Internet Does Not Work, SIS 900


My information

Vector Linux SOHO 5.0
Compaq Presario SR1010Z
Athlon 64 3300
SIS 900 Ethernet NIC

In Windows (I am dual booting using LILO) I find my NIC card on PCI bus 0, device 4.

Doing a ifconfig I get only the loopback information

In etc/pci I get information for bus 0, devices 0 through 3 but no device 4.

Each time I run hardware config it finds the SIS 900 and installs

Each time I run dhcp it doesn't seem like anything happens.

Does someone know what steps I can take to get this Internet working?

Regards,
Stewart

Have you configured your network settings to obtain an ip via dhcp? If yes try typing this as root: service network restart.

I did this, but the reply was that the service network is not active.

My computer is on an internal network that is accessing the internet through a dynamic protocol on another computer. I think I should be using DHCP, correct?

Stewart

Try assigning a fixed ip (192.168.x.xxx), also make sure you have your netmask (255 255 255 0) and gateway settings configured.

Yeah, I tried that too, using all information from ipconfig /all in Windows. Didn't work. Any other suggestions, your help is truly appreciated.

Stewart

I am running VectorLinux. I copied this from their website

Based on Slackware 10.1
Linux kernel 2.4.29
KDE 3.3.2 and IceWM 1.2.13 desktop environments
OpenOffice 1.1.4 productivity suite
Firefox 1.0 preconfigured w/Flash, Java, and Mplayer plugins
Many more excellent applications such as Gaim 1.1.2, Gimp 2.2.1, Scribus 1.2, and Blender 2.34

Thanks,

Stewart

Sorry I'm not familiar with that distro, Try asking in the Slackware forum.
