Post Internet locks when I activate it


I just intstalled a fresh warm copy of Mandrake 9.2. Install works perfectly, mandrake starts booting, and I get to bringing up connection eth0, where it waits for 3-4 minutes, then gives me the FAILED message.

When I attempt to configure my internet connection with the Mandrake Control Center config tool, it says my internet is down. I bring up the box with the IP Address and stuff in it, and hit Activate, and it just locks for about 3-4 minutes, when it times out. The connection stays down. I am using DHCP.

Worth noting: on this same computer I have windows installed, and internet works there, so the router/cable's not the problem.

Well it is not easy... or common, but if you send more information about your modem, could be easier to help you.

May be another useful information too
