ProMepis not seeing router!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just installed a router on my 2 machines. No problems with machine number 1, it works like a champ! Machine number 2 is being a little quirky however. I have ProMepis on this box, and it won't make an internet connection. How? You may ask, is ole Justbill posting this? I dropped my BeatriX live cd in, and it makes the connection just fine. So that eliminates a hard wire error, when I ran the wiring for this thing ( I am not using a wireless router). My guess is that I have to configure ProMepis manually (that was a real "rocket scientist" statement, I had to think long and hard on that one laugh ) . So my question is HOW?

 

Thanks

Justbill

Assuming that you are using a dynamic IP address assignment via your provider, go to the network configuration (control panel) and re-initialize your NIC card. Look and see if the connection is active and activate it if it is not.

 

What is the output of kudsu -p? Does it show your NIC card loaded as a module? Does ifconfig show an ip connection, say 192.168.2.100?

 

I assume this is a cable internet connection?
