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 192.168.1.1.
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
