    10.1:Cable modem detected, but no internet connection


    Hi,
    I'm from India. A little new to linux, though i have tried RH9 and Suse9 before. Now i have Mandrake 10.1 Official. It is the best i've seen till now....

    One small problem... i cant connect to the internet. I have a cable modem (64kbps unlimited connection). Mandrake has detected my network card (VIA VT6105 RhineIII Fast Ethernet Adapter)it seems. but nothing else works... I have a Pentium III, 669 Mhz,PC woth 256 MB RAM and Intel 810 chipset.
    As was asked in some of the posts, here're the results of giving the foll: commands...

    ifconfig -a gave:

    Code:
    [root@localhost narayana]# ifconfig -a

    Another thing, maybe not related to this... during boot, i get
    Briging up interface eth0 :[OK]
    and during shutdown, i get
    Shutting down NMB services :[FAILED]

    Please help.Thanks.
