Connecting my Linux box to the internet
I have just installed Red Hat Linux on one of my old computers so I can see how to use it and what features it has got! However I am having some trouble connecting this to the Internet.
I currently have an NTL set top box which is connected to a wireless hub and we have 3 laptops running of this hub (all wireless connections and running Windows XP)
I have connected my Linux box to this hub through the Ethernet port. Ive tried to set up the Internet on my Linux box, I used the wizard, choosing an Ethernet connection and then the appropriate hardware but when I try to activate my connection it cannot determine an IP address.
Should I be able to set this manually?
Im not familiar with the Red Hat GNOME so please try and explain anything is simply as possible!! lol!
Thanks a lot!
