How to configure CentOS 5.5 network
Posted on 2011-03-21
I have a CentOS 5.5 server which is connected to a wireless router's Ethernet port. The wireless router has an IP 192.168.1.1, and is connected to an ADSL modem which then is connected to the Internet service provider.
I don't have a static IP assigned, but DHCP. I used tracert command and find that the dynamically assigned IP is xxx.xx.120.21.
All windows laptops and desktops are smoothly connected to the wireless router at the moment, meaning the Internet is working.
The CentOS server is not network pre-configured when shipped here. I want to configure the server to connect to Internet. How can I do it? I was told to use SETUP command, which seems a little bit difficult as I am new to CentOS.
Is there a way around?
