I'm pretty sure this is an easy question, but here it goes.
I just got an ADSL connection to the internet. The connection comes into the ADSL modem, then to a hub which is connected to a Win98 computer and my Linux box. I am running RedHat 6.1, and I am using a 3COM 3c509 ethernet card. Here's the problem. The ADSL modem has an ip in the 10.129.x.x range, the win98 computer has an ip in the 142.59.x.x range. with my current configuration, I can ping the win98 machine, but I can't ping the modem. if I leave out my nameserver info, then I am assigned an ip in the same range as the modem instead of the win98 machines range. I think that DHCP is working because I get back a few domain names in netcfg that weren't there before...why can't I get this to connect to the internet? The information I am given is scarce. I was told the DNS numbers, the domain, and the host. My configuration is comparable to the win98 box, but something's not clicking.
