If you are using DHCP, you usually do not want to specify your name servers. (DNS1)First problem; my 'hosts' file backup was recovered. So I think that was what I had. Every manual and the file itself said don't touch this file. I touched it. Did I get it back to its original shape? I tried replacing 127.0.0.1 with 192.168.1.3 which 'ifconfig' and 'hostname -va' say is my inet addr. (Why it is not 192.168.1.1 is a question for another day). My ifcfg-eth0 script says: # nVidia Corporation MCP51 Ethernet Controller DEVICE=eth0 BOOTPROTO=dhcp HWADDR=00:1a:92:e5:dc:47 ONBOOT=yes DHCP_HOSTNAME=CASE NM_CONTROLLED=no TYPE=Ethernet DNS1=192.168.1.1 'route' also lists the default as 192.168.1.1 not xxx.xxx.x.3
Also, your default route should point to your gateway to the Internet. If you are using a firewall/router, it should point to that address.
You may also want to look at /etc/resolv.conf and see what name server(s) you have listed.
I don't remember if you said, gut is your problem that you can not connect using host names, but you can using IP addresses?
Also, is the network service running, or the NetworkManager service running? Because the way you have ifcfg-eth0, it does not look like NetworkManager is controlling it.
