Weird Networking Problem

Post by lobster8 » Sun Nov 28, 2004 7:37 am

Hello,

I have configured Gentoox to static network addresses. I can ping my PC, the router, and internet sites.

However, when using the Konquerer browser, I cannot receive information from the outside. The browser indicates that the webite was contacted, but the browser waits forever for a reply.

BTW, I am using XBOX - ICS PC(1 NIC + 1 wireless card) - Wireless Router. Everything works with Xbox Media Center, Linksboks but not with Gentoox.

XBOX
192.168.0.3
gateway
192.168.0.1

ICS PC
Nic from Xbox
192.168.0.1
Nic to wireless router
192.168.2.2
gateway
192.168.2.1

router
192.168.2.1

I am sure there are some smart people here who know what's going on here. I have been scouring without success.

TIA

Lobster

It looks like there is a connection to the internet; however, the return packets from certain ip addresses will not be received.

I.e.

http://www.google.com resolves to 216.239.39.99. No return packets are received.

google.com resolves to 66.102.7.99. Pings are successful with this IP.

This is as far as I have gotten. Please shine some light on this.

Thanks.

Lobster

google is mirrored across the world some mirrors will have routes that allow a ping some don't, you will get a different response depending on the time of day /part of the world you are in.
If you keep an open mind, will your brain fall out?

Thanks, but I don't think that is the problem

With the NT computer, it works. Seems that certain URLs just don't work like http://www.google.com, mail.yahoo.com.

Sites like http://www.craigslist.org, http://www.mozilla.org, etc work.
