    Problem with the internet...

    Having a problem with the internet using Ethernet. When I check out status of the ethernet interface using ifconfig and ifconfig eth1 it shows the interface has an ip... submask.. default gateway.. the whole works. I can ping another computer. Now when I try to ping a website such as google or cnn it says unknown host. I'm guessing the problem relates to the host.conf file but not sure how to correct.

    Not sure if host.conf is the culprit there, can you post /etc/resolv.conf instead

    markus@fujibox:~$ cat /etc/host.conf
    order hosts,bind
    multi on

    markus@fujibox:~$ cat /etc/resolv.conf

    markus@fujibox:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
    # /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(, ifdown(
    # The loopback interface
    # automatically added when upgrading
    auto lo eth0
    iface lo inet loopback
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
