Network Problem


I installed slackware version 10.2, but there is a serious network problem that i cant fix.My modem is in router mode and is always conected, there is a switch that share the link to two computers. My computer has a network card ( Marvel Yukon ) thatare linked to the switch, but i cant find the routerīs page neither surf in the web. I already searched in the internet, and find that is 2 ways to configure the network card in Linux:
editing /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf or by netconfig and especifying the Ip adress ( 192.168.1.2 ), the netmask ( 255.255.255.0 ), the DNSīs servers ( 200.149.50.140 and 200.165.132.147 ) and the default gateway 192.168.1.1 . PS : the dhcp is desativated on modemīs configuration
But nothing got changed, i couldnt connect to any site, or even ping my gateway. I was thinking :
If i can connect normally in Mandriva or Windows XP, why not in Slackware? There is a extra block from slackware to network ? Why cant i find my modem pageīs ( gateway, 192.168.1.1 ) ?
Thanks and sorry for the bad english!

are you sure slackware is recognizing your NIC?

check lspci and mii-tool

you can also use netconfig to set the network up

please post the output of the following commands:
Code:
lspci
lsmod
dmesg | grep ^eth
perhaps you need to recompile your kernel with a proper module.

Edit: i forgot your slackware's not working yet. you can send the output to a file by appending ' >> outputfile' to the command. move the file to a windows disk like a fat32 fs, then open the file in windows.

sorry if i'm asking too much. but anyhow perhaps you just need to compile your kernel.

i don't know if this is the driver that can handle your ethernet card. anyway just try it.

Code:
modprobe sk98lin
the directory /proc/net/sk98lin/ should appear. take a look at that directory.

if that won't work i suggest you recompile your kernel with that driver. you can get the kernel sources in slackware/k directory (2.4 kernel) or testing/packages (2.6 kernel) of your slacware cd.

if you don't know how to compile your kernel you can read this howto. it's an easy guide:
http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO/Kernel-HOWTO.html

you can also read this documentation about sk98lin in http://www.cs.fsu.edu/~baker/devices...ng/sk98lin.txt or from the file '/usr/src/linux-<version>/Documentation/networking/sk98lin.txt'
