first off i am running slackware 10 and its connected to a signamax switch, and it will not connect to the internet, its really starting to get on my nerves. at one point yes it could connect but now it will not and i have tried switching out switches already...nothing, but i have very little experience in linux so i pretty much ran i out of things to try, oh and i also tried making sure there wasn't a proxy set up and there wasnt so thats as far as i got (sorry about the punctuation, it takes to much time to use it correctly)
