    trying to connect to LAN

    Hi guys this is my first post so go easy on me.
    I installed Mandrake 10.0 for the first time last night on an Intel Celeron 1.8ghz machine last night.

    Everything works fine accept...
    Im trying to get it to connect to the internet through my Netgear DG834 (ADSL modem\firewall\switch\router). To which I already have an XP machine running.

    When I boot up I get all Green OK's until eth0 which always fails?....
    I also get the (!) icon in the taskbar

    I cannot for the life of me get this thing to work..
    I select LAN at the connection setup menu and give all the information I have that it asks for....

    In my router config I have;
    IP Address
    IP SUBnet
    GAteway IP
    Domain Name

    Which I enter with no effect?

    The Network card is a Realtek 8139

    Is this a network driver problem or a internet settings problem?
    Linux seems to confuse the two from my point of view...

    Help appreciated...

    have you compared it with the settings on your XP machine? I had some issues with getting mine to work when trying to install suse but with mandrake it went quite smoothly, as far as i can remember..

    yes i have, although alot of the Linux menu's confuse me somewhat...
    As in Im not sure which value's i should be putting in some of them...
    The lights flash both on linux nic and netgear router but the routers software in "Attatched devices does not pick the linux machine up?...
