I am some what new to installing linux on laptops. I have a friend's Inspiron B130 from two years ago that I am installing Slackware 12 Kernel 2.6.x on. Everything is working just fine except there is no internet connection.
I configured the network in the setup and install of slackware. I went into the the terminal and typed ifconfig. eth0 shows as UP and running and so is lo. DHCP is on and I have an address for the IP, Bcast, and Mask. I can also ping the router. When I go into firefox I get problem loading page for any website I try.
I looked through the forums and saw that some people used ndiswrapper. Is that what I need to do?
Also in the control panel eth0 shows up as enabled.
