How to setup a connection?

Im tryin to figure out how to setup my connection so i can access the internet through browsers or other means. I'm using a cable modem, and i was wondering what do i have to do to set it up. In windows of course it's easy. Anyways, any help will be appreciated

Go into the Mandrake Control Centre->Network and use the wizard there. The documentation for 10.1 might be helpful:

i used that, and it stillo doesn't seem to work.i went through the setup wizard and set my connection to 'cable'. So of course it used dhcp. it showed my dns servers to be correct because i checked them through windows and they match. but the thing that bogles me is that it will sometimes connect for a brief time at a slow connect (about 100KbPS), but however about a second after i got to a website it disconnects again and won't connect again. i use comcast cable it that is relevant to anything. If any one knows anything about this it would be a big help
