Re: Pathetic wireless internet

yeah it looks like the attributes have changed:
Code:
[root@parth ~]# ls -alZ /etc/resolv.conf
-rw-r--r--. root root unconfined_u:object_r:etc_t:s0   /etc/resolv.conf
But it's giving me this:
Code:
[root@parth ~]# restorcon -v /etc/resolv.conf
bash: restorcon: command not found...
I didn't realize about doing it from the net manager. Thanks a lot RHamel and BBQdave for all the help.

The internet is working relatively fantastic. There are a few glitches, I really don't know if I ever will be able to use flawless internet in fedora or linux in gen..

Still i think its not resetting the file semanage
Code:
[root@parth ~]# restorecon -v /etc/resolv.conf
[root@parth ~]# ls -alZ /etc/resolv.conf
-rw-r--r--. root root unconfined_u:object_r:net_conf_t:s0 /etc/resolv.conf

Re: Pathetic wireless internet

That worked! Can you please give a bit of details as to what those commands did, a general explanation would be appreciated.

I'm marking this thread as solved \m/

Re: Pathetic wireless internet

So first off, DNS is not created equal. What's going on at home, and your school is that they are not conforming to the spec. The people in charge would say it's an enhancement, and all that Redhat would have to do is licence the technology for a small fee, and they could include the enhancement in their code. The truth is that the only real enhancement is to make life difficult for those who are not using the proprietary products. You can bypass this by pointing at Google's DNS instead, which you did.

Next, you are using Selinux, which is a security feature. It's all about the contexts. The user id's have a context, which you can display with
Code:
id -Z
And files have a context. You can change a files context when you edit it. That's what happened here. Then you changed it back with chcon (change context command).

Re: Pathetic wireless internet

In one of the replies I was suggested that i try to emulate the same settings from win7 in linux..
ifconfig is the command that will give me all the relevant information right?

The command to get the IP interface info from Win7 is:
Quote:
ipconfig /all
Note the "ip" at the front is different from 'if' (the linux command is ifconfig, under windows it's ipconfig )
