Hello All,

This is not exactly a Fedora issue.But knowledgeable on linux can help me.

This REALLY should not be on a Fedora list. I feel strongly about the fact that you are using something that's not Fedora, but instead of asking the Live CD distro community for help, you come here. It is wrong.


Having said that, I'll give it a go.


I was trying a Live CD distro.I could set my ADSL connection on it fine.I can see with 'ifconfig' the link 'ppp0' and can ping to both local and remote IPs listed there.'pppd' is constantly running.

But I can't connect to internet,even as root.

I don't understand you. You say you can ping remote addresses, but you cannot connect to the Internet?


Pinging remote addresses is the same as pinging the Internet. If you can do it, you are connected as far as I am concerned.

I have checked through pppd
options and removed any settings that looked suspicious(rolled back). What
is standing between browser and kernel(network route)? How can I know?

If you can ping IP addresses, but not FQDNs on the Internet, then your DNS could be the culprit.

Ed.
