VL won't access internet
« on: December 09, 2011, 09:16:50 pm »

I just installed VL7 and it seemed to install fine, and I have a dual boot with Windows 7 and VL will not access the internet with either browser but Windows works perfectly. I was thinking it might be a driver for the LAN connector but I'm starting to doubt it. It's a new board with a Z68 chipset. I'm at a complete loss and I hope someone might have a clue. Thanks for any help you can give. ???

The chipset you mention is for the processor. Please reply with the
ethernet chipset.

You can use as root this command:

lspci

then look for ethernet or you can look at the
documentation for your motherboard.

This ethernet card should be supported out of the box.

Please post the output of this coomand which needs to be run as root:

ifconfig

I have that card and I am running VL 7.0 installed, not the live version. It worked out of the box. The only problem I had was with the router between my computer and the dsl. VL wanted to use the router for the default gateway (192.168.1.6). So I have to manually put the default gateway in as (192.168.1.1) which is the address of the dsl. Also my card is (rev 02).

Nightshift, please do not hijack another persons thread.

You can add the default gateway in /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf

    Had no intention of hijacking another persons post! I know enough how to change a default gateway as well as set up a static ip. I suggest you read a post rather than criticize people.

nightshift,

I did read the post. It appeared to me to be a question. It was not a criticism. It was
a request that's all.
