Greetings, Before getting InsightBB I ran through a similar thread from Aug 2003 on this list. I live in Champaign IL and got InsightBB. I have a linksys router to which I have connected two laptops. One is Windoze 2000 (which was used for registration and whose MAC address I cloned on the router). The other is a dual-boot Windoze2000 and linux. I installed InsightBB software on both laptops (on windoze side on the dual boot one). From Windoze side both work fine. I use Mozilla on Windoze side for web browsing but the one-time registration was done using IE. The problem is when I am in linux mode. First, I coould not view any webpage from the linux side. I would get a message saying that I need to register my PC and when I followed the link, it said that I am already registered. When I tried pinging www.google.com, ping returned from www.google.com.***.insightbb.com. I remembered the mention of the DNS issue so I replaced their nameservers from /etc/resolv.conf with University of Illinois nameservers. Now I could get to quite a few sites but not to www.uiuc.edu or www.google.com or mail.yahoo.com. I looked at Mozilla's configuration on the Windoze side and it is not using any proxy. It is somewhat critical for me to get to uiuc.edu websites from linux side. Is there a way out or should I dump InsightBB and go with Yahoo DSL which seems to be available here? I have read a few reviews on the web of SBC/Yahoo DSL and they claim that in Champaign it is slower than dial-up! Anybody can comment on that?
