Full Version: Fedora 10: Wireless Problem, connected to router but unable to use
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
MrBigRich
Hi I'm a first time user of Linux, started today thanks to a Fedora 10 dual boot installation. Using Vista Ultimate and EasyBcd to boot. Installation of Fedora was seamless, wireless network adapter (onboard motherboard) detected and no error messages recieved. The network bit in top corner of screen informs me that it is connected to my router, BUT, I am unable to ping the router or access the internet. I reboot into windows and it works fine, thus I am able to come ask for expert help.

Current details (Assigned by router):
IP. 10.0.0.13
Subnet. 255.0.0.0
Default Gateway. 10.0.0.2

I am a complete novice and have no idea about the terminal or it's commands, but these are the current details I have:
