    No internet... :(


    AI have installed Red Hat 9 on my computer.
    I wan t set up as a server and so far i got Apache, PHP and mysql configured properly...

    But now when i try to setup my internet connection I always hit a dead end.

    I have looked online and nothing seems to be doing the trick.
    I went looking at different things in redhat and, i dont know if this means anything,
    -but the "Network Device Control" has nothing in it.
    -when i try to use the Internet Connection Wizard, nothing works.
    - looked at Hardware Browser and nothign for networking...

    Can someone help me. I'm at my wits end.
    for additional info: I'm connected by cable modem to a linksys router.

    Please anyone

    Thanks in advance

    Can you post the output of this command: 'ifconfig' ?

    try this
    as root in a shell
    Code:
    ifconfig eth0 up
