Do you have a dhcp-client running on your linux box? If so, does it get an
IP from your airport?
Or is this your problem? There are several dhcp-clients in the mandrake
package and you can just search for dhcp to find and install one.
i also think Mandrake gives you a pretty script to configure things through
If this isn't the problem, does the airport provide just an IP or do you
also get auto-assigned dns numbers? If not, you probably just don't have
your dns pointers configured properly.
