Hi, i'd just installing Ubuntu version 6.06, somehow i found that i could not browse using the Firefox provided.
Before this i'd also installing Ubuntu, but theres nothing problem. None hardware change with my pc, except now im using new adsl modem router, which indicating ADSL2..its new actually.
I thought maybe my ISP problem, but when i switched to Windows, all are going fine. I've read some
threads on the net that says it might cause of the system look to ipv6 before ipv4..i'd tried the solution by:

$ #sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/bad_list

Add this line
alias net-pf-10 off



But still cant browse to the internet. For ur info, "ping" is succesful to "www.google.com"

Please help!! a.s.a.p

Thanks

The ping is successful in Windows or Ubuntu?

If ping is successful, then you are connected to the internet. Which means the problem is probably either a fouled up install of Firefox or you need to adjust settings in your network monitor or modem.

To check the modems settings, it should be at http://192.169.1.1

The easiest way to check the network settings is to right click on the task bar >add launcher. a list with icons will come up. You're looking for the network monitor (it looks like 2 small wide screen monitors (usually brown) much like the windows one, but more charming). ad that to the task bar then double click it. It should show a list of possible connections. Click the one which is appropriate and check it's settings.

Have you installed a firewall? If so, what settings is it at? Some firewalls install at default high security level, which could prevent a lot of things from happening in your browser but come up with information that says you are connected to the internet.

Also, are you connected to your modem by ethernet card or USB or some other device?

Have you tried any other web browsers? I don't know what else Ubuntu comes with aside from Firefox, but maybe a different browser would do the trick.

I just saw this. You said you were using a new ADSL modem/router. Is it configured for your ISP? Have you tried resetting it? Is there a modem before the router?
