Hey there,

I'm a linux newbie, and I haven't got the slightest idea of how to connect my pc to the internet through my router? :roll:

With windows all i need is to have my network card obtain ip automatically but redhat seems to say that eth01 doesn't work.

any help on this matter would be great

IF the driver were installed properly when the boot up process is going it shopuld say
Bringing up interface eth0
then it will say ok or failed from there you know the thernet card is active

On boot up the eth0 fails, does this mean i should try to re-install the network card?

Yeah drivers or try a differen NIC that Linux sees i like to use d-links with linux but i am a n00b there may be some problems with that i have a DFE-530tx+ and linux sees that card fine. After you get the NIC up and running it really requires no configuration in the router and little if not any in the compter.

Right i've tried to re-install everything nut it still doesn't initialise so i'm going to try another NIC and see if this resolves the problem.

I'll keep you posted

I think it must be me, because I went out and bought the deling daff-530tx card and have installed it correctly because it is working through windows, I am sure of this because that is how I am typing this now, but I let red hat do the install and the card still fails to initialize because it is not being seen. Now with me being a completely novice to linux I haven't got the slightest idea of how to install the drivers manually and was hoping somebody could maybe tell me. I opened the .tar file and extracted the files to a temp file like the radome states but then I do not understand as it says to open the /lib/modules/KERNEL_VERSION/kernel/drivers/net/ and make the install????
:shock:
I am confused and desperately need help :oops:

Any response would be great

Right everything is sorted. I just re-installed Redhat9 with the new network card and everything has worked since. (now all I have to do is work out how to get my resolution to change 800x600 to something decent :roll: )

Thanks for your help
