F11: network connected but firefox cannot find server

view full story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi, I am entirely new to linux. I have recently installed F11 on my IBM thinkpad R52 laptop from the live CD. I tried looking around, but didn't find anything that looked like my problem. Simply put, firefox can only browse to some of the basic fedora website pages (probably cached). I can successfully ping www.google.com, but firefox says it cannot find it when I try to browse there. network manager confirms a strong connection to my wireless network, and I have already tried disabling the proxy settings without any luck. When I tried booting it to take another look before posting, fedora also successfully connected to the internet and updated. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me. (HowTos)
