Okay, I am Mandrake newbie. I have no luck getting answers anywhere else but here, so I thought I would post the question on Linuxhelp.com. I searched for this problem and I am having a hard time with it.

Here is the deal. I installed 9.2 and it found my network card. I tried to get online via a DLink router hooked up to a cable modem.

I went into the DrakConnect section and tried to set up my connection automatically. I still can't get online.

On the same machine I have WinXP installed and the connection works fine....

okay here is what it says when I type in ifconfig

Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask 255.0.0.0
UP LOOKBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX Packets:1034 errors:0 dropped:0 ovverruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:1034 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
rx bytes:64368 (62.8k) TX bytes:64368 (62.8k)


Any ideas?

Thanks again!

I do not know what to do to solve this problem but i saw a guide on how to setup a cable modem on this site. The address is http://www.linuxhelp.ca/guides/cablemodem/

Good Luck Hopefully this will help.

Shouldn't I be able to use it with a router and connect to my lan?

I thought it tried to do it an automatic way or something like that.
