Networking devices, how to setup correctly
I am totally new to Linux, so bear with me...
I just finished installing JB Linux v 2.2 on a box I built. Previously an XP box, everything worked fine.
I went through the network set-up in the JB Linux setup menu, but I cannot connect to my router. The router should assign an IP, but the linux box still has the default loop back (127.0.0.1). Yes, I set it to dhcp.
What are the basic commands for setting up networking and IP?
also using KDE v2.1.2 (gui)
