    Need Help Configuring Networking


    I installed Debian 3.0 and KDE but having trouble configuring the network part of it. This is what I get when I typed
    Code:
    ifconfig
    Link encap: Local Loopback
    inet addr: 127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
    UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:3924 Metric:1
    RX packets:10 errors:0 dropped:. overruns:0 frames:0
    TX packets:10 errors:0 dropped:. overruns:0 carrier:0
    collissions:0 txqueuelen:0
    RX bytes: 500 (500.0 b) TX bytes: 500 (500.0 b)

    My router is on DHCP mode. Appreciate any help.

    Thanks.

    Your Network card is not listed. Make sure you are starting it at boot. Once you start it, I bet you will have no problems getting an IP from your DHCP.

    If you want to provide more information I can try and help.

    What hardware?

    I took out the card and it is a 3Com Fast EtherLink XL PCI.

    you might have to install the 2.6 kernel to get that to work properly, consider

    apt-get update && apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.8-2-686-smp

    (if you have a Pentium Pro/Celeron/PII/PIII/P4 and want SMP support) otherwise

    apt-cache search kernel-image

    pick and install the proper one.
