I am running a full installation of Backtrack 5 R3 on my computer (no VM) and have a working ethernet connection to the local network. I am able to access the intranet sites, but cannot access the internet. How can I go about fixing this? I can provide more information easily.

As a side note, the local network requires a SonicWall login for access to the internet. I can login fine, but could Sonicwall be causing the problem?

Yes, please provide more information. IE: Can you expand on "cannot access the Internet"? Like, can you ping by IP? Can you ping by name? Can you reach your Internet gateway? If you do an nslookup for an Internet domain name, does it resolve correctly? Have you discussed your situation with the admin of the Sonicwall? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Jun 3 '13 at 18:21
@techie007 Ping by both IP and name works and nslookup works fine. I ran the pings and nslookup on Google and Yahoo and got back working IPs for both. – Alex Mundy Jun 5 '13 at 15:50
@techie007 Talked to the local admin. He has no idea, not a Linux guy. – Alex Mundy Jun 11 '13 at 13:19
