Angry Internet won't work on RH 7.2


I'm running RedHat 7.2, with a cable modem connection. The cable modem is connected to a router, which is connected to the computer. Whenever I start Netscape, Mozilla or GNOME's browser, it won't open any webpages. I have a dynamic IP. How can I set RH up to work?
Thanks!

As root,

ifconfig -a

what does that give you? (Don't post the actual h/w addresses though - they look like 3e:5s:43:ef43 - security first)

this command should tell you what ethernet devices are configured.

ifup -eth0

should tell you if it's running or not.

Bert

BTW, who is your provider? Do they support NAT network address translation? If you're using a router they'll need to.

My provider is Time Warner Cable, the internet works through the router in Windows... i'm on it. ifconfig -a looks OK.
ifup -eth0 says the device doesnt exist, or something similiar.
ifup eth0 says determining IP information... failed.

have you tried to run netconfig to try and setup your ethernet card ?
what kind of nic is it ? doesn't sound like its detected your card or hasn't loaded a module to use the card.

I haven't downloaded any drivers or ran netconfig. The network card shows up under WinXP as a, "CNet PRO 200."

It's a PCI ethernet controller then? Running on a laptop?

Doing a quick linux google search reveals your card may be supported by tulip.o module.

ftp://ftp.scyld.com/pub/network/drivers.html will give you a copy of the driver. Download and install it.

It's an FTP site and Internet Explorer can be funny with FTP. Wait for a while after linking to the site or do a http://www.google.com/linux search for the driver tulip.c (or tulip.o).

I got into it with a FTP program, I see a file named tulip.c should I download it? If not what should I download? And how do I install if its not a .tgz or RPM?

You should already have the tulip module. Try doing a /sbin/insmod tulip or a /sbin/modprobe tulip to insert that module.

I found a disk with CNet Pro 200 Linux drivers at home.. we have TWC there too, and I guess they gave it to us with the network card. I installed them and it works fine. Thanks!
