Angry suse 9.1 not connecting to the internet


Hello,
I installed SUSE 9.1 today.
I am having problems getting online.

My network is 768k DSL
one system win98se with a Asound lan pci 10/100mbps nic.
the other is the suse 9.1 system with the same NIC

The windows system connects to the net no problem.
The suse box is not connecting at all.
I am not sure what the problem is.

I have filled out all the info on the config parts for the nic and dsl part.

One thing I do not get is under the DSL part is asks for a username and password. I do not have to have them to connect with the windows box.

I just need some help, if yall have any advice or any questions that I can tell you about my system let me know.

Thanks for looking at this post.

The suse box is connected to the modem directly or to a hub/router? Did you set the nic to dhcp?

I got it connected threw a netgear router
nope I set it up with a 192.168.0.4 address.
the gateway is 192.168.0.1
windows is 192.168.0.2

back in the day I had redhat 9.0 online so I know the nic works with linux.

I set up port fowarding to the suse box.
also setup a a static route to the box.

still no luck.

What can you ping?
Can you ping 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2 locally? Can you ping an internet address such as 66.94.230.37 (Yahoo)? Perhaps you just need to add DNS.
You do need a correct username and pass. A correct username sometimes includes @domain and sometimes not.

If you can ping your gateway and yahoo.com you should be able to browse the internet from Linux irregardless of being able to ping Windows (perhaps a good firewall running?).
Ping yahoo.com working should mean www.yahoo.com works in a browser.

When you said ping yahoo.com works, was that by the IP address or the name yahoo.com?

Some types of connections may require configuring your browser for a proxy connection.
I will be no help for that as I have never needed to do it.

Yeah, I spent all day one time getting all my PC's to connect to the internet. Funny thing is, Samba can see all my other PC's files (Windows XP, Server, and my mom's), but if any of those have a dynamic IP (mom's and XP's do) it won't ping em for some reason...at least by name. Doesn't really bother me though as they all can access the internet and still share resources. I think with all my PC's...I set my router as the source for IP's and DNS...and it goes from there to the ISP anyways.

Do your Windows and Linux Box have the same Subnet Mask ?

Is DHCP Server running on your router ? Regardless whether you are usning
DHCP on your Win and Linux Box or not, check this setting.

If it's running, there is an address range the router's DHCP server uses for IP addresses.
Make sure that the addresses your windows Box and Linux Box are using as static IP
are out of this DHCP range.

Do you have a firewall on your Windows and SuSE system ?

yes the subnet is 255.255.224.0

it does have DHCP but, I did not check it.
Did try it but, still no luck.

I do not think you can have the same ip on 2 pcs.
so I set linux to 192.168.0.4
win is 192.168.0.2
gateway at 192.169.0.1

yes I do have a firewall on both systems
did set up a a static route to my linux box.
also opened port 80 on the firewalls.

Can you, just for test reasons, terminate the firewall and see how the systems behave ?
ping and internet

When I ping: www.yahoo.com I get as their IP address: 216.109.118.71
What happens if you
http://216.109.118.71/
in SuSE ?
