Angry Internet HELP


Ok I have done the boot thing. Now i have other problem... I cant access the internet. I have a ADSL connection through a ADSL2 modem/router/firewall in one device, with one PC on the device. I tried from the "Control Panel"(dont remember how its called in Linux) and tried with all the connections but nothing, and i dont know what to write in the fields of the setup. Please help what to do. Im using Mandrakelinux.

What type of connection do you have, Wired or Wireless? Can you give us the output of the following commands (you will have to be root)

Code:
ifconfig -a

Depends on what you use...DHCP or manual settings of your TCP/IP settings.

Check out this url:

try LAN.

This address might come in handy too:
http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Networking

Which ISP are you using? They usually have the manual settings for an TCP/IP connection on their site.

Your ISP sucks. The network settings are the same whether Linux or windows. All you need to know is if you get your IP through dhcp or if you have a static IP. If ADSL your connection almost certainly uses DHCP. If not, you can copy the values from the windows box that works, or recall your ISP and ask for your ip address, your netmask your default gateway and your nameserver.

I don't know how to set up mandrake to use dhcp (I don't use it) but that is what you need to do.
