1  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / Re: [SOLVED] Firefox not accessing internet through bluetooth dialup on: February 20, 2011, 16:46:01 PM
The problem was solved by manually specifying DNS address (I use OpenDNS at present) in the KPPP account settings.

Due to some unknown reason, the automatic DNS settings were not being picked up.
2  Assistance / Pardus for beginners / [SOLVED] Firefox not accessing internet through bluetooth dialup on: February 18, 2011, 17:56:33 PM
I use an EDGE/GPRS connection through Nokia 6220Classic mobile phone using Bluetooth DialUp Networking while on the move.
I have an HP Mini 110 netbook.

I am able to ping ip addresses like open dns or google eg. 8.8.8.8 and get ping replies with some packet loss of less than 10%
But Firefox is not able to open websites and gets stuck at "Looking up...."

I have followed the following steps to connect:
Step 1 : Pair the mobile using BlueDevil
Step 2 : rfcomm bind rfcomm0 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx y
Step 3 : Run KPPP with appropriate settings for my cellular operator which is IDEA in India (the same settings which work for me on my PCLinuxOS installation on the same machine)

I have not used any custom IP/DNS settings. Everything is set to default/auto

Is the problem with DNS?
Or is it with the internet connection acquired through bluetooth not being recognised by the network manager or something?

NOTE: In the network manager while the Wifi and LAN tabs are accessible, the 3G/Mobile network tab is greyed out. Will this give a clue to understand solve the problem? (Under Linux Mint Debian Edition, this tab is accessible and I am able to connect there)

What other information would help solve this problem? Also please suggest any other standard measures I should try.

Just updating the post to indicate that I have recently installed Pardus 2011 and I am finding it even better than 2009. You guys are going to see me around I suppose this time.

I have been using PCLinuxOS for the past 3 years. I am happy with it.
Saw a very good review at http://cristalinux.blogspot.com/2010/06/final-review-pardus-20092.html
Did a spin of the installer in VirtualBox. Became very happy with the polish and attention to detail.
Hence have gone ahead and installed in a spare partition.
(Not yet been able to use it though - that is a different matter)
