What you're going to want to do is deal with eth1 only under Mandrake 10.1 if you aren't doing wireless and get that configured properly to connect to the Net. As suggested, that can be all done within MCC. Just make sure it's eth1 you're configuring. :-)
Yes, the newer version, when booting up, is assigning the built-in wireless as eth0, and the Realtek 8139 as eth1. On Mandrake 9.0, the wireless wasn't detected at all.
So, on both versions, the connections either work partial (on Mdk9.0) or don't work at all. Yes, I am using an Acer 4061 Notebook PC. And I need the wireless internet connection in my work. Should I wait for Mandriva 2006 or try another distro, or go back to XP?
