slackware 3.5

ok I have read for 2 weeks till my eyes hurt trying to figure out why I can
not get an internet connection from my mediaone  cable provider it works
fine under win95 and 98 so I know all hardware is functional. I have tried
using <dhcpcd> I have tried using the standard rc.inet1 configuration. my
best luck has been with rc.inet1.... I recieve no errors on boot or in
var/log/syslog and I am able to ping my loopback and my own ip address. my
ifconfig and route-n reads as follows

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:127.0.0.1  Bcast:127.255.255.255  Mask:255.0.0.0

to me it all looks correct but still no connection, one of my questions
would be even if my 3c509b  ethernet card is seen on boot with all the
correct irq and I/O settings  is there any chance it still might be the
wrong driver in my kernal? or maybe something stiffleing my communications?
if i have left out any important info in describing my problem please let me
know and i will add it.

This wont be much help, however I have been trying for three weeks to do the
same thing.
I trien MANY versions of dhcpcd with same results. You dont mention which kernel
you are using but in the 2.0.35 kernel there is a new 3c509.c file in
linux/drivers/net. this solved some problems.
The simptions that you have are indicative of reaching your provider but not
being authenticated.

Is that a 3c509b or a 3c905b??  I know that with the 905b there have been all
sorts of problems trying to get it up and running in linux.  I would strongly
suggest getting the latest kernel or get the drivers from :
http://cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/linux/drivers/vortex.html

Another thing you might want to check first is the line that sets up your route
for the GW

you have:
0.0.0.0         24.131.56.1     0.0.0.0                 UG   1     0    1
eth0

in my setup I have:
default         24.112.72.1     0.0.0.0         UG    0      0      161 eth1

so you may want to try setting the default route like this:
route add default gw 24.131.56.1 eth0

Hope this helps!

Add the gateway and it should be fine.

Use a 95 station (with modem connected) and start,run,winipcfg to get gateway.

I use mediaone in Atlanta and that's what it took for me to get on.

 
 
 

1. Samba problem: WinXP <-> ADSL <-> Internet <-> Cable <-> Linux

Hi.  I've spent the past day trying to get a group
of computers accessing each others' shares with
little success.

I have two networks:

a) Windows XP and 98 machines behind a USB
    ADSL net connection.  The XP machine acts as
    the ICS host.

b) Linux (with Samba installed) and Windows XP
    machines behind a cable modem.

I want the machines on network 'a' to be able to
access the shares on the machines on network 'b',
as well as each machine appear in the XP/98
Network Places.

Each network is assigned a dynamic IP, but they're
mapped to static addresses thanks to no-ip.org, and
they're also (obviously) on different subnets.  I think I
understand that if I configure Linux as a WINS server
then NetBIOS over TCP/IP should allow those
machines on network 'a' to see those machines on
network 'b' through Network Places.

So far, I've had no success.  I can, however, see the
Linux shares from network 'a' via

  Net View <IP address of Linux box>

but a call to smbclient -L <some machine on net 'a'>
fails with "Connection to <machine> failed".

Could anyone *please* help me resolve this problem?
I would greatly appreciate any feedback that *anyone*
could give.
