What kind of network are you trying to create.. can you please provide us the topology or is it that you are just trying to connect to the internet?

dsl modem

8 port switch

just trying to get this one system to connect to the internet.
its a new install of mandriva 2011

all my other systems on my home lan connect ok

after thought:
I think I need to set it up to a eather0 connection, not ppp

never used mandrava before.
