Angry Fedora Core 3 IP settings



hi, i'm using FC 3. I'm new to linux & am struggling, here's why:

i have an ADSL broadband connection & it works fine on windows XP. Does the IP setting in my windows O.S works same even on linux??

In the manual i came across this:

"For computers running non-Windows operating systems,
follow the instructions for your OS to configure the IP setting to occupy the same subnet as MT882 (the router)."

now where are these instructions & how do i configure the IP on my linux??

Its not that complex

Login to windows and get the information about IP address and subnet mask.

In FC3 type
netconfig

There enter the information you got from the windows PC.


This should make the broadband connection up and running.

Or
Use KMenu-> System Tools -> Internet Configuration Wizard

Hope this provides an easy interface for configuration

Cheers

thanx for your reply,
i have already done the Internet config wizard thing, but the IP (192.168.1.1) which is NOT static and the subnetmask (255.255.255.0) & also the default gateway(192.168.1.1) settings that i used in windows are not working on linux, i'm not being able to connect to the net.

You might want to recheck your settings; you show the IP address and the default gateway as being the same address (192.168.1.1) It won't work that way.

If your router is set up to supply addresses via DHCP, the easiest way to do it is to set up your Fedora box for DHCP, and let the router supply it with all that information (an IP address, the subnet mask and the default gateway).

Ok can you try this

In windows command prompt type
ipconfig /all

Get the IP address of the PC and the Gateway address along with the dns address .

If possible post the output in this thread.

See for any external IP address there

And this is the IP you have to use in linux

192.168.1.1 is not an external IP address

Cheers
