Having serious problems setting up the network
I'm having an awful time trying to get my latest Slackware installation being able to access the internet. I've had no trouble in the past.
I'm just wondering if my networking card is compatible? I have an Asus Maximus Formula DDR2 mobo using the default inbuilt two ethernet ports. Windows XP (in my other partition) says that I have no problems with it (dxdiag) and I can access the internet fine. System Information tells me that I have a  1394 Net Adapter and that its type is Ethernet 802.3 and that it is installed. There are also a load more things underneath that one that look pretty much the same.
Just to clarify, this is wired, not wireless.
Can you post the output of these?
ifconfig -a -v
ls -l /etc/rc.d/rc.inet*Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
Thanks very much for the reply!
I'm not sure how to paste the text with internet not working. I normally just select the text and then middle click... any suggestions?
Ah! Very good question, it didn't occur to me. Welcome to the wonderful world of I/O redirection.
I assume you dual boot between Slack and Windows. I also assume you know how to reach your Windows partition from within Slackware. Let's just say that you have mounted your Windows partition on /mnt/drive_c
If you type this:
lspci > lspci.output
A more direct approach would be something like this:
lspci > /mnt/drive_c/My\ Documents/Linux\ related\ files/lspci.output
ls -l /etc/rc.d/rc.inet* > /path/ls.output
There is a lot more to say on the subject, but for now you can copy the files containing the output to your Windows partition... reboot to Windows and copy&paste again.Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
Wow! Thank you sooo much for the detailed reply... It's really kind of you to go to so much trouble! I'll reboot and do that now. I'll make my Windows Partition a FAT32 rather than NTFS to reduce trouble in that area.
Thanks very much again!
EDIT: Sorry, decided to write the stuff to a floppy for the sake of ease and data security and found that my cable's broken lol. I'll go down into the garage and stick another one in for tommorrow. Thanks again! Matt.
Sorry about the delay.... I had some problems with the floppy drive but all fixed now and thank you again for the detailedness of your posts so far...
Here are all the outputs. I hope it is OK that there is a lack of line breaks; I can redo them if more clarity is needed:

ping -c 4 -I eth0 www.google.com # to force the machine to use eth0
If not, then
/etc/rc.d/rc.inetd restart /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 restart
If you can do the same as before with the messages? Run them 'for yourself' and once with the > /path/filename for posting here.Can't tell an OS by it's GUI
Thanks very much! I'll reboot and do those now.
Thanks very much again and thanks for commenting the commands so I know what's going on!
Pinging localhost.... I transmit and receive 4 packets with 0% packet loss in 3003ms. The full thing is below:
PING localhost (127.0.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.018 ms 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.012 ms 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.012 ms 64 bytes from localhost (127.0.0.1): icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.011 ms --- localhost ping statistics --- 4 packets transmitted, 4 received, 0% packet loss, time 3003ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.011/0.013/0.018/0.003 ms
Thanks very much again and any input would be very much appreciated!

Change the cable to the other port
No I dunno why it's doing this. You have two ports but it's showing only one. Where is eth1? Why does it say it's up when it's not and where did it then obtain an IP address??
You know, if it was down you'd say 'up', if it was defaulting to the wrong port you'd change the default port, and if it couldn't get an address you'd look at configuration files...
...I always find in a situation like this that by making assumptions I'm overlooking something obvious. Follow the most easy howto you can find on connecting to the Internet and find the place where it starts failing. And if that doesn't work try the gentoo-wiki. That is one excellent resource that deserves all our praise.
