only ip address seems to work on browser
I have been configuring my modem and after that I cannot type an address in the address bar without getting a messsage "Address not found". I typed one command, forget what it was but I got unknown host. Also I have an admin computer with xp, connected with a netgear router. My linux computer is ethernet cable connected to the router. Net gear has a blank field under attached devices in the NAME field. Its not really totally blank it has 2 dashes - -. I entered the ip address for google and i get a google search page. I did recently modify my permissions in resolvconf. Frank
Ps my admin xp computer works fine
I have both a dial up modem and dsl, both seem to be working
subsequent edit follows :
I have another HD with Vector Linux on it. I get online with that one. So I guess the problem is not in the router or my anti virus, it is in my Debian Lenny configuration.
3rd edit 1:20pst....When I r click on connection icon..I get
Under Active Connection Information
Primary DNS 192.168.1.1
Secondary DNS 0.0.0.0 ...no error info here apparent to me

You need to check/change those permissions on the resolv.conf and make sure resolv.conf contains a namesearch domain, or it won't work.
Do you use DHCP to get an IP address?

- 08-22-2009 #4If I knew what the correct settings should be, I could try to set them to that. Presently I saw the namerserver listed as my router address. I dont know if my router takes over namerserving for the computers attached to it.
automatically. The address of your router is probably the correct
setting, since the router is also the DHCP server.
You should not need to change permissions on this file, but some
people remove write permission as a workaround when they
want to customize it and prevent it from being modified by DHCP.
Actually, the way to customize it is to change the configuration
of the DHCP client daemon, or go to manual configuration.
