Internet connects but no access

Postby cyberbuff on Sun Jan 08, 2012 9:26 pm

Hello All!
Just installed Mint 11 (LMDE/XFCE). Been a long time Ubuntu user. I seem to connect to internet but I cannot access a single webpage. Ping and wget both fails. I am a BSNL Boradband user (India), using a router that requires a username and password to connect to internet. I used to configure my Ubuntu systems with "sudo pppoeconf". This time with Mint, I did the same (I guess everything is the same since it's based off Debian). While in Ubuntu, I used to say "yes" to automatically update /etc/resolv.conf but recently I read in Arch wiki that while using a router, resolv.conf should point to router's IP. So now my resolv.conf looks like:
Code: Select all
# Generated by NetworkManager
domain local.lan
search local.lan
nameserver 192.168.1.1

ifconfig -a shows me:
Code: Select all

and telnet 192.168.1.1 is:
Code: Select all

Connected to 192.168.1.1.
Escape character is '^]'.

                            Welcome to ISOS10.0-SR4

I also tried
Code: Select all
sudo route add default gw 192.168.1.1

But no luck: I can't access internet after this:
Code: Select all
sudo pon dsl-provider

Is there anything I am missing? Any help is much appreciated!
