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..
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?
In terminal, type:
it will try to find DHCP server, and if successful, it will setup networking automatically.
thanks mate, i have security on my wireless internet though. how do i go about entering it?
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.
ahhh thanks mate, ill get right on it.
