Unhappy Configuring Ethernet card in BackTrack (slax)


as 4 days are left in the release of ubuntu to be downloaded i was thinking to try some live cd.I am using BackTrack 2 based on slax live cd but can not configure my network card .I have two net work card's
Intel(R) PRO/100+ Management Adapter for Connecting to Internet this card is detected by BackTrack but i do not know how to config it i mean i want to change it's ip address to 10.10.10.2x,i want to change default getway to 10.10.10.10,i want to change it's subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 and i want to change DNS server to 202.133.44.x
This is the setting which my isp has told me to use



Intel(R) PRO/100 VE Network Connection: This card is not detected by BackTrack2 how do i config it




BackTrack2 is a pentest linux and can be downloaded for free from www.remote-exploit.org

I must admit that I haven't used Backtrack for a long time. Do you have 255 different DNS-servers to use? You would need a more spesific IP-adress, unless you are hiding the rest for us. Anyway, add "nameserver 202.133.44.x" to /etc/resolv.conf

Then start your network-card with: ifconfig eth0 10.10.10.2x netmask 255.255.255.0
Then add your gateway with: route add default gw 10.10.10.10

I'm not quite sure about gateway. I've never had to use it.

I did this but when i tried to ping 10.10.10.9 (other computer always online) it gave me response something like "destination unreachable"
When i tried to ping google.com it says something google host not found

first check you self ping

ping 10.10.10.21

if that succeeds then there is no problem in NIC.

check the network cable.

Have you tried using "netconfig"? Since this is a slackware based livecd.
