Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 97402
cannot load webpage with a working modem
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:54:49 EDT
Description of problem: I managed to make my Lucent modem work and dial into
ISP and everything (by package ltmodem-6.00c.tar.gz), but somehow I couldn't
load any webpage. I wonder if it has anything to do with wvdial or internal
settings of linux for webbrowser to work?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. After successfully compiling, then loading modules and
wvidialconf /etc/wvdial.conf, a working modem is ready
2. Dial into ISP with phone, user, passwd edited from wvdial
3. It shows fine till connection is established with an IP address assgined
Actual results: After IP address is assigned and showing connected speed, it
stops. Then I attempt to open mozilla and try load some webpage, it shows
error message (Invalid address name...) which means there's no internet
connection at all.
Additional info: I wonder if should there be any interna settings in linux for
webbrowser to recognize the established internet connection ? Appreciate your
missing nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf??
