I keep getting an error message from Firefox that reads Server not found. I have tried everything, proxy settings, DNS etc. It worked fine in Fedora 10. I recently downloaded 16 and that is when the problem started. Can anyone help me with this?

Can you try with some other browsers and let us that websites are opening in that or not ?

Can you run "nslookup www.google.com" from the terminal and tell us what it says?

are you able to load this website from an alternate computer or with fc10 on the computer ? This might be more of an issue with network ( settings), thanks with the browser.
