@snakle I'm glad to hear you got it working, and an easy one at that.

@anakin: take a look up top at alien bob's posts again, I think you'll find that to be your answer.

I cannot get the DHCP configuration under Slackware 11 with kernel 2.6.17.13.
ethtool reports that eth0 has "link detected" set to yes while running
Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart
only prints the MAC Address. Also, rc.inet1.conf has USE_DHCP[0] set to yes.

Would it be possible to set the IP address of the DHCP and DNS servers in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf? I have set the default gateway and the subnet mask but I don't know how to set the IP address of the DHCP server and two DNS servers. I have those IP addresses.

That is not how DHCP works. The DHCP client (dhcpcd) configures everything, so you should not need to supply values for anything anything but USE_DHCP[0]="yes". Leave the rest empty.

That's what I had initially and tried few minutes ago. dhcpcd prints only the MAC Address

Might be a stupid question, but... do you have a DHCP server running on your network?
And have you tried if you get connected if you use a static IP address from the address range of your local network instead of DHCP?

Well, I don't know where the DHCP server is as I have a satellite modem. I'll try using the IP Address that Windows got and see how it goes. What other options do I need to set?

It seems that the service provider stores the MAC address and use it to grant the IP address. I managed to get the same IP address after using HWADDR[0] to overrule the card's hardware MAC address with the one I got from the other machine.

I still have one problem, when I access a page it takes a while before the page starts rendering. Could this be related to the DNS servers or the gateway?
