    Configure network with Mandrake

    Hi, I hope, that someone can help me.....

    I'm using Mandrake 9.1 Beta 2 and I wanna configure my network card for the net.

    The card is on the mobo and it's detected by the linux system.

    But I cannot get into the net.

    I'm using a adsl router with:
    the internal ip: 192.168.1.1
    the gateway is: 192.168.1.1
    the dns is: 192.168.1.1
    the subnetmask is: 255.255.255.0


    The computer, which has linux on it should have the ip:
    192.168.1.3

    I have the same configuration for windows onto 2 other computers, (192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.3)

    But I have big problems to get mandrake into the net

    I've started this inet configuration manager and have configured
    the access over the lan to the net, but it doesn't work


    PLEASE HELP ME

    Use netconfig() to configurate a network, what's the proble?
    Run the command: netconfig on the shell as (#) root.

    Or configure by yourself:
    ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.3 netmask 255.255.255.0

    you have an internal gateway and internal ip as the sam thing? i dont think that is right. the internal gateway should be the same as the ip on the computer actully hooked to the internet. shouldnt it?

    no it's not.....

    The ip of the router is the dns and gateway in my network


    But I have still problems with configuration....


    I've tried the configuration program in the Mandrake control center..

    Network / Network Config

    Have used the assistant......

    The same things:
    lan....
    ip: 192.168.1.3
    dns: 192.168.1.1
    gateway: 192.168.1.1



    But it doesn't work

    The control center shows me under network -> network configuration:

    device: eth0
    IP: HERE IS NOTHING??? STRANGE
    Protocol: static
    driver: sis 900
    status: up

    if i press on the connect button, it doesn't work...

    I'm a total newbie to linux, so I don't know how to use netconfig()

    I've used the command line:

    #root: TYPED netconfig()
    > AND HERE I DUNNO WHAT I SHOULD TYPE

    And I also don't know, where I can set the ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.3 netmask 255.255.255.0 stuff

    PLEASE HELP ME


    I have the same configuration on windows computers (different ips) and they have access to the net......

    SO THE IP, NETMASK, DNS, GATEWAY IS OK

    BUT I dunno, how to config it....

    And I also don't know, where I can set the ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.3 netmask 255.255.255.0 stuff
    On the terminal as root (#).

    And then check if it's all ok:
    ifconfig
    this should tell you the stats.

    Before I've read ur answer, I've found something on the net:


    Rebootet my computer and set this:
    now i gonna use 192.168.1.2 as my ip

    and typed this: (root#)

    ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 up

    and

    route add default gw 192.168.1.1 eth0

    after it tested
    netstat -r

    There were:
    192.168.1.0
    127.0.0.1
    and finally:
    192.168.1.2

    after it tested:

    ifconfig -a

    The config was o.k.


    I've tried after it to access my router and to access the net but ...

    and tried to access again.... but it doesn't work....

    Let me understand, you configured the ethernet card, right?
    Now you want to connect to the internet, adsl, your adsl, is PPPOE, PPTP? what?

    Can you give us more info?

    I have configured the network card.
    I wanna access the net over the network using a router.....
    the router is an adsl router

    So, I don't need pppoe/pptp..........

    I want just to config the network (card) that I can access other computer, so I can access the router and the net....

    You should try looking an How-To.
    This is the best way, try searching DSL-HOWTO.
