network not working
Hi! I am a linux noob so please have patience with me.:(
I can't get my network to work at all.
I have a Win XP server with ICS and tried to set up the linux (Vector Linux ) as client. It seems that it doesnt work with DHCP so I have to put in a static IP . It does not work, not even a ping!
I have a integrated network adapter (UliM526), I dont know if its driver is the source of the problem. The computer with Linux has dualboot with windows and the internet works fine there.
Please help me make my internet work...
What do you get when you type ifconfig as root into a terminal?
I fixed it by swiching to Mepis :D .I spent already too much time on this. Anyway, thanx alot for trying to help! :)
All right, happy to have another Mepis user!
