Internet Connection Problem
hi all, i have seen this post from many fellow opensuse10.2-users, but havent found a solution for my problem. can anyone help me out? I use Mandriva Spring 2007 free edition and the problem is, i have a cable internet connection from a provider called Hathway(India). im using RealTek ehternet card with RTL8139 family lan card. The information i have with me include: an IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, DNS server addr,alternate DNS. i dont have any username or password. I have installed Mandriva Spring, i have selected network card. later in the 'Add' section i have added the RTL813d card which was visible. i have selected 'ethernet' and given the IP, subnet mask, gateway. ther was something on DNS in which i filled the DNS info. i clicked on 'finish'. but nothing happened. no connection. Please please help me. please let me know in steps if anyone has done this.
