No Internet Connection


I used Zenwalk a few years ago and thought I'd come back for 7.4. I installed from a thumb drive to my 32-bit Dell Optiplex GX520. The installaltion seemed to go seamlessly and did the bootup (I declined Lilo and used an old Grub 1 bootloader).
The icon for the ethernet whirls for a while, then stops with an "x" imposed on it, and I get a message that I'm disconnected. This happens again and again; as a result, I have no internet service.
Any suggestions?

What zenwalk uses for configuring and setting up for network?

You may have to setup internet first, it may not work by default.

Thanks for the reply. In setting up the network manually, I have to know the MAC number, it seems. How do I find that?

You can see mac number from this command:

Code:
ip l
E.g. MAC Numbers are df:bd:09:67:ae:23

I suppose this is a quirk since I had the same problem. It doesn't run dhcpcd while booting. I have to start it manually:
Code:
# /sbin/dhcpcd
Click that "network connection" icon, and it works. The only problem is you have to click it repeatedly if you're not web browsing. I guess the developers figured it'd be safer that way? Can't have your rig cracked if you're not connected. It's a minor annoyance.
