LINUX Internet connection (NEWBIE)

February 23, 2005 at 12:51:06
Specs: Fedora Core 3, AMD/1GB

I am new to Linux. I have Yukon gigabit ETH0 that is active. I can see and interact with the home network (windows pc's), but I can not connect to the Internet.

I have a cable modem connected to a router all pc's are connected to the router. I can connect to the internet from each of the other pc's.

check networking setting under windows, and set the same for linux, including IP address, gateway, route, and so forth.

Post up the outputs of:
$ /sbin/ifconfig eth0
(this contains your IP address, etc)
$ /sbin/route
(this should show your default gateway)
$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
(this holds your DNS servers)

Some useful example commands:
To set your IP address to,
subnet etc:
# ifconfig eth0 broadcast netmask

To set your gateway as
# /sbin/route add -net default gw netmask metric 1

Try pinging google via IP (,
if you can then chances are all you need to
do is to put your ISPs DNS servers
into /etc/resolv.conf, eg:
search .

"...and set the same for linux, including
IP address..."

Er...I'm sure you're aware that you dont
want to use exactly the same IP address as
is being used on another machine, just one
that is in the same subnet.
