Internet Access


Im on Redhat 9 and I have install the newest Nvidia Driver set from Nvidia.com for my A7N8X Deluxe. It seems to have found my 3com network driver but still wont let me on the internet. I have my security set up to trust that device and its able to let http: and FTP: etc through. Can anyone give me a hand. I also cant get any sound...but I'll cruise a search for that stuff. Thanks and you guys are great!

uh, not sure you should post that routing info, though maybe it doesn't matter. maybe edit it out just to be safe.

okay, now do an /sbin/lsmod to see if your network module is loaded. you should see an nvnet in the list. if you don't see it, do a:
modprobe nvnet

and see if it shows up. then try to ping something (e.g.: "ping google.com"). if you can't ping, do
dhcpcd eth0

and then try again. if still no go, we'll have to troubleshoot more. i'm still learning networking stuff, so that'll help me, too, but that's as far as i know for now.

well did /sbin/lsmod and didnt see anything by that name. My Motherboard has 2 netword devices. Linux found the 3com and let me ativate that. It says that i cant configure the nvnet one. I have loaded the Nvidia drivers...isn't the network driver in that for linux. I tried pinging google.com and it doesnt ping. I can ping the other computers on the router and the router itself but still have connect to like google.com or msn.com or linuxquestions.com

no, i don't think the nvidia driver is in linux. i believe you have to install it from the driver pack on the nvidia site (which it sounds like you did).

did you try to start the dhcp daemon with the "dhcpcd eth0" command before trying the ping? otherwise if eth0 is recognized and up and the driver modules are loaded, i'm not sure what the next step would be. maybe netconfig to make sure everything is configured properly.

how do I run that. I've tried it from terminal logged on as Root. I have about 5 hours of Redhad experience so if you could be really specific that might help.
