dlink with manrake 8.2


I cannot get my dlink working with mandrake 8.2. The graphical tool does not work very well and i am wondering which files i need to manually edit to get it working.

I have 1 ethernet card. I used to use it to connect to a adsl modem and this worked ok. But now I cannot delete this old connection with the graphical tool.

I am running xp on another machine and have set up the dlink to dynamicaly allocate an ip . I have read some other posts and see that it may be better to use static ips. I can set this up for xp but am not sure how to manully do this with mandrake.. and am fed up with the graphical tools which dont really work that well.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

I assume by dlink your refering to a router vs a network card.

With /sbin/ifconfig you can configure a static IP address.

To configure on boot you will need to change the eth0 configuration file.
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
Edit the file called ifcfg-eth0

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
IPADDR=192.168.0.1
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=192.168.0.0
BROADCAST=192.168.0.255
ONBOOT=yes

Change the IP address for your network.
