Technically, to "hook up" to the internet all you need is a DSL line and an ethernet jack. There you go, you're hooked up. Now, to transmit data, that's another story. You're really going to have to post more information; what your setup is, what you've tried, what exactly isn't working, whether you can ping a website, et cetera

Try putting your ISP's nameservers in the file /etc/resolv.conf file. Here is mine for a sample:
Code:
domain infoave.net
nameserver 206.74.254.2
nameserver 204.116.57.2

Yes.

See if you can open an x terminal and give these commands:
Code:
fancy@uilleann $ su -
Password: 
root@uilleann # pico /etc/resolv.conf
Anything happen?
