wireless-G Braoband Router-4 port switch no internet


Hello iv just got a linksys broadband router i have a "motorola surfboard cable modem sb4200" on the back of the router is a plugin for an ethernet cable which plugs in to my cable modem. I then have a cable running from port1 on the router to my ethernet connection on my pc. On windows this connects me to the internet so i know the cables are fine.anyway im dualbooting with redhat 9 when i go in to network configuration if i set my ip address statically eth0 is active but i can not go on the net if i choose to obtain my ip automatically eth0 fails. dont know if this is needed or not but my "resolv.conf file looks like this
"nameserver 62.31.144.39"
"nameserver 195.188.53.175"
"nameserver 62.31.112.39"
when i type "route -n" in a terminal i get this
destinaion "gateway" "genmask" flags metric ref use iface
82.36.64.0 "0.0.0.0" " 255.255.248.0" u 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 "0.0.0.0" " 255.255.0.0" u 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 "0.0.0.0" "255.0.0.0" u 0 0 0 lo
if i try to ping anything i just get an error which says network unreachable

I don't understand why the linksys router isn't giving you an IP address automatically.

Unless you changed things in the router setup, you should be using a 192.168.xxx.xxx address.
The gateway will be the routher which by default is at 192.168.0.1.

You can point the browser to this address and enter 'admin' as the password (no username by default) and make changes there. If you linksys router is like mine, the router assigns ip address upto 192.168.0.100 so if you want to use a static address, start the last number above 100. Of course, you can change these things in the setup.

Most likely your dhcp client isn't set up or not working right or even isn't running. I think you have 3 clients to choose from. There is one that was written by ISC (they wrote the linux dhcp server) that works with the linksys router. I don't remember if it is 'dhcpd' or dhcp-client'.

Hello my first computer is not even connected to the router now so i think i need to start from scratch this is my output from "ifconfig"
[root@master root]# ifconfig

now what i have noticed is this to start redhat i have to disable some thing in my bios called "usb legacy support" or my computer freezes at start up at the line
usb - ohci
ehci - hcd
now as i am dual booting with windows me for "windows me" to start i need to have "usb legacy support enabled"then when windows starts up i can enter the address http://192.168.1.1 in to a browser and i am the given the chance to enter password & username so i think my first problem could be that i need to find a way to enable "usb legacy support" and i just want to say thanks for any help i get
nige
