Question Can't Get Web Access In Red Hat


Ok, I haven't used Linux in a good couple of years, so I've forgotten everything.

What I do remember is that after a fresh install when I first got red hat, my machine connected to the internet without a problem. I have a Sony Vaio PCG-036 and when I looked up compatability issues for my hardware it said I was cool for the install.

Any I deas on what's going on? Linux has been on this machine before and working great. (Both Mandrake and Red Hat.) Before the format I had XP installed and the network jack was ok, so I know it's not a physical issue.

Also, once I get this resolved, how would I go about finding drivers for a wireless card?

Thanks in advance for any help that can be given!

-David

Hi and welcome to LQ.

Red Hat 9 is fairly old, I believe- perhaps the stuff I'll suggest won't work.
you are sure that your IP stuff is set up, all proxies and gateways (if any) set up?
wifi? I have heard that the new stable 2.6 kernel is more friendly to wifi.

hope this helps.

Yea, I gave up on it. I just aquired Mandriva 2006 last week and I'm determined to get it to work. I finally got my landline connection to work, but my wireless is still on the fritz. I used the wiki we have here to set up my wireless and I can see my wireless network, but I can't connect to the internet or ping my router or ping my machine in return. I have connected to the DHCP on my network because I have been assigned an IP address.

It's a step forward, but I'm still stuck. what good is having a wireless router if you cant go wireless? LOL.

If you're still around Titanium, I'd appreciate your help again!

Thanks!

I think the best way to get your question answered would be to start a new thread with a good title- maybe in the wireless forum.

hope this helps!
