Hi,

Try to ping a public IP... like 17.112.152.32 (www.apple.com).  If you received a reply, it is probably that you DNS setting is not correct.  I haven't been using Mandriva for a while now, but if you use a terminal just edit the file /etc/resolv.conf to have:
nameserver <your-dns-ip-address>

I did that and no luck. Also deactivated any firewalls running. I guess it is one of the packages i installed. I reinstalled everything but with less packages and it is working perfectly now, I do wonder.
