netconfig problems in Slackware
I've recently switched from Redhat to Slackware, and everything has gone smoothly except for getting my internet connection to work. Redhat automatically detected my cable modem and everything worked without me doing anything. This is not the case in Slackware.
I've tried running netconfig several times, and I'm pretty sure that I should be using DHCP server.
Domain name: roygbiv
IP address: (use DHCP server)
Netmask: (use DHCP server)
Gateway: (use DHCP server)
Nameserver: (use DHCP server)
This doesn't work, however. I'm almost entirely certain that DHCP server is what I want though.
I am using cable internet.
Is it possible that the drivers for my ethernet card or whatever else aren't installed? If so, how do I find out if this is the problem, and/or fix it?
I'm a newbie, sorry.
