    Starting to install: Internet problem


    I can't use the internet in Gentoo. I don't have a network card, I have an onboard connection. Gentoo sees it though. I run 'ifconfig' and it seems to be working. I cannot ping websites however. I can ping others on my LAN using 127.xx.xxx.xxx but not with 192.168.0.1. I am using a D-Link router and it has DHCP enabled on it. When I use 'links' in Gentoo, I cannot connect to any host. I'm not exactly sure what to do. I read the documentation and I think I did everything.

    Dude, that was a quick reply. I'm going to boot up into Gentoo and try it. Thanks!

    I'm using thr LiveCD universal.
    'dhclient eth0' didn't work. It said there was no dhclient command.
    I assume 'su -' & 'ifconfig eth0' both worked as they did not give me any errors.

    okay, good
    then instead of "dhclient" do:
    Code:
    dhcpcd eth0
