Right ... I just wanted to see whether
the driver and the hardware for your
ethernet match, and they do :} .... this
narrows it down to a setup-problem.

I assume you're using a DSL or cable-
modem? If so, what's the setup in winDOHs
like? Fixed IP, DHCP?


pearl_zildjian 07-07-2003 11:52 PM


Tinkster 07-08-2003 12:11 AM

Well, I'd suggest you go to mandrakes control
center and tell eth0 to go and try DHCP ... I'm
not too familiar with the draks (can't stand them ;}).


pearl_zildjian 07-08-2003 12:46 AM

well ive tryed doing that b4 but it still didn't work

Tinkster 07-08-2003 02:12 AM

What does
su - ifconfig

Are you getting new IP addresses
each time, or is it only dynamic in
the sense that your device (what
have you got there, broadband-wise?)
gets a new IP but hand out the same to
your comp?


pearl_zildjian 07-08-2003 02:59 PM

i have a cable modem through a ethernet card and when i went su - ifconfig it did nothing, and i thought maybe u meant ipconfig it still did nothing

Tinkster 07-08-2003 03:33 PM

It's ifconfig, ipconfig is the MS bastardized version
of a Unix command ;)

I did, however, make a mistake
the commands should have been
on separate lines like this
su -
su -c ifconfig
