Thanks Thort, I really cannot say anything sensible about the card. It certainly looks good to me and certainly a lot more up-to-date than the odd bits and pieces that I use. Judging from the link it shouldn't have any problems functioning in Linux so I think we should just go with that.
The command "ipconfig /release *kal*" may not always work but at least some times it will work so keep on trying it (beats unplugging and waiting!).
Another thing I remembered is that when i was trying out Suse I had the same problem with eth0 always showing a failed during boot-up after a fresh install. I found out however that after installing all the network packages I would get "eth0 ok". Probably I only needed one of the packages but not knowing which I just installed the lot.
Could it be the same in this case? I remember one of the questions during install being if you want to set up a single computer or a server. Could it be that if you choose for the single computer option it leaves out network packages that you need when setting up adsl/lan?
Hopefully some of the better informed Linux users will know the answer to this and hopefully will help you on.
Good luck!

ipconfig /release (without typing *kal*) worked in Windows XP. All ip-addresses where released. But no eth0 network recognized in Mandrake 10 start-up, when rebooting into Mandrake directly after ipconfig /release.

I haven't given up yet. Do you or someone else have some more ideas?

Okey. I tried this also. I started all over and began a fresh install of Mandrake 10. I choosed all server options and continued the installation. Now something unexpected happened. The installation program couldn't read from installation CD number one. This CD must be corrupted. It has behaved peculiar several times before when used. It doesn't work to boot from it. All the time I have been forced to boot from use a floppy which gives access to the CD.

So, I haven't been able to test your suggestion about installing all network options.

What I have done now is to install Mandrake 9.2. In 9.2 I now, as before, has Internet access.

I have to get a new installation CD for Mandrake 10 before I can install 10.

So, at the moment we (I) can't go on trying to get the eth0 network start at Mandrake 10 start-up. This has been the aim of this thread from the beginning.

Conclusion: This is the end!

This long thread has to stop here. It's better to start a new thread when I have got a new installation CD for Mandrake10. It's inconvenient when a thread has been as long as this. It's to much to read through and keep in mind.

I really want to thank all of you who have had so must patience with me.

Thanks for all your good advices during the days of this thread!

I have learned a lot during these days.


But we (I) will not give up. Some day I will have Internet access in Mandrake 10.

Too bad it didn't work out. I think you've got a good idea to download version 10 and try again. If the first CD is corrupted maybe XJNick was right all along (However, to be able to boot from the CD you most probably have to change the boot order in the BIOS, so maybe that's why you couldn't boot from the CD.) After downloading the iso-files, remember to check their md5sums before burning them to the CDs.

I hope we don't hear more from you on this matter

Cheers!

Mandrake9.2 router

Hi I have the following case and need help:

There is a Mandrake9.2 machine connected to a network with ADSL connection. Everyone is able to connect to the router using a pppoe interface. The problem is i want to set up the Linux Box as a firewall and have all the connections going through it- i.e internet sharing through the Linux Box. However to do this it seems i need to place a new network card into my Linux Box (one for the asdl router line feeding into the Linux Box, another (existing) which will have a netwok cable going into a switch or hub - ensuring that all traffic goes through the box). The problem is how do you go about doing this with Mandrake Control Center. I am able through the Mandrake Control Center able to connect directly using the ADSL router.

Hi !

At last! Internet works in Mandrake 10!

The purpose of this long thread was to get Internet work in Mandrake 10.

Finally I succeeded when I manually inserted the Router ip-address in Mandrake Control Center. Now the network works fine using DHCP.

All You helpers here have all contributed to my success!

Thanks!
