    TCP/IP


    Just curious if anybody ran into this before? After setting up my network.. netconfig and then ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.101
    I go to lynx www.yahoo.com and it says "searching yahoo.com first"
    than "searching yahoo.com.com (guessing)" it then goes through .net .edu .org and blah blah .. then it says /usr/local/yahoo.com *something*
    Cannot open document.

    I can ping my router.. i can ping 127.0.0.1 but i can't ping anything off of my network. I know it's an easy fix i just can't figure it out Thanks

    I'd start with just basic connectivity. Sounds like you can't get through your router. This could be due to several reasons:

    Issue of pinging outside ip's

    1. Misconfiguration of router to your isp. i.e wrong gateway, subnet mask, blocking all outbound traffic etc....

    2. Firewall is blocking access at router.

    I can ping my router.. i can ping 127.0.0.1
    Thats your internal loopback address so your pinging yourself. If you know your internal ip of your router try pinging it.

    netconfig and then ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.101
    Did you set a fixed ip on your box or did you setup your linux box and router to use DHCP via the router?

    Last is are you using a host file ?

    i already have a network setup.. the network has been up for about a year. I am just adding the linux box. Yea i know the 127.0.0.1 is the loopback. I can ping my internal IP address on the router. I can ping the router. I can ping EVERYTHING internel but nothing external. and every other computer works on the net.

    p.s. and it's a static IP .. i tried the Dynamic IP but that didn't worth either.

    So you'v emade it clear its not the internnal net. Then that leaves your router and it setup. I'd review it, and turn off any firewall option until you resolve your connection issue.
