thanks for the response. Unfortunately its a little over my head
I remember when i ran netconfig it said a i have a nic that uses tulip.o
anyhow i did lsmod and it shows tulip in there and says its used by "(unused)"
i assume ifconfig eth0 down stops your nic and up starts it. I did "ifconfig eth0 up" and it said SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resources temporarily unavailable
i did route and it did a loopback so i tried "route 192.168.0.1" which is my router ip and it didnt work
I'm sorry but I am so used to windows and now I have to do things by typing instead of clicking! I'm up for the challenge but I cant wrap my head around it or at least havent yet.
Also why would you set DNS servers? All of my stuff including DNS is assigned through DHCP from my ISP
Thanks again for reply!
