Why I can't using my normal connection but when I using tor network it working? I'm using mobile broadband (ppp). I tried to use terminal and try to ping www.google.com but the result:

mrahimi@CQ40:~$ ping www.google.com

ping: unknown host www.google.com

Does my ISP banned me or something else?

I have disable my ufw firewall but still the same..

I using this command in terminal : cat /etc/resolv.conf

The result :# Generated by NetworkManager

I had tried using the network proxy (using chrome) and the internet work normally but when I using the normal connections it turn the same again (no connections)? Why does it mean I had been banned by my ISP?

Looks more like a DNS or firewall problem. What is the output of cat /etc/resolv.conf and are you running a firewall ? –  bodhi.zazen Dec 22 '11 at 20:31

You need to configure DNS . Usually your DNS is provided by your router ( ? )

Try using the google dns servers and (set them in network manager) code.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using.html –  bodhi.zazen Dec 22 '11 at 21:39
Can know why this happen? If you don't mind? –  fly_high_hahaha Dec 22 '11 at 22:01
I am not sure, unless you manually configured your connection, something about your mobile broadband setting an IP abut not a DNS. I do not have the hardware / IP provider to test. Perhaps someone else will know and we can both learn. –  bodhi.zazen Dec 22 '11 at 22:08
