problems connecting to the internet via private home network


I'm currently running mandrake 10 on a sony vaio pcg-z505s (installation was really smooth) . i am trying to connect to the internet through a computer which is running win xp pro . windows is connected to the internet using a speedtouch usb adsl modem and the laptop and computer are connected to each other with ethernet . i can ping the windows computer but i cannot ping any internet ip address.
thanx in advance

does windowsXP have router software built in ? if so is it activated and configured correctly ?
otherwise what router software are you running ?

have you entered the windowsXP's ip address in linux's ethernet GATEWAY field ?

well... you dont have a router, so you will have to set windowsXP to act as a router.
then you need to either setup windowsXP to run a DHCP server and make linux auto detect network settings via DHCP... OR, manually enter linux's network settings.

i assume you lan is working on a class C network (subnet mask 255.255.255.0) so give linux a free IP on that netmask (for example 192.168.1.101) and set its gateway ip to windowsXP's IP.

anyway, this is reealy not the best place to ask a windows question !
try www.developerfusion.com

its mainly a programming forum (used to be vbweb.co.uk)
but there are some MS windows experts there... one of the mods is a windows BETA tester.
