No, it's not. Watch his last test: ping 22.214.171.124
did not return any answers, but actually it should return something. To verify try to ping some more IPs:ping 126.96.36.199ping 188.8.131.52
(I'm the admin of this one and I know it always responds to ping requests)ping 184.108.40.206
However it's a good idea to check your DNS settings:
1. Connect with pppoe-start
2. Check if ppp0 is there: ifconfig ppp0
3. Check if /etc/resolv.conf is a link to /etc/ppp/resolv.conf: ls -l /etc/resolv.conf
4. If it is a link, post the output of cat /etc/ppp/resolv.conf
. If it is no link, please post the output of cat /etc/ppp/resolv.conf
On one of the last posts you've said:
- Code: Select all
bash-4.1$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by dhcpcd from eth0
# /etc/resolv.conf.head can replace this line
# /etc/resolv.conf.tail can replace this line
That's strange. It seems you are using a DHCP server, that run's on some kind of router and I guess here is your problem:
Why are you trying to use a DSL modem if you have a router?
Why doesn't the router provide an internet connection?
Please also post the output of route -n
