After installing linux on my pIII 450 with 256MB ram etc I
cannot see the ethernet that my computer can see under windows. I have all the correct numbers, IP, netmask,
gateway, network, broadcast, dns 1,2 etc and host name, domain etc
I have a 3com combo netcard, 3c900-combo and this is using
the module 3c59x under linux but I cannot see the network.
I can ping my own IP address but when I try and ping
anyone else the message i get is 'network unreachable'
I have tried the netconf prog, editing my network file,
resolv.conf file, net-scripts files etc ....
also if i type ifconfig eth0 myip netmask no up the whole system locks up and does not work.
At present I am using redhat-mandrake 6.1 but I have the
same problem with redhat 6.1
Please help, I am new to linux and like it very much... except for this.
