Question


I am dualbooting with win98 and mandrake 7.2. My Dsl works just fine in win98, but no matter what I do in linux , I cannot get it to work. I have the right drivers installed for my ethernet, it works fine. This is the information I have when I look at winipcfg in windows ---
IP Address:192.168.1.3
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1

DHCP server: 192.168.1.1
DNS server: 192.168.1.1
Host name: #31ROCKS
Node type: broadcast
Can somebody please tell me what I can do to get my dsl to run in linux mandrake 7.2 ? please be specific
thanks, roy

What kind of setup do you have? Like, in your Windows, you have a 192.168.x.x IP address. Are you giong thru a router or something?
Inside Linux, you need to find out by typing ifconfig to see if during the install Mandrake installed your ethernet. When typing ifconfig, you should see an entry starting with lo and a bunch of stuff afterwards, then a space after that giving you information about eth0, if you don't see anything with eth0, then your ethernet card is not installed.
What kind of ethernet card to you have? This helps us dramatically in determining if it will work or not.
Let us know!

I have a realtek, rtl 8139 ethernet card. I have checked a website, and seen that it is supported. I also ran ifconfig and it works. As far as I know the card is up and running, and installed. But when I try to configure the connection,I cant get it to work.

What does it give you for the readout for ifconfig under the eth0?

I also tried installing some rpm's, they piss me off only my realplayer installed. Nothing else will install, they will tell me something like locales-de is needed. I also tried installing vmware that came with my distro on a cd and it tells me it cant configure it. I dont know, I thought linux was supposed to be good stuff. Im starting to lean towards windows kicks linux in the nuts. Everyone I talked to said mandrake was a good distro. Oh yeah, another thing pissed me off too, both of my cdroms are mounted and everything automatically but I only have access to one of them.

What happens when you ping your gateway or router?

I am going to give up for now on dsl on mandrake. As far as I know, from other people that I have talked to that dsl is easy to configure, pretty much automatic on mandrake. But now I am tribooting and am ******* around with win2k server.
Thanks Anyways

I think I know what the problem is, your DNS entry, unless your 192.168.1.1 is setup as a router, gateway and DNS server, you should have your DNS entries pointing to the correct ones given from your ISP, like what your router or gateway has for its DNS entries.

My DNS number and gateway are the same numbers. I just installed win2k server, and configuring for the internet was a snap as it was in win 98. All it needs is the ip addr, dns, and gateway and I was up and running. Are there any other places to configure TCP/IP in Linux mandrake besides the draknet program?
