How to get internet access in Mandrake 9.2
I am very new to Linux, just spent the weekend intalling Mandrake 9.2 on an old Compaq Armarda 1700 laptop, as a learning curve before moving to my main PC.
It works fine, except I dont seem to be able to link the Browser or the "E" mail (KMail) directly to the internet. If I go into the control Center and connect from there everything works fine, and once logged in I can surf the net or send and recieve "E" mails fine. I know I am missing something very simple but I just cant find anywhere in the settings that allow me to sort this out.
Any help or suggestions will be appreciated
