Mandrake 10.1 Network Problems (Beginner)
I recently installed Mandrake 10.1, but am having some difficulty setting up my network. I have a dynamic ip adress, and a linksys wireless g router (WRT54G), my computer is near the router and therefore is hardwired to it, using the onboard ethernet port with my MSI K8N Neo Platinum (NF3 250 chipset i believe). I tried configuring the router using DHCP but it doesn't think I am connected. I did it manually using an IP adress of 192.168.1.110, Subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, and default gateway of 192.168.0.1, and it said i was connected but i had no interenet, and could not ping 192.168.0.1 (also it still said connected after i unplugged the ethernet cable). I have the drivers for my chipset, however if i try to insall it it says the software is already installed. also i have tulip.c, but am not exactly sure what to do with it. do i need to download a compiler and compile it? I renamed it tulip.rpm, but got the same message as with the chipset (said was already installed). Am i missing something? Any help appreciated.
