Oh, I know how to make that happen.  Just put the dsl or router's
configuration address in the /etc/resolv.conf file as the search domain
and clear out the servers in that file.  Could be your router or modem was
told by your provider or manufacturer that it needs a firmware update.
Another possibility may be a malware.  If the second is the case try
downloading the dban iso file with another computer and burning it on a cd
that can be burnt only once.  When you put the cd in, a boot: prompt comes
up so type autonuke <cr> and if you have a 300GB hard drive expect dban to
take a day to restore it to the state it was in before the first operating
system was put on it.  http://dban.sf.net is the url.  A guess on my part
is will get you to your modem or router manufacturer's web
page for configuration.  If you had to use another address to do this, try
it.  If it doesn't work, you got a malware and need dban.  You if you're
using a dsl modem also need something like a westel 227W set up correctly
so when you check with grc.com's shields up you're told you're truely

I am getting a really crazy situation now...
1. when i reboot the server, i can not ping to anyone.
2. when i go to the gui -opendesktop --and i click on the network applete, and deactivate the adapter and activate ---I am able to ping on my local network.
3. i can not ping past the my default gateway ---i double checked the default gateway settings they are correct standard
4. i have the info in resolv.conf...i can not get out to the dns servers that are past my router.
very strange..and bizare affects..anyone can help..would appriciate it.
