Lan connection crapped with Windows XP as Internet Gateway
Can anyone help? I installed Mandrake Linux v10.0 community distribution on my laptop with the profile as follow.
I830 Graphic Chipset
Realtek 8139 Ethernet Interface Card
I can't get an IP from my Windows XP Desktop running Internect Connection Sharing.
Thus, I set the static IP but it just prompt up saying the IP is not in correct format. (192.168.0.7) Hence I do it in console:
ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.6 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
And I do ifconfig and got this:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:E0:18:7D:17:3E
inet addr: 192.168.0.6 Bcast 192.168.0.255 Mask: 255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::2e0::18ff:fe7d:173e/64 Scope: Link

RX bytes: 228402 (233.0kb) TX bytes: 15004 (14.6Kb)

But stil, I cant get the browser to browse any website. And when I get into the Mandrake control center, in the "Monitor connections", it just say "Not connected". How can I configure it so it can surf the internet properly? or it doesnt support windows xp as an internet gateway?
