suggest you try using another browser than firefox as it often needs a config setting to "talk" to your network. Can you use any of the administration features to update your system ? If so it may just be firefox, if not then you may not REALLY be connected.

i've tried opera and kazehakase to no avail.

pinging google.com shows 'unknown host google.com'.

clearly i dont have a route to the net. my wireless is password-free. what am i doing wrong?

Hello All,

I am able to connect to my network at home and use internet (firefox) with no problems. When I go to school my computer connects to the network but firefox can not find any web addresses. What settings might I need to make in order for firefox to find the network.

Thanks

I had the same problem with a new comp but I fixed it by setting up the connection again. The default settings were no good in my case.

That is basically my situation as well. I can ping websites and get a response. The IT guy said that linux users were having trouble with it, but I'm not exactly sure why. I could connect to the network last year (on Hardy) and it worked fine.

Same thing happening here, i was able to connect to the internet before, then i started playing halo multiplayer online and now i can't view webpages. i tried everything and it said the problem couldn't be repaired automatically, none of my huawei 3 wireless broadband connections work. but the strangest thing is that they all work on my other 2 laptops:confused:, i was starting to think somebody hacked me:confused: it also says that the network adapter is damaged

Sometimes such issues arise due to enabled IPv6
you may try checking it ..
use this command

lsmod | grep inet6

If a command line is returned then its probably not an ipv6 issue..
but it something is returned then you should disable it..

btw.. in both the cases. .. you may try disabling IPv6 for your browswer...
enter "about:config" in the URL bar
and look for network.dns.disableIPv6

if it is set to false.. then double click it and change it to true..
see if you are able to open web pages now..
