I'm trying to connect to the internet with RedHat AS3 via a router but have'nt a clue as to how to do it. I am already connected with a Windows XP machine but just can't seem to figure out how to set up RedHat to do the same.
Current routing table settings as seen from my Windows PC are as follows
I guess you are right it is a BT Voyager, and for some reason BT give Router Manager as a piece of software, which is where I got the information above from.
Do you have any clues as to how I can get connected? Thanks for replying so soon.
oh right. well so that's a 4 port job with a shitty usb port on it, explains a lot i guess. so... drop the usb side for a start. you don't need *ANY* of the software they provide whatsoever, just plug into the box with an ethernet connection and configure it by going to http://192.168.1.1 it's so simple it's unreal and has nothing to do with the computers using it. usb is just annoying and over complicated.
I am using ethernet (never USB)! The 2091 is plugged into a hub. The PC can connect but not the Linux server. Do you have any more detailed setup info i.e. what do I set up on the Linux side and how do I do it. Remember I am new to this.
I think you can connect to that router in 3 modes/ via ethernet straight cable/ via USB & last but not least via wireless communication/
I myself would prefer it configuring via a ethernet connection & as chris aready suggested that you got to open 192.168.1.1 in your browser.. & if you are still not getting any login/configuration screen while browsing.. you should go back & ping this ip for a test. If you can ping; you should be also able to browse.. & if you cant ping i think you have got some problems in your routing tables. Check back with "route -n".
i've never seen any voyager devices being recommended as bridging routers, which i suppose is what you have effectively got the router configured as. this may well be from ignorance though.. our bt routers are configured as standard routers by default, wit all pppoa action being done solely by the router, not the computers at all. i would personally hit the reset button on the router, uninstall the software, and go to the url above and get the router logging in itself directly. then it's just bog standard dhcp enabled lan for any client to make use of.
