Mandrake Box Can't See Linksys Router
I have a Mandrake 10.1 desktop and I want to use a Linksys WRT54GL router in my home and as a gateway through my DSL modem to the Internet.
I have a wired Ethernet connection between the desktop and the router. But the desktop cannot "see" the router. My ISP told me I have a static IP, but that I should initially contact the router using DHCP to configure the router.
I think I may be doing something wrong in creating/specifying the necessary DHCP connection.
