shoka,

Is your DHCP server up and running properly? Try using a static IP.

Is your ethernet cable working? Try another one.

everything's working fine in windows
my connection is adsl, with dynamic IP, and im using a router too. By static ip do u mean the internal ip behind the router? if so, I tried.

i guess its a hardware problem, linux cannot detect my ethernet card or something, or else i would have been able to access to the router's web interface.

when bringing up the eth0 interface, i sometimes see a message "SIOCSIFFKAGS: Device or resource busy".
It had been 2 days, can any linux guru here can help me? please let me know what kind of information you will need to determine the problem so I can post here.

Question How to connect to the Internet with RH?

Hello. My name is Naoki. It is first time to join here.
We, our computer circle's member try to use Linux.

Although we could install Red Hat Linux 6.2, we cannot find the way how to connect to the Internet.

This is our PC's detail.

* * * * * * * * * * * *

Red Hat Linux release 6.2
Kernel 2.2.14-5.0
The GNOME Panel 1.0.55

Mother Board (Network Card included): Elitegroup P6VEM3
Connection: LAN, ethernet

* * * * * * * * * * * *

I have two questions;

1. How can I connect to the Internet?

2. Do I have to upgrade RH and the Kernel? Our PC is brand-new, however, a cheap and thin client.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Try this
In Control center check the option "Force No APIC" for bootloader.
Then remove the present internet connection and create a new one.
Let everything be configured authomaticly, including gateway IP.

It seems very strange that your router's IP is 192.168.1.1.
It is usualy 192.168.0.1
Vakarimas?
Konichi va!

I found a fix for this...well, in the boot screen it still says failed when bringing up eth0, but now it takes only 1 second on that line instead of 30 seconds, and the internet works.
so if you get the same error message, which is "SIOCSIFFLAGS: Device or resource busy", u can fix it by:
in BIOS plug n play OS option I left it as 'yes' for window, should have turned it off when I install linux, this as well can fix the sound card detection problem.
