Net Connection Slackware 9.1 troubles


Hello! I can't seem to get on the internet with Slackware 9.1 (or any other distribution other than Redhat 9)...

I've got cable internet.

I have a standard USB 10/100 ethernet USB adapter. in windows XP it uses Accton USB 10/100 Ethernet Adapter and SIS900 (only got one usb adapter though!)

ok, in linux I copied what I could from boot:

pegasus.c: v0.4.32 (2003/06/06):Pegasus/Pegasus II USB Ethernet driver
usb.c: registered new driver pegasus
pegasus.c: eth1: Accton USB 10/100 Ethernet Adapter
dhcpcd[156]: timed out waiting for a valid DHCP servers response

and ifconfig gave:

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)


a little help please?

p.s. I've been going at this issue for quite a while now! (with other distros though) more info on problem here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=123105

Have you set your ISPs DNS servers using netconfig?

OK, correct me if I'm wrong but AFAIK all ISPs providing broadband (ADSL, cable) connection to their customers, will provide at least one (more commonly two) nameservers for their use.

Without these nameserver's IP, you won't be able to resolve hostnames at all.

What are your DNS servers...better yet, what service and area are you using?

ok, I go into DOS command and type "ipconfig"

I get Connection-Specific DNS Suffix being - [area].optushome.com.au then lists ip address, subnet mask, default gateway...


but it's not a static IP address - it changes quite a bit... maybe not everytime I startup, but it does change.

meh, so I tried hostname "mandy" [made up] at domain "[area].optushome.com.au" (the area is just my area... it shows few letters of where I live... not very long)

do I get a real hostname? where do I find it? does it change?

ok, I go into DOS command and type "hostname" and get "WOOT" (I named it that)..... ?

It looks like slackware did at least get the pegasus driver installed though! Good old slackware

You are in good hands here. I hope all goes well. You've had enough headaches the past few days.

One thing to try (besides what these gentlemen have said) is see if you can ping a known alive server by it's IP address. 198.175.96.33 is intel.com fyi.

In XP/2K... type this on the command box: ipconfig /all

You'll see something similar to this:
Code:
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . : whatever.domain
        Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Intel(R) PRO/100 S Desktop Adapter
        Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-02-B3-3C-E0-0C
        Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.151.26.999
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.254.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.151.26.1
        DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.151.24.128
                                            10.152.193.196
                                            10.152.195.193
        Primary WINS Server . . . . . . . : 10.151.24.128
The only important things that we need to help you is the bold part... Your DNS servers... The thing that I asked from you four posts ago... remember?

Good... now edit your resolv.conf file to look like this:
Code:
nameserver 203.2.75.132
nameserver 198.142.0.51

Use netconfig to add the nameservers, and configure other settings (DHCP, hostname, domain, etc)... it will make them "stay" in there even after reboots. Make sure you've entered the correct information.

Also make sure you've configured all your network cards properly before rebooting.
