network configuration problem
Posted on 2005-04-09
I have a small network. mixture of Win XP SP2, Win 98, and 1 Linux Mandrake 10 (just starting to learn it)
contacted through 8 port hub
Netcomm ADSL router modem contacted to hub, IP internal address 192.168.1.1, dynamic outer address
Win XP, named 01, IP address 192.168.1.2, DHCP assigned
Win XP, named 03, IP address 192.168.1.4, DHCP assigned
Win XP, named 05, IP address 192.168.1.6, DHCP assigned
Win 98, named 06, IP address 192.168.1.7, DHCP assigned
Linux box, named 02, IP address 192.168.1.2, DHCP assigned
The boxes running windows all network and access internet fine
Can't get Linux box to network or access internet, it was working accessing the internet, but I changed some thing some where (as I do when learning) and the internet access has stopped working, have never gotten networking to other boxes working to date, so I know the nic card works
Have used Mandrake Control Center / Network & Internet / New Connection wizard to re set up the networking but still can't get it working
Have spend days reading How To's and gotten no where.
Can someone help?
