    No internet.


    Hey, I just installed Slackware linux successfully. However, I don't have any access to the internet. I am behind a Linksys Wireless-G router (I am on a wired connection though). I tried running the "netconfig" command in terminal and configured my internet but I had no luck. With other linux distros I have been able to just install the OS, reboot, and I had internet. I have internet on my Windoze partition so I know it is something with Slackware.

    Also I skipped the network setup step during the install because I figured I could just do that later.

    Is there some sort of driver I have to install?

    This is my motherboard, I use the onboard network socket:
    Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3 LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

    Welcome to slackware

    You have to start the module open bash and type the following:
    su
    /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 start

    That should get you going.
