How do i connect to www? (get connected to network)


I have finally arrived to WindowMaker desktop, but when i selected to connect to the internet using Opera, nada.

So, chance for me to learn smthg new again. How do i connect to the www from Amigo?

I have a linksys cable modem connected to a 4-port linksys router. This frankenbox is connected, and i can get connect when in window$, but not while running amigo. Any idears?

I used netconfig and it seemed to go through ok, but still no internet.

My ethernet card is ISA (linksys nc100) and I see amigo recognize it at boot.
I am also on a linksys router and have all ports from 1000 to 15000 forwarded for tcp and udp.

Should I not?

I cant figure what I'm doing wrong.

kbtab
printer
uhci
ntfs
usbkbd
usbmouse
keybdev
mousedev
hid
input
usbcore

all unused except mousedev and the last 2 (which list everything else above them in brackets)

did i leave out a boot option or something..maybe?


[edit: I also removed the port fwding for that machine on the router in case it was confusing things.]

Seems that way...though it shows up in beginning of the booting text - before the part where it detects and names the drives and such.

It is an ISA card, but it's a fairly common one..I think.. (Linksys nc100).
Then, in the netconfig process, it tells me "settings accepted".. I dont know if it does that regardless of finding a card or not.

Should it give me any indication?

What does the output of ifconfig look like? The linksys router is a dhcp server, so you usually use one of the dhcp clients. There should be an ip address assigned to eth0, and the gateway should be 192,168.1.1.

It is possible to assign a static address to the interface such as 192.168.1.50, but if you want to do this, you might want to first set it up using dhcp in order to obtain the DNS address.

One alternative is to point your brower to 192.168.1.1 and look in the WAN tab for the information that the router obtained from the Cable Modem <-> Router exchange.

Under the DHCP clients tab, you can see if your host name shows up in the clients table.

Look in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and see if there is a line for your network card module. if so uncomment it. this will load the module at boot time. Then run ifconfig

It's an ne2000 chip on IRQ 5

I tried all of the ne2000 module lines but none worked.

Even tried changing the adress on one of em to 240 (windows device mgr shows as the address for IRQ 5: 0240-025F).

*gasping with exasperation*

Since it's an ISA card you need to install the isapnptools package and configure the port there first.

sigh...my noobness is tripping me up again..

I got isapnptools for slack 9.1
I unpacked it.
Now I have a few folders (usr, sbin, etc, install)
sbin has a cpl binaries in it, but I dont know how to configure/compile/install them (if such a thing is even needed).

tried reading the faq but it, but there are no clear (noob-friendly) instructions on what I should do. they seem to be written for vets.

Is there no ./configure, make, and make install needed?
Is there a certain command I need to know?

as root use pkgtool on the directoryt where you have the original (packed) package, then select install packages from current directory and it will install the package.

ok pkgtool runs but wont install it. however, i was able to install with the installpkg command.

after hours of trying to configure isapnp, i got it to accept my card - BUT, no modules work with it (its an NE2000 but it shows at boot as an AXE2201...whatever that is).

Im thinkin maybe this distro justy dont have a driver for that card.

(and my desk is getting a forehead shaped dent in it. )

Okay, make sure are you doing this as root.
Instead of 'pkgtool' use installpkg itself.
Go to the dir where the package is and type:
installpkg packagename.tgz

This is how I install packages, but I use pkgtool to remove them.
