Hey. I've recently completed installing Slackware 10.2 onto a rather old box (433MHz, unsure of RAM). All has run smoothly until I tried to access the internet.
I trawled through many an attempted solution here at linuxquestions and have tried to solve it myself, but so far I have had no success.
It's running Slackware 10.2, connected to an existing network (with a computer already running slackware happily on the internet) via a DI-704UP broadband router (IP 192.168.0.1). This router supports DHCP (and is itself a DHCP server).
I can ssh to and from the box within the network, and samba is currently running without a hitch. But when I try to use a browser and get on the net, I am unable to.
I tried pinging google.com, and recieved the following message
ping: unknown host www.google.com
So, thinking it may be a DNS problem or something, I pinged an external IP: 126.96.36.199 (unsure of what it is, it was an attempted solution to a different problem). This worked fine, so I'm thinking it may be a DNS problem, but it didn't occur with my previous slackware box.
The box in question was previously running 98 and resided on the network.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
