B4 compiling my kernel, I had my network up and running but ..
I compiled, for the first time (yes it's my first so I am a noob), Slack 10.2 default kernel: 2.4.31. I followed all the instructions by the book and the kernel compile went fine but I can no longer browse (or ping my router for that matter), LAN or the Internet. I recompiled the kernel again making sure that the network part of it had what "I think" it needed, but to no avail.
What did I do wrong in my kernel compile that I somehow disabled my network connection?? I have a router and I can't even ping it. I always get the "Network unreachable".
What should I check for when i do the : make menuconfig in my selections for the network section? ..if that's where I made the booboo.
Any input is ALWAYS greatly appreciated.
