Hi guys, it's me again and I FINALLY fixed the internet :). I'm so happy and thanks a lot for the help I needed it!, thanks again. Now I've got 3 little problems again :( :
1. Every time I open firefox (after i log in) it starts in offline mode, is there any way to make it start always in online mode?
2.I have to active the internet (system>administration>network) every time i turn on the computer.
3. and my biggest problem is that i cant install the softwares (system>administration>add/remove software). When i try to install them, shows up a window that says :"No network connection available Cannot install when offline" and internet is working now, I really don't know what to do. Please help me and sorry for my english.

I had the same problem. I solved removing NetworkManager and NetworkManager-gnome.

Instead of removing anything you could try:

chkconfig NetworkManager off
chkconfig network on

and see if that sorts your problem.

Another option is to configure the network manager.

Go to system / administration / network
double click the ethX connection (normally eth0)
select "controlled by NetworkManager"
Select the "Hardware Device" tab
Copy the MAC address
Click OK

Right Click the Computer in the top right (mine had a red X on it)
Select Edit Connections
Click Add
Paste the MAC address
Click the IPv4 Settings and verify the settings there (DHCP or Manual IP)

The red X went away and so did the offline message.
