    Hi all willing to help
    I have Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI. I'm using Slackware 9.1
    and i'm havig problem connecting to the internet through my lan card

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:FC:F9:9B:48
    inet addr:172.16.*.* Bcast:172.16.255.255 Mask:255.255.*.*

    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:4283287 (4.0 Mb) TX bytes:43565 (42.5 Kb)

    Firstly of all...

    can you ping anything (your default gateway would be a good choice)
    because if you can, then the device is at least working.

    to visit webpages you need to configure resolv.conf

    this is easily done, just add

    nameserver 1.2.3.4

    where 1.2.3.4 is the IP to your DNS-server...

    if you can't ping anything, then the problem is probably the device though

    /ooop

    Error msg:

    The lisa daemon does not appear to be running.
    In order to use the LAN Browser the lisa daemon must be installed and activated by the system administrator.

    the thing is that i am the sys admin and i configured lisa
