I just installed Redhat 9.0 and I cant for the life of me figure out how to get it on the internet. I connect to the internet using a D-Link router and a Sis 900 ethernet card. The card has been recoginized by linux and i can ping myself (127.0.0.1) and nothing else, so the problem seems to be that it cant communicate with my router. Im not sure if this is relevent but i am dual booting with Windows XP, and the internet works fine on the windows part. Thanks for any help.

What is the output of the command:

ifconfig

Does it say something like this:
CODE

         inet addr:192.168.0.2  Bcast:192.168.0.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

127.0.0.1 is the loopback address ... you should have also an eth0 address from your router.

when I type in ifconfig i tells me command not found just like if i had typed in jibberish. Do i need to be in a specific directory or did I not install some part of the distribution?

Strike that last reply. When i use ifconfig i get pretty much the same thing as posted but the memory part is not listed and the base address is 0xa000. All the ip information included is what it should be.

What is the output of the command:

route -n

Should look something like this:

CODE
route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
192.168.0.0     0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0   U     0      0        0 eth0
127.0.0.0       0.0.0.0         255.0.0.0           U     0      0        0     lo
0.0.0.0         192.168.0.1    0.0.0.0             UG    0      0        0    eth0

The output of route -n is now exactly what is posted. still nothing. Still cant even ping the router.

try temporarily turning of the iptables firewall ... if that works, we might need to reconfigure the firewall.

/etc/init.d/iptables stop

For some reason of another, iptables stop didn't work as a command so what i did was iptables --flush which cleared out all the rules. This did not fix the problem. Hopefully i didnt make it worse by throwing out all the rules.
