I have a home network consisting of two XP machines and a FC4 box. I connect to the internet via DSL-G604T router/modem. The router acts as a DHCP server and appears to be working, I can see all my machies listed in the LAN Clients list. The XP machines can connect to the internet with no problems, but I cannot browse from the linux box.
I have found that if I ping a website (ping www.google.com.au
) I can then sometimes browse via firefox. If I change my DNS (in Network setup) to point to my ISP instead of my router it works fine, but I then lose the ability to ping to any of the boxes on the network via their hostname. Its not a big problem but I think something is not configured correctly and I would like to resolve it.
Ant suggestions would be appreciated.
