Internet sites not working in FF browser / CentOS

Postby mobilpress » 2011/07/20 09:48:38

I need small help. I installed CentOS. NetworkManager successfully installed and launched. I can ping any IP from terminal but I can't open any site in browser except 127.0.0.1 I can't open IP of the modem 192.168.1.1 in browser also.

The results of some commands:

ifconfig
eth0 Link encap: Ethernet HWaddr 7D:60:00:00:00:00
inet addr: 192.168.1.5 Bcast: 192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

RX packets:1572 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:1572 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

====================
nslookup google.com
connection timed out; no servers could be reached
====================
ping google.com
ping: unknown host google.com
====================
curl -l google.com
curl: (6) Couldn't resolve host 'google.com'



Any ideas?

I found at least one hit on google that says that a SIS network card with that weird "0xdead" memory address cannot handle an MTU of 1500 and it needs to be set to 1436 or less. That article recommended 1024.

Nameservers?

cat /etc/resolv.conf

I wrote DNS1 and DNS2 in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 which I received from Internet provider:
DNS1=82.209.253.4
DNS2=193.232.248.2

Now:
cat /etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 82.209.253.4
nameserver 193.232.248.2

ping google.com
OK 0%packet loss etc.

nslookup google.com
Server: 82.209.253.4
Address: 82.209.253.4#53

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: google.com
Address: 74.125.39.103
etc.....................................

curl -l google.com

No any answer :-(

And the browsing from Firefox not working as before.

So you can ping and use nslookup both of which use small packets that probably don't use the entire 1500 byte MTU that you had set before. Did you try reducing the MTU to a smaller value? Try `ifconfig eth0 mtu 1024` and see if that helps. If it works then try halfway between 1024 and 1500 and keep trying halfway values until you narrow it down to a workable value that's as big as it can be.

Tested to change MTU.

No success.
