connecting to internet through a router to cable modem
This is bound to be a simple question and I feel simple for asking but:
I have a LAN which includes a Linux (Slackware 11) system and a Windoz (XP) system connected through a router. Yesterday I got cable internet so the cable modem is hooked into the WAN side if the router. The Windows sytem works fine, browses internet without a problem. But the Linux system can't. I have tried various proxy settingd on the browsers and it changes the problem but doesn't fix it. What do I need to do to Slackware to get it working with the router for internet access? Local access works fine for http, telnet, samba, &c., but Linux can't find remote URLs. Maybe a DNS problem? They didn't give me any DNS server info, so I am confused about that but, like I said, Windoz is working fine. What am I missing?
