your posts are confusing ...you say you have internet and you say you dont at the same time.
can you list programs that can go online and programs that cant? what browser do you use?
Yes I have internet.
Synaptic can not go online.
Gpodder can not go online.
I use Chromium, but that has nothing to do with my problem.
I can surf and download stuff from the web no problem.
Also I just bypassed the router, and plugged the DSL modem directly into the PC, and the same problem, so it's not a router setting that needs to be changed.
Could it be that the PCLOS servers are blocking me because I have a different IP adress now then before?
But then it still wouldn't explain why my podcatcher wont connect.
