Problems getting online in Slackware
I've recently chosen to go back to using Slackware 9.1 after testing various other distros, and now I'm running into some problems connecting to the internet. I dual boot WinXP Pro and Slackware 9.1 and I can get online in Windows just fine, but when I try to on slack.... I have ran netconfig a few times using different settings, none of which work; I have set it to use dhcp and i've even tried static but neither work. I think the problem may be the new Linksys 802.11g router that I just put in. This computer used to connect directly to the modem but now it goes through the router (through one of the switch ports, not wirelessly). I have checked ifconfig to make sure everything is running (it isn't) and I've checked lsmod to make sure everything is recognized (it is). I have a Realtek (8139too) and a 3com (either 3c59x or tulip) card installed. If you have any ideas, please tell me. I can also provide more information if needed.

Ok, first point to keep in mind is your not connecting to the net, were connecting to a network and that will connect us to the net. post the output of ifconfig here and well start there. Unless you know that it shows nothing other than the localloopback address.
