Which modules are those?
And how does one 'drive the LAN card'?
Hello, I am relatively new to all this too - have spent about a week trying to get my Speedtouch USB modem working with RH9 - hope I can help though.
Open your terminal and type in ifconfig - you should get back the ip of yourself 127.0.0.1 and below it your modem connection in my case ppp0 and my ip address of xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and also lots of other stuff too (ignore all this for now)
If you see your usual IP from your ISP you're actually connected - and if you are but still can't get on the net like what happened to myself - you may want to try and reconfigure your DNS settings. They can be found in /etc/resolv.conf - this was the big problem for me!
should be the nameserver(s) of your ISP. If this was the problem then you should be able to connect. BUT if you never got past the ifconfig part - what he means by "driving the LAN" is that you are going to have to try and install a driver for you particular LAN card! If this ain't up and runnning then you won't get a connection either! Your modules are the driver parts you have installed already i.e. your ppp etc.
Hope this helped!?
