Lan connection and Mandrake 9.2


Okay, I am Mandrake newbie. I searched for this problem and I am having a hard time with it.

Here is the deal. I installed 9.2 and it found me network card. I tried to get online via a DLink router hooked up to a cable modem.

I went into the DrakConnect section and tried to set up my connection automatically. I still can't get online.

I went to the konsole and typed ipconfig and it says "command not found". I have tried this under root, and it still comes up.

On the same machine I have WinXP installed and the connection works fine....

Please help!!!!

Thanks!!!!

PS-I tried ipconfig>ipconfig.txt and it still gave me that same error.

It looks like that the Kernal has not recognised your eth0. I would expect to see something like

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:10:A7:09:FB:07
inet addr:10.0.0.3 Bcast:10.255.255.255 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:3055 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:1850 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
RX bytes:1617844 (1.5 Mb) TX bytes:317184 (309.7 Kb)
Interrupt:10 Base address:0xc000

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX packets:16117 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:16117 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:1106319 (1.0 Mb) TX bytes:1106319 (1.0 Mb)


I would try reinstalling/reconfiguring the etho NIC from scratch. I have an integrated modem/router i just needed to state for my eth0 connection that it accepted DHCP.

So just reinstall the "driver"?

If you are convinced you are using the right driver. What NIC is it?

I use Redhat 9. Check what's in your /etc/modules.conf? In mine I have a
line

alias eth0 8139too

which is for a RealTek NIC and refers to the 8139too.o kernel module to support the device

It could have been

alias eth0 eepro100

for an Intel Ethernet Pro NIC


Check out www.scyld.com and www.scyld.com/diag/index.html

Try dmesg to see whether at any stage the Kernal recognised the NIC
Try route -n

Just for luck have you tried ifconfig eth0 up

or

ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up


good luck

Here is what my lan said after I did an output from the card:

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX packets:90 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:90 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:5892 (5.7 Kb) TX bytes:5892 (5.7 Kb)


I would really like to use Linux, please help!

Using the Draknet tool what does it say in the box titled Lan configuration?
Does your router supply IP addresses?
How have you set up XP?
