Description Benjamin Zhou 2000-01-28 16:56:49 EST
I updated my Linux with fixed rp3 and ppp from errate. But the problem
persists.

My modem is ok, working fine under win98. rp3 dialed into ISP, but could
not find even home.netscape.com. My /etc/resolv.conf contains the right
nameserver IP address, even my /etc/ppp/resolv.conf is the same.

I have been reinstalled my Linux many many times. It is frustrating!

Thank you for your attention.

Regards

This is odd.  If your ISP's nameservers are listed in /etc/resolv.conf, things
should be working.

Check that when you run "/sbin/ifconfig", you get a section in the output
dedicated to ppp0, and that when you run "/sbin/route -n", you have exactly one
line with "0.0.0.0" in the "genmask" column, and the corresponding "gateway"
value on that line is the same as the "P-t-P" value given for the ppp0 interface
by ifconfig.

Is your PC networked to other computers in your home?  What are the contents of
your /etc/resolv.conf file?
