      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Networking configuration issue

Recommended Posts

First of all .SORRY i post it here..but every time i went into the netwoking under advanced topics it refused to keep me loged in..so i couldd't start this topic..my little issue is..i have a dhcp connection......with user and password requierd.....and in NONE of my local network connection or internet connection....menus....i couldn't find it :(...so basically i can't browse the internet...

 

if i am not to rude to ask this little..maybe..stupid question....where do i finally find the menus or..console commands that would do the job of configuring my internet connection?.. :(

 

i have mandriva 2007.1 spring edition.....

If you have a stand-alone DSL or cable modem, that's usually done in the modem's configuration. See your modem manual for how to do that. Otherwise, select the appropriate option in MCC (Configure your computer)/Network & Internet/Set up a new network interface.

If it's requiring a username and password, this sounds like a dialup type connection, either being made via ADSL for PPPoA or PPPoE. So you should be looking at ADSL connection.

If you are using a laptop, unlock the numlock key before entering the password ;)

To avoid that in the future, disable the numlock service.
