IMHO that might be a configuration problem with your router. All internet traffic should go to the router, I think. It should send you the nameserver addresses that are then stored to /etc/resolv.conf. Does this file contain anything? Mine looks like this as an example:

Code:
# Generated by dhcpcd for interface eth0
search a-name-that-should-not-be-relevant-I-think
nameserver 217.237.151.205
nameserver 217.237.150.205

So you see the web-frontend of your router when you surf its address in firefox?

You could try to edit /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf -- there is a line "GATEWAY=..." where you could state your router's address. I don't need that line, but who knows what it's good for ...

I think you're right about that. It should see any other nameserver.

Last try at the moment: I searched here on lq.net and found a way to keep a existing (good) resolv.conf file and not let it change each time the dhcp program is run. (The post is: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...53#post2431353)

So you could edit the file /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf and change the eth0 section to contain a new line:

Code:
# Config information for eth0:
IPADDR[0]=""
NETMASK[0]=""
USE_DHCP[0]="yes"
DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]=""
DHCP_KEEPNTP[0]="yes"
Then edit your file /etc/resolv.conf and add (compare to mine) the dns addresses that you are using with your windows box Not elegant, but might work.

Alright, so in rc.inet1 i've modified the file to look like this

#Config information for eth0:
IPADDR[0]="192.168.0.1"
NETMASK[0]="255.255.255.0"
USE_DHCP[0]="yes"
DHCP_HOSTNAME[0]="DI624'
DHCP_KEEPNTP[0]="yes"

saved the file.

Next step?

I would not fill in the first two lines, not sure about the DHCP_HOSTNAME. The "USE_DHCP" line tells your computer to get the address and netmask from your router, so I would leave the first two empty.

Then edit your resolv.conf. I guess you know how to obtain the nameservers' addresses either from your windows box or from your router. Fill them in in that file (if you are not sure how it should look like then take my post as an example). Maybe once again restart rc.inet1 and rc.inet2. And pray
BTW what a mess. It should usually really be not that big problem to get simple networking/internet working on a Slackware box. It's pretty straight here -- set a host name, set dhcp yes and I'm up and running :-|

Alright, i've got everything, the only thing i'm a bit confused about is the name servers. In your version you had two name servers of slightly different numbers. Did you add the second one? I only have one

and mine down below

nameserver 192.168.0.1

If you added it, where did you get it from? If not...do you know where I can get it from?

Mine was filled in automatically. Since this is not true for your computer (don't know why) you need to get them from your Windows box or router. Both have it, probably there's a status page if you call your router's web interface; or see on your Windows box under Network connections --> Properties or something like this.

Another way to get them: http://www.shaw.ca/en-ca/CustomerCare/ContactUs/

I gotta work now. I will look here every once in a while. Next step is anyway to edit resolv.conf and put in the nameservers' addresses. I have good hope that you then can use the net

How would i get them from my window's box?? do you mean the shell? The closet thing to two sets of Ip's is

DHCP server
The DI-624 can be setup as a DHCP server to distribute IP addresses to the LAN network.
DHCP server {X} enabled { } Disabled
Starting IP address 192.168.0.100
Ending IP Address 192.168.0.199
Lease time 1 week

think that could be it?

Yea...i agree this is pretty ridiculous!! I feel bad for you, and at the same time really thankful for your help, I wanna BEAT this problem down.
