Not able to connect to Internet


Dear All,

I have an internet connection with 512kbs speed. I have PCLinuxOS installed on my laptop. when I boot the machine through PCLinxOS, I am not able to connect to the internet.

I am not getting IP/DNS entries/Gateway by my ISP. Can anyone please help me in troubleshooting this ?

But when the same Internet connection is connected to another Windows XP machine. Its working fine.

Thanks in advance..

Strange, When using LAN RJ45 cable straight from the modem to pc It should normally work instantly. Sure your cable or network card is ok and is it recognized by linux?

After this I tried

Yes repo, it is being recognized by the system, I am not able to copy and paste the output here. It is showing output as shown below
Code:
/sbin/ifconfig -a
eth0  Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr: 00:1F:16:B3:B9:FD
      UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 MEtric
      ...................
      .................
lo    Link encap: Local Loopback
Anything else needs to be inspected ?
