    Internet connection problem! but not in konqueror

    Im pretty new to linux just so u know. Anyway i recently replaced my speedtouch modem for a linksys adsl modem that connects through my nforce3 250gb on board ethernet port.

    In every distro i have tried (suse, mandrake, unbuntu, slax, yoper, and my current system mepis) the internet connection works fine, but only through konqueror!

    Firefox and mozilla in all distros just hang at "connecting" on the status bar. But with firefox i can connect to the modem through

    I also cannot update any of the distros through programs like "yast" for suse and apt-get for mepis or unbuntu as they cannot connect to the internet. I have tried turning off the firewalls in all the distros but that hasnt helped. Its all very confusing to me and i dont understand at all why it isnt working properly.

    I will really appreciate the help

    its been almost a month with no reply! Is there any chance of any help?

    I recently tried mepis linux and found that the 2.4 kernel works fine with my linksys modem, also i found out that there is no problem with the ethernet port as i have used two other ethernet cards.

    It seems that i can only connect to the internet using a 2.4 kernel, with 2.6 kernel i can connect to the net but only browse it through konqueror, not through firefox or anything else that needs an internet connection e.g. yast online update in suse
