View Full Version : Fedora 15 hp tx2000 wpa issue
9th October 2011, 12:37 AM
I seem to have no problem connecting to wireless wether its WEP or WPA/WPA2.
I have no issues connecting and pulling up the default gateways, however I cannot seem to get it to connect to any website at all! Its very strange and am at wits end on it, anyone have any ideas?

If you're using Firefox, try toggling the Firefox config property network.dns.disableIPv6 to true. Start Firefox, enter about:config in the URL nav text box, agree, scroll, right-click the property to toggle.

DNS resolution maybe? What happens if you enter an IP address in the browser URL nav box? Say, 18.104.22.168 which is www.google.com.

Ya I have pinged google and came up with no response the router is set to automatic ISP. I am quite certain at this point it is a DNS issue however I tried doing a static DNS just sort of new to it I probably did not enter it properly...

Try entering some DNS nameserver IP addresses in NetworkManager. Below is a link to the steps to enter OpenDNS's IP addresses in NetworkManager. It's for Ubuntu, but the steps are exactly the same for Fedora (ignore step #8). You can substitute other namerservers if you wish, say, your ISP's.https://store.opendns.com/setup/operatingsystem/ubuntu
