Add to "/etc/resolv.conf"

domainname       "yourdomainname"
nameserver       "yourDNSserverIP"

Firefox nor any other application that uses hostnames will encounter
your error because they can't resolve domain names

Subject: Server Not Found Error Message

I am connecting wireless to a network called "conferences".  I do
an IP address, Broadcast address, Primary and secondary DNS.  When

typing ifconfig, I can see ath0 and wifi0 and there is activity.
when I go to Firefox it says: Server not found

I was given the website address for authentication which I typed at

System -> Preferences -> Network Proxy.

Any help
