Redhat 9 Laptop connects to internet at work, not at home
I have been using redhat 9 on my Dell Inspiron 3800 for almost a year now. I have configured my Xircom ethernet card to use DHCP at work (A university campus) and I can connect to the net without any problems. When I bring my laptop home, I can't even get the NIC to get the IP information. My router is set up as a DHCP server. My router can bind a specific IP address to a MAC address, so I tried setting it up with a static IP. I was able to get the NIC to get the IP address, but I could not ping anything but myself. No internet, etc. ...
This seems really wierd to me, because it works fine at work, but if anyone could help me, I would appreciate it!
