to remember :^)


Why did you have the services tab open in the first place?
Have you been playing with the firewall config?
