    problem getting online with Xfce


    i have both gnome and xfce installed. i can get everything to run in gnome, but it's so slow on my older computer. i love how fast xfce runs, but i can't seem to get online with it.

    whenever i fire up firefox it tells me it can't resolve the host. even though everything is active and what not

    am i just missing something obvious?

    it seems like you may not have the right ip address for going online or something similar. does the internet work in GNOME? what type of connection are you using (i.e. dial-up, DSL, or cable)?
