Sometimes i get to connect with my Mandrake 9 box, and other times not.
Almost all of the time i get "connected" to the net, but can't do anything.
KPPP dials and docks to the panel. When i click on details, it shows me
that i have a local and remote ip.It also shows some minimal bites sent
Problem is i can't open any pages or connect to mail server.
Problem with DNS?
But then, other times it work - usually i have to open up Mandrake
Control Center > Connection, and set up my LAN and modem with the
wizard, and when they ask to test the connection, i do that.
Maybe this is just by chance.
Tried a few times again this morning. The one time i got connected after
doing the wizard thing, the wizard gave me the following message:
Problems occured during configuration.
Test your connection via net_monitor or mc. If your connection doesn't work,
you might want to relaunch the configuration.
I could still open pages, so i didn't mind.
Later when i tried to open a new page, konqueror gave me:
An error occured while loading http://www.justlinux.com/:
Unknown host www.justlinux.com
So i disconnected and ran the wizard again.
It appeared to "connect" again, but this time i received the following
from the wizard, and wasn't able to do anything:
The system doesn't seem to be connected to internet.
Try to reconfigure your connection.
I use the ip of 18.104.22.168 with subnet of 255.255.0.0.
I configured my DNS and gateway as 127.0.0.1 in the wizard.
