Can you please explain it more clearly and in detail?  I use a Netgear DG632
modem/router with BSNL Dataone.  The router is configured to connect
automatically using my userID / password, and it assigns IP address
dynamically to my desktop.  Therefore, the network connection does not need
to have any configuration details.  Do I need to specify the DNS manually
for my default connection on eth0?

I had also tried disabling SELinux completely, but that didn't help.  Please
explain what you meant in your first two lines above.

Thanks in advance.
