Problem connecting to the internet on my computer, freshly installed with gentoo.


I have just installed gentoo onto my computer, I was able to connect to the internet through the gentoo live cd just fine (adsl-setup, then adsl-start). I boot my computer, without the live cd in the disk bay, and i input the same command line to start an internet connection(adsl-setup, adsl-start) so that after i can emerge xfree. However gentoo likes to think otherwise. Although it seems to try to connect it gives me a message ".........TIMING OUT". What did i do wrong? Is it something I missed with resolv.conf? Any reply would be greatly appreciated.

Are you using dhcp? Try giving yourself a static address. Open a terminal su to root and run netconfig. Your router is your gateway. You'll also need your dns address. If you have windows you can run ipconfig /all and use that as a guide
