Unhappy Setting Up Internet Connection

I just installed slackware 10

I installed my nvidia drivers, configured the sound etc..

I have a cable internet connection & a Realtek Network Adapter. The connection dosen't use any static IP. The problem is that i can't connect to the internet now. I have tried drake 10, FC2 etc & all of them worked without any configuring troubles. I tried using the 'netconfig' cmd but that did not help.

Please help me.

So is the card working you just can't get on the internet or is the card not even working??

If the card is working, see if you can ping the router (if you have one). If you can, see if you can ping or something, if you can't ping then there is a problem with your DNS. You have to add a line to /etc/resolv.conf (if i remember correctly) like "nameserver ipaddress".
