from a friend :
I installed my network drivers and was able to successfully ping various websites through the terminal. However, firefox and gaim were not able to connect after i installed them. a friend had me install Links and consequently, Links will connect to any website just fine. so i re-opened firefox and went to google, which actually worked. the strange thing is that i can run a search from google but once i click the google search result links, nothing happens.
so in short:
-pinging works in terminal
-google home page and search results pages load successfully
-everything else times out.
does he have a proxy set in the browser settings?
Do other GUI browsers work?

What does it mean nothing happen?
Does the navigator start to do something (in firefox in the upper right corner there is a round dot line that is animating when firefox load someting)?
Does firefox give some error message, or the page became blank?
Did you try to ping one on the site that does not work and see the result.
Please post one of the address that does not work.
192.168.0.* is a local address, is your router acting like a DNS server or something? I guesst hat DHCP is messing with your resolv.conf, are you using that? If so, then try changing the DNS server in your router to one that works, or somehow tell DHCP to not overwrite resolv.conf.
