    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
    Here is the readout from ifconfig:

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:6E:0E:3A:61
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    inet6 addr: fe80::20c:6eff:fe0e:3a61/64 Scope:Link
    RX packets:416 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:170 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:45810 (44.7 Kb) TX bytes:15484 (15.1 Kb)
    Interrupt:5 Base address:0x8800

    lo Link encap:Local Loopback
    inet addr: Mask:
    inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
    UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
    RX packets:50 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:50 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
    RX bytes:3296 (3.2 Kb) TX bytes:3296 (3.2 Kb)

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

    What's the output of 'route'?
