I've put together a little box to test parallel port devices as my laptop doesn't have one. It's a 233MHz with 266Mb ram and I have successfully installed Zenwalk Core 4.2.
I want to connect to the internet through our home network. We have an ADSL modem (D-Link 302G) plugged into a hub, and cables coming out of the hub running to each computer.
On my other machines I beleive I just use DHCP and it automatically works, or I set the ip of the computers to 10.1.1.*. My hub(or modem I guess) is 10.1.1.1. For example the windows box I'm on now ifconfig gives:
IP Address: 10.1.1.3
Subnet Mask: 255.0.0.0
Default Gateway: 10.1.1.1
I've spent a while fiddling with networkconfig and netconfig in Zenwalk. I've got to the stage when I can ping and be punged by other computers on the network (10.1.1.3 etc) but when I try to ping http://www.google.com
or anything else along those lines it just gives me the ol' "destination host unreachable".
The current configuration is:
Domain name: mshome
IP Address: 10.1.1.9
Pleeeease help me out anybody! I've been trying different things for days with no luck and I really want to start installing software! (need to use netpkg)
