Please Help Slackware Noob With networking Problems
I have been Using Linux For The past 2 years I 've tried alot of diffrent distros and stumbled upon Slackware about 2 weeks ago. I havent had any problems with the other distros, as far as hardware and stuff everything i have is linux compatible.
Now to the problem! I have spent the last 2 weeks trying to get online with slackware and searching forums and guides to setting up my network devices. My knowledge of slackware is very limited, wich is what brings me here.
I have a netgear wg11v2 usb wireless card and connot get it to work properly on either of my installs of slack. one install is on my laptop wich is a chineese founder laptop. I cannot get the nic ethernet card to work either. I also have a tower with a via rhine II nic eithernet card. Same problem with both. Im using dual boot on the tower with slack and vista. My vista is setup to use internet connection sharing. from wirless (direct internet connection) to lan (internet for other comp). I did this to get internet on the laptop but was unsuccesful.
My for eth0 looks like this: (clean install i did use netconfig to during setup though Thats it)
# Config information for eth0
#Defaullt gateway IP address:
(which is the ip of my vista)
Any help would be appreciated
If more info is needed. i can obtain it.:banana:
