Ok I tried like you said Kevin to do a traceroute on 220.127.116.11 wich is what ISP call "default gateway". It didn't work, the result looked like this :
1 * * * 2 * * * 3 * * * 4 * * * etc.... I wasn't patient enough for the fifth one! So I looked in resolv.conf and there was the IP of a DNS server : 18.104.22.168. I know this one works because I'm using it under windows currently. I decided to try this command : route add default 22.214.171.124 and maybe I was wrong, but I put this address also in the resolv.conf file before the other DNS entry. Then I rebooted and Traceroute and same results...... 1 * * * 2 * * * 3 * * * 4 * * * etc.... what do you think ? ----- Original Message ----- From: "Kevin D.
