Re: Checking internet connection without a winbox

I concatenate several of Les's emails in this message:

There is a checkbox in the network setup that controls whether
you use the dhcp-supplied DNS servers or not, but others have
mentioned a bug in it.

How do I launch that from the command line? I seem to have erased to
many things in cleaning up the Kmenu!

Did you try the 'dig' command to
test each of the addresses?  If they work but are slow,
you could improve things by installing the caching-nameserver

I will install the package anyway, but how do you define slow? 20 ms? 80 ms?

Are you 'behind' a university controlled network or directly
on the internet?  If someone else controls the network branch
there is some chance that you are behind a transparent proxy
that intercepts port 80 and tries to resolve requests from
a cache - and perhaps logs and filters what you are doing.  If
this is overloaded or mismanaged it can slow things down.

I'm on a commercial ISP, not the university. So far as I know, I'm
right there on the net. I don't think that there are any ports being
blocked, and I don't know of any filtering/logging going on. I'll ask.
I should know about this if it is happening.
