Accessing the internet...
I'm running Slackware 10.0, and just recently reconfigured my network.
I've changed the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway of my Linux box to work with the new network.
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1 (The router)
These settings are identical to my Windows computers, with the exception of IP address, and can connect to the internet fine.
I can ping other computers on the network, including the router, and can also access the web control pnel of the router via the linux box.
But pinging any computer or website on the internet side of the router just fails with an "Unknown Host" message.
Should also point out that I had no problems at all accessing the internet before these network changes.
I have tried changing the settings in 'netconfig' to use my routers DHCP server instead of using a static IP. This hasn't helped, and it is not listed in the router 'DHCP Clients' list, along with my other computers.
