Connect to internet Wired


I just installed PCLinusOS. Its my first linus operating system. I installed it on my laptop a Compaq Presario.

First I am hooked up through a cable to the Pcmcia card which is a Simens Speedstream 1012.

I cannot connect to the internet. Can someone tell me what I have to do?

Thanks,
Irv

When you say your using a Seimens Speedstream 1012 (pcmcia ethernet card) then i'm guessing you've also got a broadband router of some description as well.

- I'm also guessing that this is a dual boot configuration in which case does windows connect successfully to the internet?
- Have you checked that the card is working?
- Are any transmit and recieve lights flickering on the card or the router?
- Does PClinuxOS correctly detect and configure the card?
- Have you entered the IP address of your router into the gateway and dns settings of the network adapter?

Correct.

No it is not. It is set up as the main system on my laptop. With Windows on the system it worked fine.

The route is fine. There are no light flickering on the card.
Does PClinuxOS correctly detect and configure the card?
How do I know this?

How do I do this?

Thanks Irv
