Puppy can't connect to internet
First off, I am a total noob when it comes to puppy/linux, so I'd appreciate any help you can provide!
I tried v2.00 but never could get it to see my USB devices, sound or internet. I tried 2.02 and everything is solved except the internet issue. Here is what I can relate:
The setup wizard correctly sees that I have an Nvidia mobo/ethernet chip and installs the nvidia driver. Upon testing, it says it finds the network. Auto DHCP never works, so I called up my NETGEAR router manager, switched it to static IP and wrote down all the IP adresses. Booted back into Puppy, selected the static IP option in the wizard, entered all the correct ip settings but still does not connect. When I try to call up a webpage (google) it tales about 30 seconds and I get a "DNS cannot solve google" message.
