Unhappy eth0 is up but no network connection?


I just installed Slackware 10.2 and have trouble connecting to the local network / the internet. A little information:

Using netconfig I configured my host as followed:

dns: my dns ip adres

In ifconfig I can see that eth0 is up.

I'm on an 'old' lap-top (compaq presario 1700) with a Conexant LANfinity ethernet card which is detected automatically at startup.

The problem is that I don't seem to have a connection to the router ( or any external ip-adress, I can ping neither.

Does anyone have any advice?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
