I am a newb, I just installed RH9, and it's the first time ever I try to configure a Linux OS, so please be easy on me :)
Okay so for the last two weeks I've been trying to set up my internet through my router(3com 3c857). The first thing I tried was ofcourse connecting with the router through my browser by typing in "http://192.168.1.1" (=default IP). Connection refused. Now i start looking around, I used the GUI internet wizard(redhat-configure-network-druid) no good. Although I noticed that for my ethernet card it set 3com 3c501, but my ethernet card would be nvidia something. I did install the drivers from nvidia(using RPM packs), but I have no idea on how to configure them, so that might be a possible problem.
Okay, so I try netconfig(after reading a lot on this forum), still no good. I try /sbin/route add default gw 192.168.1.1 up not working.
I can't even ping the router.
I flushed iptables, still not working, so much for my suspicions against the firewall.
I can post the outputs of
or any other that are requested(I don't have them right now, I just remembered that most people ask about these things before giving any help..)
