Hi,
I have now moved back to Ubuntu 6.06 because I had more problems with SUSE than I could shake a stick at :D

So got my DVD, installed it all, all went fine, BUT
There's no internet...network works fine, I can see the router and modem but can't access the net.
Loged back onto SUSE and the internet still works fine.

Any idea :?:

ubuntu sucks. lol


thats a really odd situation.. whats the internal ip that it gives you? because if its a 169.#.#.# then thats usually bad and things are not working properly.
do you have any other computers on your network? if so, can you see / ping / access them?

192.168.1.1 is modem 192.168.0.1 is router.
Yes there is another PC and a Laptop which can both be seen.

I hate ubuntu as well, the instalation was too simple no options at all. I asked at a forum I have been a member of for a long time and they all told me to go back to ubuntu, what distro do you recomend?

then you need to have a netmask of 255.255.0.0. The standard for home networks is 255.255.255.0, which is probably what you have in Ubuntu. you should consider changing your existing devices so they're on the same network too unless you have some reason to keep them separated.

Use Fedora Core and follow this. Get the i386 version if you don't want to have to worry about compatability issues with Java and Flash (too much).

I did that what distro test and it said Fedora.
A reinstall fixed it, I am having majour problems with the whole network at the moment.
About once - twice a day the internet just goes, networks still fine can see the modem and router. But cannot access the internet.
But if I reset the modem and router it works fine again.

I don't have a clue what to do....

i would have to agree with the Feodra suggestion.
that problem may have to do with your ISP. have you called them to see if they've been having any problems or outages?
otherwise you may have a problem with your router/modem.
but i could also just be speaking from my rear :D

but yea. fedora is a really good distro IMHO. :]

I've got some people helping me out with my network on an other forum.
I am trying to get Feodra but all the downloads time out after about 1Gig.

You're probably having network issues because of the exact reason I stated. Try changing all of your IP addresses to 192.168.0.x and make sure you change your DHCP server settings to the same 192.168.0.x range.
