Hi everyone. I'd like to thank you guys for all the help I've gotten, and please forgive me if I'm being irritating and asking too many questions. =) Okay. I'm using SuSE 9.1 and a NETGEAR router which is connected to an ethernet card in my computer, and the router is connected to my cable modem which links me to the internet. What happens is that when I load Linux, I cannot access the internet immediately, but I have to turn the router off and then back on for me to be able to access the internet. What gives? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
