Well, I don't know why but I can't view any sites. Mozilla and Firefox both tell me that yahoo, yahoo.com, and www.yahoo.com don't exist.
However, when I try the 216.109.117.205 IP address, it actually tries to connect but then times out.
I tried to ping it from the terminal as root (I don't know if I have to be root or not) but it just times out after almost minute just like the two broswers do. Although it says that the network is unreachable.
Now, I am not sure what is causing this. I am getting a status menu when typing the adsl-status command. And, I didn't have the firewall active. I chose 0 on the level.
Any ideas? Please someone help.

Well, I just want everyone to know that I got this done on my own and it worked.
thanks for who responded to this topic.

I am not saying this as trying to be mean or a d*ck but I am simply stating that if someone has trouble, take the time to search this forum or on goole or another search engine.

It worked for me.

Oh, and I also used the Samba to network all my pc's together.
Works like a charm and I haven't had any problems yet.

It's nice to use a pc knowing it's not typically going to crash.
