    Internet connection problem


    PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO ONE HAS ANSWERD MY QUESTION!!!!!!!! PLEASE HELP!!! OK ok I'll say it (I AM A NOOBY!!) so help me!!! I have a pci Network adapter. I've tried "netconfig" well I ran it that is, and I think I got it setup right. However my "ifconfig" file did NOT have the first part with the "eth0" part it just had the "lo" part. My computer connects to a router and the router is conected to a DSL modem, however Slackware will not see any thing on the network. And heres what "lspci" said about my card "00:14.0 3Com Corporation 3c905C - TX/TX-M [Tornado] ( rev 78 ) " I think it's not seeing my network card right but I don't know what I'm doing so, if you could help me that would be great.

    I know I already posted I message alot like this for helping some one else, but I decided to just have them install "Kubuntu", I picked it back up again "the thread that is" but no one replied, so I started this one.

    dunno for sure, but things like netcardconfig come to mind... it sounds like for whatever reason its not seeing your card properly

    this is the output of "ifconfig -a"

    lo Link encap:Local Loopback
    inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
    UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
    RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

    this is the output of "netstat -rn"

    Kernel IP routing table
    Destination || Gateway|| Genmask || Flags || MSS Window || irtt Iface
    127.0.0.0 ||| 0.0.0.0 ||| 255.0.0.0 || U ||||||||| 0 0 |||||||||| 0 lo

    I add these "||" because this site does not let you put more than one space inbetween words.

    The 2.6 kernel has support for your card but I'm not sure about the 2.4.x kernel that Slack uses by default, try updating your kernel to 2.6.x, it will be much better

    This is good advice, however I don't know if this advice matches the OP's skills. Carlwatkins, please make good backups before you upgrade your kernel.

    In reply to jweekley1, thank you! I see that mine is not the same as yours which helps, but I need to know how to fix it, it sounds like I need to upgrade my kernel, but Freston is right I don't realy know how to do that. So if you people could tell me how thats done, it would be great. thanks
