lose ethernet connectivity after installation !
hi all, sorry i'm new to linux so this might sound dumb
I installed mandrake 10.1 on my laptop to dual boot with xp. Installation was a breeze and apparently i had connectivity because the installer connected to the internet and downloaded the updates. But now that i'm in Mandrake i cant connect to the internet. My ethernet eth1 setting shows almost everything in the set up including the ip address and nameservers and all (i didnt have to input anything) i am in duke and have a lan connection. My net monitor shows some traffic both ways but says there is no connection at eth1 (or anything else i try to set up, i'm running on intel centrino and have wireless which doesnt connect on linux either but i'm not worrying about that yet).
do i have to input any parameter manually to get a setup? how do i get my self on the net? there must be some easy way because it is just the regual lan ethernet.
please help. any advice would be welcome.
ps. somewhere else in this forum someone was asked to read out their ifcfg on eth1 from network scripting folder here's what it says for me
ifconfig apparently does not work on my shell what is the linux mandrake equivalent of ipconfig in xp (or ifconfig in any other shell i was used to ?)
lost connectivity after security update
I had a similiar problem, but it seems to be solved.
I am working on Mandrake 10.0 and everything, inlcuding connecting to the internet was working fine. This morning I decided to install all existing bug fixes and updates. After having rebooted, I couldn't connect to the internet anymore.
Apparantly I had installed the firewall 'shorewall', since after typing 'shorewall stop' in a root console, the problem was solved and I regained internet access.
Probably this isn't the safest way, but if it works, at least you know what to look for.
