Lan setup/configure


Help! I'm using Linux 10.0 Community and I can't configure my system to get the IP address from my router (which is configured as a DHCP Server). My system sees the 3COM ethernet NIC, but I just can't configure to see the DHCP server to get the IP address. I'm very new to Linux so I need help. Thanks!

try using "pump" you have to run it as root, though. it picks an IP from DHCP. alternatively, try
#ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.100
#add default gw 192.168.1.1

the IP addresses are just an example for a LAN. IF needed make the modifications in the above IPs.

It's no go. I tried all I can putting IP addresses statically, try DHCP, assign all DNS IPs, and all I know. It's stilll not working. I'm not having much luck with Linux.
