Looking for a distro that will deteck my internet...only had success with SuSe
in the past i have tried mandrake 9.2 and knoppix, both of these distros did not detect a connection to the internet....i disabled my onboard lan and only used my pci nic,vice versa, i have even tried on a router and still nothing.....both distros seemed to know the make/model of my nics but i cant get a connection going...i thought it was just the nameservers but nope it isnt.
anyway, i have tried suse 9.1 personal...detects my internet no problem..im not sure why this is but i would like to find a different distribution that can do the same...maybe one that has development in mind(C++ compiler..suff like that)
i did like mandrake alot and i wonder if the new 10.0 would be able to connect me to the internet no prob.....
well..any sort of info regarding a different distro that should detect my internet easily, or why other distros dont do so...please reply it would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT::forgot to say-my isp assigns me an ip address via dhcp
my specs below:
amd 2100+ 1.7ghz
896 mb ddr RAM
geforce fx5200 256mb
SYNTAX sv400 mainboard
via rhine II onboard lan (currently disabled)
realtek RTL8139 nic
14 gig hd and a 7.5 gig hd (yes, i know..its not alot)
