Daryna firefox won't connect to website

Postby delanov » Sun Aug 24, 2008 3:42 pm

I followed the MintWifi Wiki and got the wifi connected with an IP. The two computers and a verticle green bar shows in the tray. But firefox won't connect to any website. Is there a simple reason why firefox won't connect. I have a lot more detail on the USB Adapter.

Are you connected to the internet, and not just your own LAN?
Try to ping something - like an OpenDNS server

Code: Select all

ping 208.67.222.222

If you get a response it's a problem with name resolution and a solution is found here

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Well that's impossible when it comes to wifi
Do you use a "hot spot"?
Please tell us which dongle you use - the chipset is the most important fact
You could get that from

Code: Select all

sudo lsusb -v
