walk me through setting up an internet connection
Address type: assigned by DHCP
Knowing this I boot up my mandrake 9.0(yes outdated but I'm stuck with it untill I get a new cd burner) I go into the control panal thing and open up the network connections into the wizard.
The wizard says...
1) Connection type
I check adsl and lan (I think)
d)wirespeed usb or sumthin like that (I forget the exact item)
3)Ask me if I have any other ethernet card things and I click no
IP address(i put 192.168.1.100) the internal ip or should I put the IP 2 my router (184.108.40.206)
Netmask: I'm assuming this is 255.255.255.0
Auto IP should I click this or not
5)Ask me my hostname
I went to www.ipchicken.com and it said sumthin like this under name address
is this it?
then it asks to set up proxies
I have no clue on how to find these or configure these so I leave them blank.
Sorry for asking so many questions but I hate windows and wanna learn linux but its hard without an internet connection in linux. Any input would be appreciated and thanks for whoever actually read my whole post.
1) Choose LAN
2) Choose DHCP
4) Auto-IP (this *should* be checked already)
5) Set your hostname to whatever you want it to be. This is basically the name of your computer."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."
