No internet in slackware.


First off, I have searched through these forums for the past hour trying to fix my problem.

The internet is completely dead. I am using slackware 10.2.

The output of 'ifconfig' doesnt list eth0, it only lists a local loopback. The command to list hardware (dont remember what it is) does show my NIC. My machine is a gateway and the NIC is built in. I'm not sure the make but I can look it up if its needed.

I cannot ping my router. I ran 'netconfig'. When it asks for a hostname, I dont know what to enter. I have internet service through the cable company.

Can anybody help?

Thanks!

Hi, and welcome to LQ!

If the device shows in lspci .... are the modules loaded?
lsmod

Also, if it's a router, shouldn't there be TWO interfaces?

Next: did you actually run netconfig during the setup process?
What is the content of your /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf ?


Cheers,
Tink

I think he means he's connecting to a router from his Slack box.

You can enter whatever you like. The hostname is just a name for your machine on the network. When netconfig asks for a domain, you can enter what you like there too. I think it also asks for DNS hostname or something and you'll most likely want to leave that blank.

Also, if you haven't brought the interface up, "ifconfig" won't list it:

#ifconfig eth0 up
