OK this is my last time trying because this is about to drive me nutso. I did the ipconfig/all on the Windows side and it gave me some this infomation.
primary DNS Suffix:
Node Type: Broadcast
IP Routing Enabled: Yes
WINS Proxy enabled:Yes
DHCP ENabled: Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled: yes
subnet mask: 255.255.0.0
Default gateway: 172.xx.x.254
DNS Servers: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
I did a netstat on the knoppix side and it brought up some things that said connected.
I did a route but , I don't truly understand how to do this in the "Root" ; all I typed was route and it brought up something with addresses.
I have the linux book 4th edition would this help me on setting up my DSL for linux..
Note: I also did it this time with "dhcp" but, I don't know if I'm following the steps right because I still click on the "Google" icon and it still won't connect me to what ever address I put in.
I tried also to do ping my "IP Address number" and this worked but when I put in ping goggle.com or even ping www.google.com
