Cannot connect to the internet
i have just install redhat 6.2 which i have put on my network.
i got three computer on my network.
3. Win Server 2003
4. Belkin wireless adls router
All the machine are fine and are pinging each other, all the windows machine can connect to the internet via the router. The router is acting as the gateway : 192.168.24.254.
I have a problem with the linux box. I am using dhcp and the linux box was assigned the following IP address : 192.168.24.78 ,hostname:vinux. I can ping all the machine and even the router from the linux box or even ping the linux machine from the windows machines. But the problem i am having is when i trying to connect to the internet from the linux box. The error msg :- Bad request
The following test i have done :-
etho Link encap:Ethernet Hwaddrr xxxxxx
int addr:192.168.24.78 Bcast:192.168.24.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
int addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
ping -c 4 router
ping -c 4 google.com
ping:unknown host google.com
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.24.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 etho
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
default router 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

I had exactly the same problem a few days ago, it came down to a communication problem between the router and the Linux machine.
Solution was to reset the network connection, the way my router said to do this was:- unplug router for 15sec then reboot the computer, Could be differant for other routers though so check you kit.
Mine's worked perfectly since.

why does /etc/resolv.conf list a nameserver at a network address ?
127.0.0.0 is a network address not a valid host address.
If you are intending to point at the local machine through the loopback address that is 127.0.0.1
you need to fix or remove that entry from your resolv.conf to start.. then test againfar...out
