Internet not working
 
I've posted for help before but I still cannot get it working. I see other people saying "type 'ifconfig eth0' and post what It says and we'll take it from there." So here:

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:80:C6:F8:18:B7
inet addr:192.168.0.100 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::280:c6ff:fef8:18b7/64 Scope:Link

I am using shaw cable internet on a D-link router. I am dual booting with Windows XP and Mandrake. It works on windows (which I'm using right now) but not on mandrake. Please Help me.

P.S. Also, I am a noob at linux so if you say stuff could you maby explain how to do it? Thanks.

Have you tried hooking your cable modem directly to your PC bypassing the router? Do you have more then one PC that you need a router anyway?

Not sure what your problem is by your ifconfig output but there should be anything you have to configure if your using DHCP through your cable...

Hey! It works whet I don't use the router. (using mandrake to post this message) I do need to use the router though. My dad's computer needs the internet too. I bought the router so I could use his internet connection. Is there a way so I can use the internet with my router?

did you configure the routher at all? Install any software? logon to your routers config address... Like http://192.168.0.1 ? Is your dads computer windows?

Try looking through your router documentation for setting it up. If you just hooked up the cables it wont work.
