I used synaptic to update/upgrade firefox. Now i can 't browse via Firefox or Konqueror.
I can ping router wirelessly.
I can use synaptic to update and install new packages.
Both wired and wireless internet browsing do not work.
Any idea of how to fix? Sort of a newbie.
Hi and welcome to the forum!
If you can update using synaptic, it means that the network subsystem is working OK.
You say you can ping the router, can you ping some external site ? i.e. www.google.com
Try to create a new user, log out and re login as new user: does Firefox work from the new user account ?
If yes there it could be some issue around your configuration files, if not it is a system wide issue.
Did you run aptupgrade in the past months (if required) ? http://www.pclinuxos.com/forum/index.php/topic,92661.0.html
