[Techtalk] Connectivity Conundrum

Hi there,

I'd really appreciate some help with this one!

I've got a Netgear DSL DG814 router with a Windows box and a Linux box connected
to it. The Windows box can see the world just fine (hence this email:-)

However, my Linux box seems not to be able to get out at all.

The Linux box has correctly got its IP address on startup and I can ping the
router successfully. So the communication between router and my machine seems fine.

The configuration of Thunderbird and Firefox hasn't changed.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance and cheers,
