Internet is not working NEED HELP!!


Slackware looks great and works great

But my internet doesnt work... In Mandrake it worked great when I selected Static IP and entered the IP, DNS and gateway manually. But in Slackware my internet isnt working but I have the correct IP, DNS and gateway...

I have Cable internet and I work with a router.

Who can help me ?

first what does /sbin/ifconfig report about eth0? Usually with slackware I'll use a DHCP server (slackware's dhcp client is dhcpcd) and just start it running with 'dhcpcd'. But I'll try to help out however I can.

Which internet connection do you have?

ADSL with PPTP connection?
Dedicated router / gateway?
Can you ping the gateway?
Can you ping IP's? For example 195.241.48.33.
What does route -n shows?

is the eth0 interface up? (/sbin/ifconfig)
If it is then is the network mask and IP address correct? That should be enough to get you to be able to ping another IP address (provided the gateway is also correct).

if the router is your nameserver try adding the ip of the router in /etc/resolv.conf.

nameserver = xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Yeah it just sounds like you're not getting any name resolution. If you can open a website in your browser: google.com = 216.239.39.104; linuxquestions.org = 67.179.4.146 then you just need to add DNS server IPs to resolv.conf (as mentioned above)
