    Cable internet connection problem


    Hey all, when people say they are a newbie it still dont cut how new i am to this. Basically i have very little knowledge but am eager to learn, which means visitring sites to do with Mandrake but this is whewre the problem comes. I installed 10.1 but for some reason it will not connect to the internet. I have put in all my information in the config for making a new network but when i open Firefox it just will not have it.

    It recognises my NIC because its name comes up in the dropdown box. I am at a loss and being a noob i am still unsure of all the, what i assume is coding, in the terminals to make things work. Please dont laugh too hard as my poor embarressed ears might hear you.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    Jimi
