Hi, I've got a SL4 running familiar 0.8.4 on it.
I'm using a Siemens I-Gate PCMCA wlan pcmcia device (eth0)
My Problem is that I can ping IP's and the simpad itself but I can't ping host names for example "google.com". If I try I'm getting "host name lookup failure" in the console.

My /var/run/resolv.conf looks as following:
nameserver <DNS-server IP>

and in /etc there's a symlink to resolv.conf but host name resolving still does not work.

Does anybody know why/is this i known problem maybe?

thx, T3X

you can try to use another name server entry in your /etc/resolf.conf e.g
I am myself have some problems with my routers dns server forwarding.
