Connecting to the Internet in Slackware 9.1
okay, I'm connectng through a LAN, at home I'm using a Linksys router that you can plug into or use wirelessly. It receives internet from a DSL modem. I'm pretty sure I have a dynamic IP address from my ISP. At school I'm merely plugged into the dorm's LAN.
So pppsetup I learned is for dial-up, I really have no use for that but at least I learned that command.
I ran lspci, I figured the important part of the output would be
02:01.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401 100 Base-T (rev 01)
02:02.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4301 802.11b (rev 02)
I think this means that Slack did recognize my LAN and wireless NIC, right?
So how do I tell Slack to let me connect???
After running lsmod I got a lot of output and have no idea what I'm looking for. Thanks for any help that you can give me.
