okay okay... here we go :Ddo the following: right click on your desktop. you will see a menu entry "run terminal". click it. a terminal should pop up. now type:sudo gedit /etc/resolv.confhit enter. now enter the superuser password (= by default the same password that you use to login, if you are the first user on the newly installed system)the editor should come up the the resolv.conf file.Now type valid DNS entries in this mannernameserver 203.94.243.70nameserver 203.94.227.70nameserver 192.168.1.1once you have modified your file, save it and close the editor.Now the most important part.... somehow the dhcp client keeps modifying the resolv.conf in a set amount of time and that's why the net dosent work.... so you have to lock the file so that it cant be modified now, back at the terminal, typesudo chattr +i /etc/resolv.confnow open your browser or synaptic and test if everything works. :)if not, report back. ;)ohh and btw if you do realise that you have to change the DNS entriessudo chattr -i /etc/resolv.confThis will unlock the file again B)

Well Sanke1 you are right when you say that commands should not be given, but my experience with Ubuntu was bad with the gui as it does now work!!I was configuring SIFY on a friend's PC with Ubuntu and when I entered the default gateway given by Sify , it worked , but only till the next reboot..the settings were lost when i rebooted...hence in Ubuntu you need to work from commad line...(thats what i did finally at his place)But in Fedora/SUSE this is no issue and even I would have recommended a GUI for that.

why all the static ip assignments?

:huh: Where??

and Snake1.... i'm really surprised that it did work for u from the GUI route....
coz it didnt for me atleast....... the DHCP client keeps rewriting the DNS entries...
so the command line route was inevitable.
