Unable to connect to the internet
I purchased a new Dell Dimension 9100 a few days ago, removed Windows and
installed Mandriva 2005 LE. Everything installed o.k. but the network connection and the sound card. The network card is an IEEE1394 IPv4 (IPv4 -over 1394or per RFC2734). It is connected to a Linksys router which in turn is connected to a
cable modem (Roadrunner). Protocol is automatic DHCP . In the setup I checked
Auto IP( Bootp/DHCP), Assign hostnamefrom DHCP address, Network hotplugging,Network device eth0 ( driver eth 1394), no hostname, and No zeroconf host name.
One other thing that might be important is that this computer also has an Creative Labs Audigy sound card installed and it has a IEEE1394 port.
Anyone who has any information that would help get this problem solved would
be appreciated. I have tried some solutions i saw posted under Google but none othem worked.
