About connecting myself to the n/w
Can someone help me...
I am a novice to linux...
I am having windows XP and Fedora 2 installed.
I also have an internet connection provided by sify via a 10mbps lan connection through a cat5 cable.
If i select FC2 from Grub and boot up and :
>> I ping to my gateway from terminal.
>> Reply: Destination Host Unreachable
If I select windowsXP and:
>> Reach the login page
(I DO NOT HAVE LOGIN TO THE WINDOWS System)
>> Reboot from here itself.
>> Again boot FC2.
Now I AM ABLE to ping to my gateway positively.
Y does this happen, that i have to atleast reach the windowsXP login page so that i can connect to the n/w through FC2 on the subsequent Boot?
I need a solution because i want to get rid of winXP!
Thanks a lot..to whomsoever helps me!!
Please could you give a clear explanation of how the network is laid out. I am not sure whether you are talking about multiple boxes or a single dual boot box here. You need to show the connections from the isp ->?router ->? and also the kind of networking provided by the isp. We have seen some examples from Asia where the isp is issuing private addresses to their users.
about the same
well i don't exactly know about how my n/w is laid out .... but will soon let you know about it
But this is a dual boot system.
At present i can only tell you about how i configured my n/w connection:
I just had to create an ethernet connection and specify my private IP ... no DHCP!
Also i had to specify a gateway IP and DNS servers' IP
Now Sify has provided me with an executable with which i can connect to their SAM server.
I guess this won't have to do anything with my n/w configuration....Maybe...i'm not sure...
But i guess it has got to do something with windows .... in other words windows is able to successfully connect and linux at first boot is not....
I don't know how to explain this...but i'll try
Basically i asked this to someone from IIT, he says that windows is fiddling with my BIOS....but then if so, how am i able to connect with when i reboot from windows.
Now if i turn my m/c off for abt 1/2 a day and i directly boot linux.....here i am unable to connect
So what i do is ... reboot and startup winXP...i reach the login pg and i reboot from here!! i don't login to winXP....!
Now when i boot FC2 i AM ABLE TO CONNECT...!!! This is very wierd!!!!
This means whenever i want to use my n/w in Linux i have to go to windows atleast once!!!!
I hope this wd give you somewhat an idea of what i am facing!!
Well sooner or later i will surely provide you with my n/w arch!!
Thanks a lot!
