Unhappy Problem with getting up the inet connection.


Hello. I've posted this in the networking forum but nobody seems to respond. I thought maybe this is better place since i have MDK.

Please help

I think my modem doesnt need to be recognised because i use ethernet card to connect to the modem.
What is setup lspci ? :P
Yes im connecting directly. No routers etc.
I think i must use dhcp because i bought dynamic ip from my provider.

Thanks for reply. I hope these answers will help.

lspci is a command tht u can put in a termianl window which should give u an output of ur pci devices for ur system. If when u ahve tried that and ur card is recognised u can go to the `network device control` in ur mandrake set up and check that u have dhcp assigned.... if not then IMO I would set up ur dns server statically which basically involves putting in ur ip addy in network device and ur system ip addy and then using an editor to put in ur dns server in /etc/resolv.conf for example
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

if u had it up and running b4 then u should be able to do it again...personally if u r happy with a distro that`s pretty much working with what u need then stick with it :-)

1) check your settings in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 -file
2) try to decode the output of # netstat -r
3) In Mandrake Control Center, check that in Network & Internet -> Manage Connections on the Options tab the 'Network Hotplugging' option is NOT selected.

I had a problem with (3) and was helped out here. Check out the other things too.

try the suggestions given and see how they go first of all. If u r still having problems u could try going to bios and seeing if plug and play is set to ON if so then u could try disabling it.
