Ok, well, if you're getting an IP address then we need to find out what
devices you have, and what errors you're getting.
1st, from a command shell (konsole)
Enter the following:
sudo su -
Then enter your password.
This will get you a "root" shell, so we don't have to keep typing "sudo" at
the front of every line.
then copy the output and paste it in a reply.
it's not easy to copy everything. Remember I'm writing mails with my Nokia. :)
With ifconfig I get:
eth0 which is the intel wireless card
eth1 which is the intel wired card
(both with mac and no ip addr because not connected. Metric is 1)
lo which is the loopback
then I get after connected with wvdial also
ppp0 link encap point-to-point protocol
inet addr: 83.xx.xx.xx p-to-p: 10.xx.xx.xx mask: 255.255.255.255
up pointopoint running noarp multicast mtu: 1500 metric: 1
then numbers regarding the rx and tx packets and bytes. Please note that if I issue a ping this numbers clearly increase (I believe it means packets correctly go out through the vodafone card).
and copy the output.
The result of route is:
10.xx.xx.xx (same ip addr as above) * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
default * 0.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 ppp0
it seems that the routes are through ppp0. They seem fine to me. What do you think?
the only thing is metric which is 0 (field after the flags field).
also tried to issue an apt-get update and it worked. So only browser cannot open web pages! Weird!
