Hi Guys
I am giving my first steps into Linux using the Knoppix booting from a CD.
everything is working OK but I can not configure it to access the internet.
I have a 3COM network card and a cable modem connected to it. I live in the
UK and my provider is Telewest.
bearing in mind, I just started does any one have any ideas.
thanks
best regards
               Luis

try to use:

1) nslookup http://www.yahoo.com
to determine what problems you are having.
Are you using DHCP?

Hi John
this nslookup utility does it run on Linux or windows ?
I don't know what DHCP is. How can I check if I am using DHCP?
Thanks

just open the console and type in

nslookup http://www.yahoo.com

it should print a long list of ip addresses.

DHCP is a protocol to get the network configuration for your running
machine.
Like ip , netmask,dns and gateway.

Hi John
When I start Knoppix it looks like I do not have any thing from the network
card, no receive transmit signals. I have tried to configure the internet
connection using DHCP and it could not find anything, and the modem was not
being used at all. I tried also to configure the connection manually by
giving it the IP address, netmask and so on but it still could not do it the
other thing it asked for was broadcast address which I could not find, I did
in XP CMD IPCONFIG/ALL to find the values. could it be the network card? the
only thing is it works under windows with no problem.
thanks for your help
regards
               Luis

When I tried knoppix several months ago, it failed to detect my 3com
network card. This could be the problem you are seeing.

I didn't give it much thought, and pretty much gave up on knoppix after
that. It's not like it was a strange 3com card or anything. It was a
3c905, and it's popular enough that you would think that knoppix would
have drivers for it, but I don't think it did.

Hi Luis,
   I have used Kurumin (a brazilian version based in Knoppix Linux) and it
have a lot of drivers for 3com devices. You can try use it!
In the link below you can search any links to download this distro.

I am by no means a Linux expert... I'm new to it like you are. I can tell
you that I have had luck with the redhat distros, and even the new Fedora
distro.

Of course, they don't usually run from CD like knoppix does, but you can
install it.

       It might not have autodetected your card, but I SERIOUSLY doubt it doesn't
have drivers for the 905. The 905 is a VERY common card, and even Redhat7.3,
which is quite a few years old, has 905 drivers as standard. TTYL

Hi Luis

I have a 3c905 3com card so I popped my knoppix cd in to my old Win98 Dell
box and it worked fine.  My knoppix cd is at least 2 years old.  My guess
is that your cd has drivers and that you have a different problem.

From my very limited experience, you can probably fix your system if you
keep working at it.  I was able to get email working, network up and
browser to work after a little while simply using the man pages.

The knoppix cd has lots of documentation with it.  And the linux community
is always willing to help.  If you keep working you will learn a lot and be
an expert.
Good luck,
Tom

I believe that Suse now has a live cd version of Suse 9.0. It does the same
thing as knoppix.

if I remember correctly, there's a script for setting up a network. If
you're inside a LAN or using dial-up connections, look into the KDE
menus for configuration programs.

Francisco

P.S.: also, i think there's something like saving your configuration to
a floppy, so you don't have to bother all that setup programs every boot.
