Internet connection setup help!
Im new to linux but I am an advanced computer user in general.
I just installed the MDK 10.1 distro with KDE and everything works fine except for the internet connection. Im on a LAN and I have set the eth0 to use dhcp.
This is the strange part, it has found the dns servers and even has the correct IP that I get in windows but still I cant connect using konqueror.
If I ping localhost I get 127.0.0.1
Here is the readout from ifconfig:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:6E:0E:3A:61
inet addr:126.96.36.199 Bcast:188.8.131.52 Mask:255.255.255.0

I may be wrong but to me this looks like a proper configuration?
So what have I missed?
