Anyone here set up a DHCP ISP up with RH6?
anyone set up a cable modem, xDSL, or other leased line that uses DHCP to get network info in Linux? I'm wondering if I'm missing some little thing. I have an ADSL that I've been trying to set up in Linux for monthes with no success. My NIC was detected as a NE2000 clone during setup (it is) and ifconfig at the bash prompt shows all the correct info. Yet I cannot access the internet. An attempt to ping any server, even my ISPs DHCP or DNS servers, gives me an error message saying that the network is unreachable. I've set up the "hosts", "hosts.allow" and "hosts.deny" files correctly & entered my default gateway, yet still no go. I've checked all the MAC addresses, & they're all correct. I even bugged my ISP enough to begin the process of supporting Linux offically, and they've stated that any OS with an operable TCP/IP stack can use their service.
The HOWTO files are all out of date, so they've regretfully been of little use to me.
I'm wondering if theres some little thing that I've overlooked, some small option that needs to be set in order to get this to work.
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you can point me in the general direction of a good Linux guru, I'd be very grateful. Thanks.
