I suppose this is a newbie question, but I figured I'd give these lists a
I just installed FreeBSD 5.0 on my laptop, and I have a 3COM Megahertz
PCMCIA card (Model 3CCE589ET to be exact). I have a cable modem (I'm using
DCHP with that) that goes into a Linksys router and 4 port switch (serving
up DHCP internally), then into a Linksys hub. All of the other computers
on the network can access the internet just fine, and are assigned IPs
without a problem. I just can't seem to get this laptop onto the network
for some reason.
I only have 3 other computers on the network. 2 Linux (Mandrake and
Slackware) boxes, and one WinXP Pro box. One of the linux boxes is on the
hub with this laptop.
Any idea what I need to do to set this up to access the internet?
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide!
