Hello there good sirs,
DISTRO: Mandrake 9.1
I am trying to get my internet connection working with Linux, but it is proving to be more difficult than I expected.
I connect to the internet using a router, which is connected to a NIC (properly connected and installed) via ethernet.
I used drakconnect (the network setup wizard) to try and set up my connection. I selected that I would like to connect by LAN through my ethernet adapter, and inputted my ip address and subnet mask correctly.
Then I clicked on next and it comes up with:
DNS: *Inputted correctly*
GATEWAY: *Inputted correctly*
What do I put under hostname and zeroconf? I tried leaving them blank - doesn't work
Any help greatly appreciated,
