Talking Ubuntu 5.04 DSL Internet???


Hi all
I`m very new to linux. Came to my senses as I`ve been a Windows user for more than 10 years.
I`ve managed, out of my windows experience, to setup my ethernet adaptor to a static IP. I`m using a LAN to connect via a Router (Netgear DG834 static IP 192.168.0.1 "255.255.255.0") I`m able to brows the Local Network but no Internet (Mozilla FireFox). What can I do??
Thanx All
Jaco

Maybe this should have been dropped in Networking ...
Gateway address, DNS address(es) ???.

I use DHCP, and IP is a black art, so I'm only guessing - hopefully some-one will pop up with the answer.

well due to triple posting, this guy already fixed his problems himself and said so in one of the other threads... isn't it nice to know you've wasted your time as other members can't follow usage rules?

He has?? Well, in that case I'll protect all the other precious flowers by reporting this thread.

Unfortunately, we'll all have to now spend time hanging out on street corners.
