3com card internet connection problems mandrake behind a router

i've just installed mandrake 10 and i cant get the internet connection to work, im completely and utterly new to linux in every single way.

the machine is using a 3com network card which it seems to have detected and its behind a belkin router

many thanks in advance,


p.s during boot it comes up with the error 'et0 interface' - [error]

post the output of these commands as root from a terminal please

lspci -v


ifconfig -a

route -n

good luck. (don't post the output of the good luck luck command, it probably won't return anything ;-) just lightening things up.)

i actually just got it working..

i ripped out the network card from my sisters computer and put it in mine.

it seemed to be a 3com card incompatiblity, i found references to it floating around the web.

many thanks for the quick reply though


p.s no doubt this will be one problem of many i will have to face :p

it could've been a driver problem, 3com typically has good support. in any event, glad you got it sorted.
