Hey All, I have an intresting problem with my newly installed Broadband connection. I am running Redhat 7.3, for reference. Anyhow, I my eth0 is activated, and I am able to connect to a Gnutella servers, but I am not able to get web access. If I completely uninstall the network card, the internet can be brought up for a small period of time, but inevitably it goes down. Has anyone seen anything like this before?

gnutella connects by connecting to ann IP address (not a www.blah.com name) doesn't it? sounds like a name resolving issue to me.

i remember having to change something in my connection script. I've had a search, but can't find the link.

because you didn't say what your broadband was (adsl, satellite, cable) or who your provider is, i can't help much more at the moment.

If it's telstra adsl (or most other adsl providers) have a read of the linuxathome.net article http://www.linuxathome.net/bpalogin.php

I remember it was a really simple change to make, possibly in /etc/resolv.conf or in /etc/rc3.d/some_file_I_cant_think_of
