Ok, so I can't connect to the internet on my Slack 12.1 install, and I've added in the details in the rc.inet1.conf, which now looks like:
# Config information for eth0:
# Default gateway IP adress:
Ok, I had to manually input these myself. After that I did a /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart, and then I get this:
Polling for DHCP server on interface eth0:
No carrier detected on eth0. Reducing DHCP timeout to 10 seconds.
dhcpcd: MAC address = 00:1e:8c:6d:0e:4a
I cannot figure out what's wrong... >.>
So I went to my routers page, and then I looked at the status:
Firmware Version: v1.52.0, Jan. 16, 2007
Current Time: Tue, Nov 11 2008 18:41:33
MAC Address: 00:18:39:CB:9C:C2
Router Name: WRT54GS
Domain Name: hsd1.tn.comcast.net
Login Type: Automatic Configuration - DHCP
IP Address: lol.im.not.that.stupid :P
Subnet Mask: 255.255.248.0
DNS 1: 188.8.131.52
DNS 2: 184.108.40.206
DNS 3: 220.127.116.11
As you can see, my router doesn't have an assigned host name.
Even after changing my subnet mask and default gateway in the rc.inet1.conf file to what's shown on my router, I get the same error.
The internal IP address is the same one (last time I checked) as the one that's on my WORKING Vista drive. Would the IP address I assigned make a difference whether or not that's the correct IP address for the machine?
Otherwise, help!!! Please?
