    Nope, not without more information.
    What do you get when you try to google?
    Can you ping google?
    What does your resolv.conf file look like?

    I figured it out:

    I don't know what the reason but I have to do like this:

    ifdown eth1
    ifup eth1

    Then it will work perfectly.

    Thanks for your reply.

    You had better make sure that your networking is configured to autostart, or you may have troubles again...post your distro if you want/need help with that.

    Thanks atreyu,
    I did set it auto start but it goes like that. I don't know why. Thanks anyway.
