Angry How can I get my MANDRKE to see my internet

I have mandrake dual booting with windows xp. All is fine boots up good.
System finds network card. I have run the network con fig tools 50 times.

I connect to INTERNET with a cable modem connected to a linksys 4 port router with to outer Windows machines connected to it. Winds works great.

I also had arklinux running before and it found the inter net easy.

I thought I tried every thing.

Someone please help. I am kinda new to linux. but want to try mandrake out for awhile.

I need a place to start

Check that you are getting an IP address

I'm assuming you've only for one network card?

Ifconfig eth0 # make sure you've got an ip address if not maybe you need to put a static address in.

Try pinging your gateway (Router). eg. ping

If that works then try and ping an external address like google's IP address or something - (At the moment from here it's:

If that works try and ping an external hostname e.g if that fails you've got your DNS incorrectly setup,

If you can receive an IP address but can't ping outside then check that your firewall on your mandrake box is configured properly
