help getting internet working in Vector with usb ethernet
I installed Vector Linux on an old box of mine. I like it so much as an alternative to win 98 on old boxes that I ordered a retail copy. ;)
I am using a netgear usb ethernet adapter. It then connects to my router. I have used this before on win 98 and I know it works fine. Anyway, when I run the network configuration in Vector, it seems to detect everything fine, or so it says. When I start the system it even makes note of the fact that it needs the module for it and starts it up. I then log in and can't connect to the internet. I can't even ping my router.
I was able to use the ifconfig command and it produced this:
also, when I run /sbin/lspci, it shows my usb controller so I know it recognizes my usb.
Link encap:Logical Loopback

thanks in advance, if I can get internet working, it will be all set.
