Sorry guys to leave out the specifics.
Alright...in windows the network card is detected as a SOHOware 10/100 PCI
When configuring it in linux, I used dchp. I also have a D-Link network
card which I received
when signing up with sympatico high speed.
As for when I manually configured the card...
i used dchp for ip....
pri dns: 220.127.116.11
sec dns: 18.104.22.168
What extra parameters are required for dhcp?
Thanks for all the help!
