Couple of problems


I have just installed Mandrake Linux 10.1 for the first tiem n need help setting it up. I have 2 problems with setting it up

1. My internet Connection - I am running a small wireless LAN in my house using a cable modem with a dl-514 router on it. My pc is connecting through a cat5 cable to the router. What ever i do i can't connect to it in linux. It is obviously detecting my network card but i don't know how to configure it to connect to the net. Please can you help? instructions in simple english please. I have just started using linux.

2. My sound card - I am using a Audigy2 sound card which sorround sound. Mandrake will configure my on board sound card fien but not this one. How do i configure it to play through that card on a particular channel. In windows i use the rear ouput on the card for all my sound.

Any help would be much appreciated.


Bob

Tell the respective drake (e.g. netdrake or whatever
they call their wizard) to use dhcp ... you should be
able to find it under system on your KDE menu.

I have tried telling it to use DHCP in the wizard but to no avail.

Open a console, become root ("su -") and do the
following ... please post the output

lsmod
ifconfig
route
cat /etc/resolv.conf

OK ... seems that the network card is actually detected,
its module is being loaded. On the command-line, again
as root, try the following:

dhclient eth0

and tell us what output you get ... if you get nothing it
should be all good and ifconfig should give you more
than the lo interface.


Cheers,
Tink

I am confused, I must admit ...

sit0 in the error message from DHCP suggests that it's
looking for a wireless thingamabob, but I can't see one
in lspci ... if there were one present that I can't see the
order in which the interfaces are presented may be
stuffed ... try
dhclient eth1


Cheers,
Tink
