I've just installed LinuxPPC 2000 on my PowerMac 7500, and have made
setting up my net connection my first priority. I have a cable modem
via my ethernet port, configured using DHCP.
My problem is that I seem to get allocated an IP address just fine
(according to 'ifconfig') and when I ping my own IP I get fine results.
But pinging anything outside, including my ISP's name servers gets no
response at all. The HOW-TOs I've read seem to indicate that this is a
If so, I don't know how to set up routing properly. The Routing tab
of 'netcfg' is blank. I seem to get allocated an IP address at boot
time, though for some reason the name server addresses I had originally
specified become slightly different, so from what I understand, dhcpcd
or whatever it's called, is finding it's own name servers.
Does any of this make sense to anyone? My conf files look the HOW-TO
files say they should, as does the result of the 'ifconfig' command.
But pinging (and everything else) just doesn't work.
Huge thanks in advance,
