Fedora Networking Help
Hello Linux Friends,
As of today I am a newbie to the linux world, as I received a gift for a recent birthday of a book packaged with Fedora Core 1 However the book covers basics and not really troubleshooting.
I have had the excess parts from upgrades to build the system for a while and have been interested in learning to use linux. Thus you will find some hardware items less than current.
I have installed the Fedora Core 1 linux and packages that came with the guide and got as far as networking, I am on a network with 2 XP HE computers connected to a linksys BEFSR41 now on the XP boxes it's plug N surf..
I need help setting up fedora. The on board networking is detected its a VT(several numbers) Rhine II or to XP a VIA T10/100 Ethernet port, and it is shown in the network setup as eth0 it will not auto detect dhcp, it fails during boot and if I insert an ip i.e 192.168.102 and 255.255.255.0 and refresh It will show active and I can connect to the router setup, via 192.168.1.1 but not the internet.
I am working within gnome under the user account and yes have and know the root password, I know not square one what to do, and would appreciate a very newbie ish hand held walkthrough.
System info is as such:
Soyo KT333 dragon Plus Mobo
Onboard Intel Ethernet T10/100
Onboard CMedia Sound
AMD 1G Processor
512M DDR Ram
ATI Radeon 7000VE 64M AGP
Maxtor 13G HDD
Creative 52X CDROM
Linksys BEFSR41 v2 w/the latest firmaware installed.
Verizon DSL PPOE
Dynamic IP's change connection is maintained by the router.
The router is setup as a dhcop server for upto 3 Machines.
Thanks In Advance,
p.s To US residents have a good 4th weekend.
Solved by setting the gateway to 192.168.1.1
