Can't connect to the internet using cable modem and SUSE 9.1.


Can anyone help me in setting up my Ethernet network card to be able to connect to the Internet? If it helps, I'm on a Dell Dimension 9100 running SUSE 9.1 with KDE. Using the Internet works fine with windows. The ethernet cable connects from the computer to a router (which also has the cable of my other computer), and the router is connected to the cable modem. Thanks in advance.

ok, I have small abilities, still young to linux:
What about
"Setting Up an Internet Connection via Cable Modem with SuSE Linux 8.0 or Higher "
http://portal.suse.com/sdb/en/2002/06/cmodem8.html

What did you try so far?
Did you google for anything?
What messages do you get?

Cable modem are usually no problem.

I doubt you need to configure very much your eth card.
It will be all automated with suse

You might need to supply the DNS addresses used by your cable company
(do you know how to get these from your zindow$ setup?)

Just another random link
http://www.linuxheadquarters.com/how...blemodem.shtml

I assume you have a driver loaded for the ethernet card
type lsmod as root
type ifconfig as root
and post these back

This might help (you to learn) others to post some help

The router presence should not be a problem:
Your PC will get the lease (ie connection to the network via the router)

Do you mean you followed the instructions from these sites, and nothing work?

I cannot identify in the listing somehting that would be you ethernet card driver.
It might be there still and I do not know its name

type in a
su then your root password then
ifconfig -a
cat /etc/modules.conf
ifup eth0
dmesg | grep -i eth0 (trying to find out about your ethernet card)
dmesg | grep -i eth1
cut and past the whole result then type exit

and post here

I need to remember the command to find which driver is needed.
You need to describe symptoms and what you are doing exactly.

You have not answered my question about DNS

Maybe bad
See http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/history/348164

Did you search?

now then
type

lspci | grep -i pro (and report)

try to load the driver with
modprobe eepro100 (and report)

type
updatedb (if it does not work install the package)
locate eepro100 (and report)

http://pigtail.net/LRP/swap.html states it is indeed a driver called eepro100

if this locate eepro100 then
modprobe /path/to/module/eepro100

If not located you will need to find the driver on the net
