Slack 10, network help


I'm having some serious issues connecting to the internet in Slack 10.

I'm behind a Linksys router. I can log into the router, but can't connect to the internet.

I've run netconfig multiple times and everything seems okay in ifconfig (might not be, i'm a complete noob).

I've also tried connecting directly to the modem, and power cycling the router and modem to no avail.

any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Does your router have a DHCP server inbuilt? If so, did you configure Slackware to use DHCP. Otherwise did you set the router as your default gateway? I'm guessing you did not since you can see it, but nowhere beyond it. Try:

route add default gw <IP of router>

You'll also need to add your DNS servers to /etc/resolv.conf if they are not there already.

i'm pretty sure the router has a dhcp server and i did configure slackware to use dhcp. i'll try adding the router as a default gateway when i get home.

thanks!

cat /etc/resolv.conf
route
