As a new bie of Linux, I met a strange problem. I have dual OS. One is Mandrake9.1 another is window2000. When I finishing Mandrake installation, everything seems fine. but strange thing happens when I start to listen music. The internet connection is disconnected for some reason. : (
Then, I start to use autodetection to reconfigure my network setting, however, ifconfig telles me that it doesn't work. So I reconfigure the network mannually, I configure everything, from IP address to DNS server address, but I still can not use browser to browse, all I can do is I need to enter the site IP address so that I can browse.
By any chance all you expertees can tell me what's going on here please?
Well thats just plain strange if you ask me. So your saying that when you play music your network connection goes down. hmmm....try running whatever you use to play music from a shell and maybe it will give you some output that could help you see whats going on here. You may also want to check your log files as well.
I'd like to thank you Crashed-Again for your valuable time and help. It does happen without changing any settings.
I have try to run ifconfig and route after manually reconfigure my network settings. Everything seems fine. However, I can not ping my gateway server, even I can see my neighborhood. When I use browse engine, when I type in IP address I can reach our school website, however, when I use http, it does't work. I have checked the status, it shows the protocol I am using is static, but when I change to dhcp, the assigned ip address is not right anyway.
I'm curious as to what you mean when you say the IP isn't right... At any rate, static should work just fine. Just go to /etc/resolv.conf, and edit it using emacs, kwrite, whatever. Add your DNS servers, which you can see in Windows if you run ipconfig from the command prompt, or just using run. Add those, and your 'net should be up.
