I just installed Fedora, and I can see my web server and ip camera locally, but I can't go to any outside addresses.

The same thing happened with ubuntu. I made sure it's set to DHCP, any ideas???

There are many many things that could cause this. For starters, have you set up your firewall to permit external connections to this server machine?

I have access to the resources on the server and can see all the local devices, including a web camera.....everything is connected to the same switch. But I can't go to any external address that I've tried so far. "error loading page" or something pops up. I've installed ubuntu ~5 times and have never had this problem before, but on this machine, both ubuntu and fedora have had the same problem.

Hey, please post the output of ifconfig and cat /etc/resolv and route -n please.

I'd disconnected the network cable in the images before...not sure if it matters. Here are the results with it reconnected:

For your IP camera, I think issue happen due to incompatibility. To make your IP HD security cameras compatible with Fedora you need to install anew latest software.
