I'm new to linux, and have just managed to dualboot linux and W2K on my PC.. My next question is how to access the internet from linux.(ADSL) Im behind a router. I have only one network card. Do I need one for each operative system? (Is it so that windows claims the property of the only network-card for its connection?).
Is it possible to "obtain ip-address automatically" as in windows? My router is also a DHCP server.
Linux does not recognice the device etc0, so it could be the network card is incompatible(?)
With my ISP packet I got a modem, password and a username.
I have tried the command "/usr/sbin/adsl-setup" but with no luck. I get the "Timed out" message...
The PPPoE utilites seems to be installed and ok. (PPPoe is required for this ADSL pack)
The DHCP server (router) is set to pick addresses between 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.10. The default gateway is 192.168.1.254. (I know these are internal addresses and not existing outside the router). My hope/believe is that linux will find its way to obtain one of these listes ip's and access the internet.
Where and how do I set up linux to access internet??
Linux is really hard to understand, but i'm dying to get good at this
Thanks for answers...
