    debian sid connects to network but i have no internet!

    hi! i am running debian sid on an hp hdx 16 (64 bit) with kde 4.3. i always install new updates and my last update was 2 days ago! now when i booted i could connect to the internet but when i try to visit a web address or even run apt-get update, i get nothing! i tried both wicd and kdenetworkmanager but they don't work! i also tried wifi and ethernet and still nothing! also it can not be the network because i can connect using an acer aspire one with debian sid and gnome. i can also ssh to the hp through my acer but still apt-get update does not load! before the shuting down my hp the last time i had internet working i modified /etc/hosts. could this be the problem?

    my /etc/hosts looks like:

    Code:
    jack@debian:~$ cat /etc/hosts
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    127.0.1.1 debian.local debian
    
    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1 localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    while before changing it looked like:

    Code:
    jack@debian:~$ cat /etc/hosts~
    127.0.0.1	localhost.localdomain localhost
    127.0.1.1	debian
    
    # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
    ::1     localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
    fe00::0 ip6-localnet
    ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
    ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
    ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
    ff02::3 ip6-allhosts
    it is the same both on my hp and my acer but the acer has connection!

    thank you,
    jack

    did you make a backup of your hosts file before changing it?

    yeah but if i restore it then the sendmail application will have a problem. i will check if the internet works when i restore it and if yes i will check for a solution for sendmail. i ll inform you when i do so!
