Hi, we are trying to add a linux box to our windows network to act a
We've got a small windows 98 workgroup (5 computers) tied together
through an ethernet hub. We all share a DSL modem, which goes into a
Linksys DSL router, then into the Uplink port of the hub. The router
acts as the DHCP Server, assigning IPs starting at 192.168.1.100. It
obtains its own IP automatically through our ISP. Its values are:
LAN IP: 192.168.1.1
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
WAN IP (Dynamic): 18.104.22.168
Subnet mask: 255.255.240.0
Default gateway: 22.214.171.124
Its setup has a place for Router name and Domain name, but they are
left blank (and still works).
We've got SuSE 6.3 installed on the linux box, and it loads up fine.
But it can't see the other computers or the Internet. I've gone
through various configurations using Yast, but nothing works.
In the Basic Network Configuration, I've set Number to Active, set
it to Ethernet (device eth0), and used AutoIP with BootP. In the
hardware setup, I set the eth0 to NE2000 (PCI) (I've got a RealTek
RTL8029, which isn't listed there but is shown as supported hardware at
the suse.com site).
Also, I changed Start_SMB to yes in the Change configuration file area.
What do the other menu items want?
Change host name...
Some items want a 'Domain name'. Does our LAN have such a thing? Do
we make one up somehow?
I've tried to include all the details I could, but there are some I
probably don't know about. Any assistance is appreciated in advance.
ps. After changing various settings in Yast, the system freezes
sometimes when updating all the files and I have to reboot.
