Full Version: Help With Redhat 9
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

I am a extremely new user to Linux. I have managed to install Redhat 9 on my computer and that is about the degree of skill that I have. I can not get the linux system to connect to the internet. The system shows that it reads my ethernet card however it will not activate. It responds with the following error message:

Determining IP information for eth0:1...iptables: No chain/target/match by that name
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Cannot assign requested address
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Cannot assign requested address
iptables: Bad rule (does a matching rule exist in tha chain?)

As I said I am very inexperienced with Linux however, I think this may be an IRQ problem. Can anyone tell me if I am right and if so how in the world I fix it. ANY help would be appreciated.

How are you connecting to the internet? You said either net but what are you plugging into? Cable modem, DSL, LAN?
I am attempting to use an ethernet connection from a cable modem. I am running it through a Linksys router, but have tried it straight from the cable modem and get the same result. The computer is an older Micron with a Realtec ethernet card. The card is supported by Linux and is recongnized by the machine, but I think it is trying to use the same IRQ as the firewire card. I know just enough about computers to be very dangerous and am going crazy trying to get this set up.
try turning off your iptables and then try to restart the network card...

/etc/init.d/iptables stop
/etc/init.d/network restart
tried the stop the iptables and then restart the network and it didn't work. Thanks for the try anyway. Any other suggestions? I'm sure it's a simple fix but my simple mind can't seem to figure it out.
Where in TN are you? I'm in Smyrna and I'm having trouble getting on the internet also, but with dial up. Maybe we can try to help each other out! My name is Mike.
