Fedora :: F15 / Firefox Cannot Connect To Internet

Jun 28, 2011

I have a freshly installed dual boot Win 7 and F15. Windows 7 gets on the internet no problem, so does this RHEL/FF machine, iphone too, but F15/Firefox no joy. it's showing me connected to my network just fine. I'm pretty sure it worked at some point because I did my software updates and I have a saved bookmark, though I don't remember exactly.

Networking :: Firefox Can Not Connect Internet (OpenSuse)?

Apr 9, 2010

I have just installed OpenSuse in a brand new desktop. I have got no problem at the installation process. Somehow, I still could not get my firefox to browse internet.I set the network configuration by applying the IP Address, Subnetmask, Standard Gateway etc. I can ping, both internal network and external network. So, I assume, there is no problem exist in relay and accept data.Still, I can not browse using firefox.I could, indeed, open the website google.com, by typing, but can not proceed if I typed

if config =
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:24:1D:C438

OpenSUSE Network :: 11.4 - Firefox Fails To Connect To Internet (Skype Intact)

Jul 26, 2011

I have a Lenovo S10e netbook running a pretty clean version of 32bit opensuse 11.4, with very few standard patches since I installed it all those moons ago. The problem is that firefox cannot connect to the internet, the odd bit is that skype has no such problems. Are there any network related functions that that typically go screwy that might cause such a problem? The netbook really hasn't been used much for tinkering to have 'accumulated' a problem, but I'm about to give it to the extremely non-technical parents in law and cannot have it misbehaving, especially not as they are in a different country.

Fedora :: Firefox Browser - Could Not Connect To Host

Mar 10, 2011

I'm new to fedora, and pretty new to Linux. I recently installed fedora and had to troubleshoot most problems with the drivers myself, before installing the system I searched for all the drivers in my computer so I could do it easily. After getting everything working in proper conditions, IE, wireless, and sound worked wonderfully, I was able to hear, and connect to aMSN and my wireless network. I didn't notice any problems until I actually started firefox to browse the web.

It couldn't connect to a host, or resolve it. It wouldn't work when it was wired, and wouldn't work wireless. I reinstalled it to see if it would work without me messing with anything and just connecting through ethernet, and still it didn't work, same problem. I wouldn't ask if I could find a site that had the same problem but I've been searching for about 2 hours. I'd like to use Fedora asap, and get rid of Ubuntu.

Fedora :: Can't Connect To The Internet

Apr 13, 2010

I have Fedora 12 Repo installed. The computer has wire and wireless connections but I cant set it up any one of them. I can add a wire connection but it does not connect. I cant add any wireless connection because all the different options dont show up the apply button active. The dual boot does not work also. It only allows you to log on to Fedora Repo. I tried to install the i386 option but it failed to connect. I was using Mepis 8.5 before and I did not have any of these problems when I first installed it.

Fedora :: Firefox After Autoten Fail - No Internet Access

Jul 3, 2009

I just tried installing Google Earth on my fresh 64 bit Fedora 11 install using autoten, which I used earlier to install java and some codecs. I also used leighs guide to install 64 bit flash and remove nspluginwrapper. All was working fine. Then I decided to use autoten to install googleearth. It failed early giving an error saying:

First error was:
resolving dnmouse.org... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address `dnmouse.org'
Error getting repository data for googleearth, repository not found
# checking installation..
Size of report file is 0 lines

Error window opened up saying:
Google earth, was not installed correctly, please check you have an active connection. From this point on, Firefox cannot access the internet. I can ping google.com and dnmouse.com successfully. I did the update that included the new firefox 3.5, so accessing the internet and my connection is active. Konversation is working correctly. Just firefox is having the problem. Message: Firefox can't find the server at start.fedoraproject.org, or google, or redhat etc.
I renamed the .mozilla folder, and restarted firefox, no luck. My /etc/resolve.conf contains the correct nameservers. Also tried a reboot, no luck, still have active eth0 connection but no FF internet access.

Fedora :: Connect To A Page Or Even Preferences - Firefox Crashes

Sep 17, 2009

Trying to open Firefox, and find that I cannot. It crashes. So, have opened Seamonkey, and am writing this from there. F11 updated to the latest on an ThinkPad R51. If I try my terminal, it opens provided I quickly open an empty tab before the home page loads. As soon as I try to connect to a page, or even preferences, Firefox crashes.

Networking :: Only Firefox Fails To Connect In Some Networks Using Fedora 14?

May 23, 2011

In all but one place my HP Pavilion laptop running Fedora 14 will work flawlessly to use the Internet for e-mail, ftp, http, etc. In one network there is a wireless router - Cisco/Linksys E3000 - that allows every computer to use the Internet normally for wireless or for wired connections, every computer but mine. If I use Google's Chrome I can access the Internet. I can ping any web site too, but the moment I try to access anything with Firefox 3.6.17 there is a long delay and the standard error page appears. Weather or not I use a wired connection is apparently irrelevant.The Windows 7 computers in the same network are free of this curious problem. Strangely I have noted a problem like this, possibly the same problem, with another network at a coffee shop and they both share the misfortune of using AT&T, which is proud to not support Linux ... for customers of course (it's good enough for themselves I'm sure)

Fedora Installation :: Cannot Connect To Internet / Way To Do

Oct 24, 2009

I recently installed Fedora 11 on Sony Vaio laptop and I cannot connect to the internet. I used many different kind of browsers and no luck. I am using wireless it is Broadcom 2200 card and i can tell the driver is installed correctly and it says I am connected to the wireless fine. Strange thing is that when i use software update it downloads them fine which means the internet is there. But I cannot goto any webpage with my browser. I run ifconfig and i can even ping websites without problem. I checked my firewall to see if its blocking my port 80 but it was not blocking.

Fedora Networking :: Cant Connect To Internet Via 11?

Nov 3, 2009

I installed fresh copy of fedora 11. I can't activate or deactivate ethernet from system>Administration>Network. Why is this............I can connect to internet directly by enabling network icon on right topmost corner. Even doing so dosen't guarantee connection at times. What could be wrong here ? Also my network icon shows it is disconnected whenever I start my computer. Cant fedora 11 just connect to the internet while it boots ?

Fedora :: Unable To Connect To The Internet?

Oct 15, 2010

Just installed Fedora 13 (64-bit). Brand new to Linux and not much of a computer expert.

As the subject line says, I am unable to connect to the Internet.

Things that I have already tried based on threads posted for similar problems:

* ping -c 5 www.google.com
unknown host www.google.com
* ping -c 5
Network is unreachable

I connect to the Internet via wired ethernet. The modem/gateway is 2Wire mod. 2701HG-B. Service provider is AT&T DSL. Ethernet controller is Realtek Semiconductor RTL8111/81688 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet. When I go to System -> Administration -> Network Device Control it shows eth0 as inactive.

Network Configuration shows:

* Hostname: localhost.localdomain
* Primary/Secondary/Tertiary DNS: blank
* DNS Search Path: blank

I have no problem whatsoever connecting to the Internet when using Windows XP.

Fedora :: Unable To Connect To The Internet

Jul 20, 2011

I've been using 3 different distros for the last 2 weeks. Ubuntu, Fedora and Mint. And i've been using Windows since I can remember. I won't talk here about the benefits I got with Linux, because everyone knows that. But there's something about Linux that keeps annoying me, no offence to Linux users, and I want to ask you about that.

It just seems impossible to install additional software without an Internet connection. I tried: Keryx, Opyum, Suhi,huh?, Synaptics generate download script, yum -downloadonly. I didn't yet: Debian 10DVD I'm not programmer, and my knowledge about computers and operative systems is very small. But installing software on Windows the worst case of dependencies i saw was I had to download just one more .exe file (.NET framework or klite codec pack installers, for example).

question: Is there any Linux distro or any way where packages are managed in a more compact fashion? Suppose I want to use Wine, how I download some megapackage with ALL dependencies or something like that? How system administrators manage where no Internet connection at all (if that possible)?
