Network Connectivity Issues


I can't connect to my network (and hence to the internet) in Slackware 9. I've tried netconfig, but it doesn't seem to be working. Anything else I can try?

Is the driver for your network adapter loaded? Post what network adapter you have (including revision if possible) and do an /sbin/lsmod and post back here.

My /sbin/lsmod looks like this:
Module Size Used By Not Tainted
usb-ohci 18856 0(unused)
echi-hcd 14632 0(unused)
usbcore 58144 1[usb-ohci ehci-hcd]
i810_audio 21160 1
ac97_codec 9512 0[i810_audio]
soundcore 14080 0(unused)
mii 2230 0[sundance]
pcmcia_core 38112 0
ide-scsi 8048 0

As for loading the drivers, I haven't. Were would I be able to find them? As I said, I can't connect to the internet.

Looking at your lsmod output, it seems that a sundance-based network adapter has been detected.
Is the device configured? Run /sbin/ifconfig and look at the output. You should have a device called lo, which is the loopback device (for connecting to 127.0.0.1 - your own computer). If your network card is properly configured you should see an eth0 device too. If the eth0 section has a part called "inet addr:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx your card is configured properly.

If you don't have an eth0 device listed, try doing an "/sbin/ifup eth0" and look at the output. If there are no error messages the device should have been brought online properly.

I'm not familiar with Slackware, but with Debian there is a nice simple configuration file called /etc/network/interfaces where you can specify if a device should use a static address or DHCP.
