newbie networking question
Im pretty new to Mandrake 10.0 but think I know most of the basics. I am now trying to get the internet installed I have just signed up to Broadband and need to share the connection with a Win98 PC. I have bought a netgear 834 router.
I have a ethernet card installed on boot up eth0 says failed, when I have nothing plugged in, and just hangs if I plug the router in.
I am a total newbie when it comes to networking and is the first time I have looked into it.
I have done a lot of searching but a lot of what I have found is way over my head.
Can any one point me in the right direction for some basic networking information and what I need to do to get this set up.
