hummmmmmm


My internet connection works perfectly with windows and I had nothing to do, just to click on get an IP automatically, and I get it from my ISP. If I give my PC a static one then it does not work.

What to do?

I have heard that some DHCP clients doesn't work with some DHCP servers. You may try another DHCP client.
I have no experience of this and can't help. Anyone?

What motherboard do you have?

Try booting with acpi=off as well as noapic.

Try setting up your network with a static IP in the same range as your windows partition uses.

My guess is that the dhcp server is not working, and windows is just assigning itself a static IP (which it does once it discovers there are no dhcp servers available)

As another newbie, can I join this thread.

I have a very similar problem. Mandrake 9.1 on a dual boot PC with W2K. Network is fine in Windoze but will not work with Mandrake - with exactly the same network settings. The network card is the same Via Rhine II (on-board). I use static addresses. I can ping localhost and the PC's own IP address, but can't see anything beyond the local PC, even using (numeric) IP addresseses instead of names. Drake config says the network is up but can't see the network.

I have been investigating for a couple of days and notice one strange thing. In Windowze the card is shown as being on PCI 0/18/0 but in Mandrake it is 0/12/0 is this significant? (I have no idea what it means or how to investigate it).

I would appreciate any help the experts can offer.

Brian

finally solved!!!

Hello to all, and thx to all!!!!
Finally I found out that the problem was from my ISP. It has problems with Linux DHCP clients and I have been told to use pump client instead!!!!
I tried my Linux at work and it worked perfectly with DHCP.

Thanks to all of you again!!!

Fernando.

Hi Katal, thanks for responding:

"Does it work without noapic, and acpi=off"

No, with those settings it won't boot at all - gets stuck at loading USB drivers (I think.)

Have sone a complete new install - reformat and everything - with exactly the same results.

Er... 'scuse me? So this "pump client" is downloadable and then escaped the restrictions of your ISP? Does your ISP have a problem with ALL Linux DHCP clients, because only Mandrake 9x-10.0 have been an issue for me with connecting to the net, and RedHat was able to.

not exactly

I tried that pump client at home and it did not work too. So I guess it is a problem with my ISP and the DHCP client.
But at work everything is fine with the connection!!!!
So I donīt know how I am going to fix that!!!!

Lightbulb Internet troubles

Hey Guys,
for a whole day, I too faced the horrible INTERNET connectivity problem.
Doesnt seeem to be ethernet card driven problem though.
My card though has the CHIPSET REALTEK 8029(AS). It worked fine with all linux versions till MANDRAKE 9.1 turned up. Everything seemed fine, just that it didnt connect to the internet. ALways gave the same error, check hostname stuff, and only pinged its own IP, not even the GATEWAY.
On telneting gave host unreachable message.
After trying all things, I finally decided to tweak with MANDRAKE CONTROL CENTER.
Go to the device manager and then just configure the module of ur ethernet card. Set it debug level to 1. This mainly concerns changing the permission mod. And it works just fine, posting this immediately after fixing it 'coz I know how horrible it can be to work on LINUX without net. Have rebooted by comp more than 20 times, so as to be able to browse on WINDOWS and try to solve all these wierd problems

Let me know if it works.

The permissions are usually changed to 755.
