Re: Help: No internet connection

No difference with or without firewall. But I discovered something else:

Here's what happens:
- I start my computer and connect to the wireless: Firefox and Thunderbird can not connect to the wireless but Opera can.
- I plug in the Ethernet cable. Now all connections work, with or without firewall.
- I deconnect the cable and connect again through the wireless. Now both programs do connect properly.


Sounds like a DNS problem again.

Yes! Your firewall could be , the issue here..


The only thing I can think of suggesting is, have you looked at your firewall configuration ?

Well, since I can surf the web with Opera and use Skype but not Firefox, Evolution and Thuderbird, the connection between the computer and my wireless ADSL modem as well as between the modem and the web work. I just don't understand why some applications can't connect. But I agree that it probably is linked to the configuration of the modem. I hope that I'll find time this evening to work more on it.

Also to mention: Connection through cable works perfect. It's just the wireless that blocs some connections.

To add to that, if you add a router, a computer and the Mac# changes some of these Internet Modems have to be reset to reconize the new Mac# from a added
