Posted by: cloudr1 Nov 5 2002, 06:33 AM

i just installed mandrake linux 9.0 everything works perfectly except my internet connection won't work.
i used the connection manager in mandrake control center and thought i set it up successfuly but when i tried to dial it dials up and i thought it all worked but it tells me i'm not connected but there is a little box in the bar(i use KDE) down the bottom with that has all the usual stuff and gives me the option to see details or disconnect.
so i tried to use mozilla but it comes up with an error mesage saying it can't find the host.
someone please help me ireally need help

Go through the internet connection manager again, it should work, the only error could be human error, because Mandrake 8.2 (distro im using) is rock-solid when it comes to connection, so 9.0 should be good.... go through it again. also, we need more info, how about kind of connection, ISP etc
