    IP settings dont match


    I have recently installed DSLinux, i have very little knowledge of the operating system but i cannot connect to the internet i found that..

    Under: home/etc/resolv.conf

    I find that my DNS and IP address dont match my actual settings as on windows, but i cannot edit them to my settings.

    Im pretty sure this will solve my problem. Does anybody have any suggestions as to how i edit the settings or is there another way?

    I thought linux was to automatically detect Internet settings? Will i constantly have to change my ip settings every couple of days each time it address expires?

    Thanks Rick

    In terminal, type:
    Code:
    dhclient
    it will try to find DHCP server, and if successful, it will setup networking automatically.

    I thought you were talking about wired connection. I don't know if DSL has wireless drivers installed that would work with your NIC. Try using Ubuntu CD if you need wireless connection.
