Can't connect to internet


I have installed mandrakelinux 10.2 onto a Dell 7000.
internet does not connect.
I can ping my M$XP computer and back. I can log on to my home router , I can log on to my DSL modem. I'm using static IP on all computers. I tryed puppy live and was able to connect so pcmica 3C589 is ok. Have 3c589_cs in mcontrol center.

Check internet configuration

Hello,

One possible point could be internet configuration especially there is a proxy in your net domain.

Hope helps,

cdcshu

If I understand your post right you can ping internal machines, see your Telus MAC addresses registraion page but can' get out past that? What brand and model number is your router? Do you have DHCP enabled? I know you said that all of your PC's are set to static addresses but still have to ask the DHCP question. Have you assigned any MAC addresses to a specific IP? If you have set in the router that only the MAC address of this PC can have the address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx then that IP will not be able to be used by any other PC even if you hard code it.

What are all of your settings?
eth0 IP -
Gateway -
DNS1 -
DNS2 (not that you need if your behind router) -

Can't connect to internet

yes I have 3 computers one (M$S)laptop (wireless)( ip=68.xx.xxx.101), one Desktop (M$S)ip=68.xx.xxx.102, and linux laptop (not a dual boot)ip=68.xx.xxx.105 and cabled direct to router. I can ping to each computer and rev. Pull cables ping fails. I have a D-Link wireless router(D-614)ip=68.xx.xxx.213 (gateway)and DSL router (SBC)(maintenance on DSL ip=192.168.0.1). I can open a web browser via ip address and log into both routers for maintenance. Each of the M$S computers has an assigned static addresses and are able to surf the web with no problem. I'm only trying to connect to internet to surf. Not to confuse myself. Thanks

Thanks Ron

Ok well I am little confused as to what your trying to do via your last statement.... you are trying to access the internet right? I ask because in your last statement you ask if you have to activate SAMBA? Samba has nothing to do with your Linux box being able to access the web, it simply is a tool for Windows Boxes to share files on a Linux box. If you are trying to access a SAMBA share... then thats a little different.

To start SAMBA, type this on your command line (*** MUST BE ROOT ***):
service smb start (you should get some output which indicates the service started ok, or failed.

To make SAMBA start every time you start or re-start the computer, type this on your command line (*** MUST BE ROOT ***):
chkconfig smb on

Could you please confirm the issue you are trying to resolve? Thank you!

Talking I fixed it

Thanks for all support, I got frustrated with mandrake 10 and installed Slackware 11 to see if it would fix itself as I installed. It did not work either with static ip's. So I read try DHCP ,so I netconfig set up dhcp with the same ip as be and it works. Next problem wireless usb.:-)

Thanks
