how to setup internet connection?


hi, i'm using red hat 9 and i got problem to connect.
after i choose the "xDSL connection" it wants me to choose the ethernet adapter, but i can't find it. (i'm using shuttle xpc sn41g2 w/ onboard 1394 realtek 8801 and onboard lan realtek 8201BL).

thx before.

PS: i'm using adsl connection and i share my connection with my 2 other roomate.

When you say "you can't find it", do you mean that you are offered a pair of choices as to which NICs were auto-detected and you don't know which is which, or do you mean that nothing is detected and so you don't know what to do to set it up manually?

Sorry, posted an answer to another thread here, and don't see a delete button.

Anyway, the 1394 realtek 8801 would seem to be your FireWire controller, and not relevant to your Internet connection (please correct me if you have some kind of FireWire modem or something).

Anyway, having looked at the Shuttle product page, and the manual, there is no indication that this system is Linux compatible, and nForce 2 boards are still rather touchy, but this thread elsewhere on these forums indicates the solution. I would suggest going to the nVidia site and looking for the kernel modules for your nForce 2 mobo's NIC. Don't forget to read the readme first.

Hope this helps.
