dood for real netconfig
do a netconfig
setup your router's ip address should be 192.168.1.100 or 192.168.1.1
an open ip to use, and your dns, on static. don't choose dhcp under netconfig.
Then, if that doesn't work, choose dhcp, and enter the settings you need to. I believe just gateway, and ip. If that. yes echoing the nameserver into /etc/resolv.conf will work. resolv.conf
but so will emacs /etc/resolv.conf and entering it manually. or whatever you wanna use as a editor. I'd suggest startx, and get under xfree. Go gui till you get your box online. Also after your on, log fully out, and log into a new user that's not root. Like adduser whateverusername
Bla bla bla
Deluser or userdel deletes I forget which they changed it a bit back. Um, do this as to not be under super user access online, it's safer, don't ask. Also su to root via. su root then enter the password for root. Do not list info such as passwords online at all. Obvious stuff, But I'm being bluntly obvious.
If this does not work, post again. But all of this should, as this whole thread has gone on to long, I decided to post, and um...I'm guessing by the whole ordeal of the post that you don't know what I'm saying is a good thing to do. All of it. So...try it out, whatever, have fun.
