eth0 is up but no network connection?
I just installed Slackware 10.2 and have trouble connecting to the local network / the internet. A little information:
Using netconfig I configured my host as followed:
dns: my dns ip adres
In ifconfig I can see that eth0 is up.
I'm on an 'old' lap-top (compaq presario 1700) with a Conexant LANfinity ethernet card which is detected automatically at startup.
The problem is that I don't seem to have a connection to the router (192.168.1.1) or any external ip-adress, I can ping neither.
Does anyone have any advice?
