mandrake 10.1 no internet connection eth0 fail
I've seen this problem a lot in forums and still haven't been able to find the answer. Sorry if you've seen this problem posted a lot. Previously had Suse 9.1 on same computer and internet worked fine. Currently am dual booting with XP and internet works fine. Upon booting into Mandrake 10.1, bootup stops at "eth0" for about a minute then says "fail" and continues to boot. Unable to ping anything exept 127.0.0.1 (which works). Have tried:
ifconfig eth0 up
and get a "this device is busy" or something like that. Also tried
ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 up
Hoping someone has come across a definitive answer to this...as it seems to be happening a lot.
What's your network setup? DSL, cable modem, home LAN, other? Probably it's just a simple misconfiguration somewhere, but it's tough to diagnose if we don't have any idea what your set-up is.
sorry.....dsl. Also I've tried using the internet connection wizard. I choose adsl (I've tried choosing others just for the heck of but no lick), then I get a listing of a bunch of differnt countries, but no USA or anything that resembles my provider (Verizon).
I too am having the same issue but I use sprint and have no user name or password for my internet connection, god I hate being a noob.
I FIGURED IT OUT
LOL im dumb, it turns out I was choosing the wrong connection type for my adsl I was chosing ppoe when I should have chosen ppoa, you might want to check this too.
post the output of " #ifconfig ". ?
and do you use dhcp to get an IP nr. ?
I have tried using dhcp and manually entering ip info
lo Link encap:Local loopback
inet addr: 127.0.0.1 mask: 255.0.0.0
inet6 addr: :: : 1/128 Scope: Host
UP Loopback Running MTU: 16436 Metric: 1
RX packets: 42 errors:0 dropped:0 overuns:0 frame: 0
TX packkets:42 errors:0 dropped:0 overuns:0 carrier:0
Collision:0 tx queuelen:0
RX bytes:2656 (2.5kb) TX bytes:2656 (2.5 kb)
I've also tried reconfiguring by booting with disk #1 and selecting "upgrade". I've tried using pppoe
and pppoa. I also noticed that on boot up when it gets to "Bringing up interface eth0" it waits like a
minute then then says: FAIL- Device or service is busy.SIOCIFFLAGS.
I am a noob so this might sound dumb but could it be possible that for some reason (by looking at
"ifconfig") that the system is doing a loopback test over and over and over and that's why it's busy?
Maybe Mandrake is just incompatible with this old computer? It's a HP Pavilion 6630.
