Surf,

You're there! Ok, your ethernet card is recognized by the kernel because if it wasn't, you wouldn't receive the information about eth0 interface. Looks like your setup. What is wrong now? You can't access any websites? You can access websites at this point. Try them:

"ping www.yahoo.com" (w/o quotes of course)
"ping 66.218.71.80" (again, w/o quotes)

Tell me which ones were unsuccessful/successful.

Also about the emacs command line, what you typed is wrong. You needed a space between. It should be this:

emacs /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/icfg-eth0:0

thanks twantrd.... you, Netizen, and mara are good people. The way i see it is, the more people that are interested and using Linux, the stronger it will be, more people will put money into it....and who knows, i may trun a few friends on to it once I get the hang of it.

Thanks

p.s....no network devices listed on my hardware list
i was going to give up on it...thanks again twantrd. Im in orange county...what part of CA are you in?

Hey Surf,

Actually, I apologize but when you ran "netconfig" did you choose to select DCHP? What was your starting IP address for your DHCP in the settings of your router? Because if you did select DCHP then you didn't grab a valid ip address range. Linksys in default (in most version I think) starts releasing dhcp addresses from 192.168.1.100 and the device ip is 192.168.1.1. Therefore, you having an address of 192.168.1.0 is invalid and that is probably why you cannot connect to the inet. If this is the case, then you would need to run "netconfig" again and specify an ip address.

Ip address: 192.168.1.x (x = # that is greater than 1)
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Broadcast ip: 192.168.1.255 (might be picked up automatically, forgot if it does/does not)
DNS: Specify your DNS servers here

-twantrd

EDIT: Don't give up man! I'll help ya out. I'm building my friends computer at the moment so I probably will not respond quickly. Oh yea, I live in San Diego!

thanks

ok,

when I selected this from the netconfig, It closed all the areas to enter the info.

[ ] use dynamic IP configuration (BootP/DHCP)

should i check that box?

I did the
ping www.yahoo.com
and it said "unknown host"

another thing that confused me was,

1. I dont have network hardware listed when I open the hardware browser.
2. when I clicked on the network configuration icon, i would no longer open.

I was wondering if I needed to adjust my router settings-
filters, forwarding,dynamic routing? DMZ Host(192.168.1.0)?

thanks again and again!

Hey Surf,

Let's not worry about this and lets do this command line style . Please copy&paste what you see when you type these commands:

1. lsmod
2. lspci -v

Quote:

No, need to.

Then we'll break down more from there, 1 step at a time.
Oh yea, you never told me if you can ping "66.218.71.198". Please let me know if you can.

Sorry Surfmonkey...I'm building a router so I haven't been on much. Yes, you want to select DHCP. With a router that will help because it will automatically get the network information from the router.

Yea, that's an indication that your card is not recognized at all. Do you remember what steps you did to make linux recognize the card? Try doing "modproble tuplip (or modprobe tulip.o)" and then do lspci -v and see if your ethernet controller is recognized.
