    Pleeeeeeezz Make this work!


    OK,
    First, thanks for looking at my post.
    Second, I need help figuring out my networking problem.

    I have mdk 10, on an a7v8x MB, and a barton xp2500, 512 corsair pc 3200, yada yada.

    I, until late had the a7n8x board, same with the nvidia chipset. I killed that board (no need to get into details), and replaced it with its via counterpart.
    I have found since then that I have networking problems with mdk10 and/or the 2.6.x kernel. With an older version of mandrake (9.2 with the 2.4.x kernel) it works fine.
    It should be noted however, that I tried another nic in this system, and had the same issue, so it may have nothing to do with the kernel or MB at all.
    So heres whats happening.....

    My system is cool with my lan card. I can get to most websites through my dsl.
    I am experiencing no packet loss, or out of control latency. BUT: 95% of all websites can't load. At best the same websites just time out or trickle in halfway and then time out.
    This page (for example) as well as some other .orgs can load perfectly and quickly. But most pages (google, msn. cnn, etc..) will not load. Maybe some text, and then a time out failure.

    I have tried the most obvious solutions, including constant reinstallation, hashing out the nameserver line in /etc/resolv.conf, and tried the whole 9 yards of this: http://web.onetel.net.uk/~showerail/...net_setup.html
    and I'm still right back here confused.

    Without further adoo, let me flood this with my info, listed in order. At least I believe this to be the right information to start with, but I don't get what to look for !!

    have you checked the firewall options ?maybe you have to configure iptables or so.

    Greetings,

    and thanks for your reply.

    I have completely disabled the firewall (uh, oh) and also removed any and all security involving the internet. Then I restarted, and I find that nothing has changed.
    Grr!
    What could the difference be between 9.2 and 10 MDK?
    Ive got half a mind to just reinstall 9.2 and say heck with it until something new comes out!

    What would you look for next?

    are your external interfaces protected (ppp??).they should be disabled to work..i don't really think that it's an isp problem because as you said it was working on mdk9.2 ..have you tried to check browser settings or select another browser to use?
