    Hi, i am new in Slackware (i came from debian/ubuntu) i just install slack 11 in my pc, btw the installer is the best one i ever see .
    My problem is my network configuration, wont work
    the module seems ok, right?
    lsmod
    Module Size Used by Not tainted
    soundcore 3300 0 (autoclean)
    8139too 13672 1
    mii 2304 0 [8139too]
    crc32 2880 0 [8139too]
    pcmcia_core 39492 0
    ntfs 50848 2 (autoclean)
    ide-scsi 9392 0
    agpgart 45092 0 (unused)
    I use netconfig to set up (static IP, tried the dhcp but don/t work either)
    hostame: Slackware
    domain: (i leave it black this one)
    My ip- 192.168.1.3
    Netmask: 255.25.25.0
    GW: 192.168.1.1
    name server 200.51.xxx.x my primary ISP DNS

    stoped and restartes rc.inet1 many many timesm tries many changes in the configuration but nothing, i can ping my own ip.
    I read this forum and i try to do it manually, but i get a error doing this
    #ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.3 #if this is your IP
    #ifconfig -a #should show new IP

    #route add default gw 192.168.1.1 #your gateway IP
    #route -n #should show a gw for eth0
    ifconfig -a
