I have just installed PCLinuxOS (698 MB) in one of my hardware partition.

My Problem is that I am unable to connect to the internet. And I am not able to figure out the reason. So I have decided to post some screen shots, which may explain my problem better. Please help.

Open up terminal and type ifconfig and tell me what comes up.

When I choose ISDN. It asks me Manual Choice or External ISDN.
If I choose External ISDN. It asks me in which com(1,2,3,...,dev/modem) port I have connected the modem. What should I choose?
If I choose Internal It asks for type of modem. Again I don't know.

I apologize to you all for not replying for a month.
Actually I gave my hope on PCLinuxOS until last week.
I booted one of my college computers with PCLinuxOS and to my surprise I was able to connect to the Internet very easily.

*The One difference that I noted is that the LAN card was detected in College but not in my computer.*

So, I connected the modem to one of my USB port and then Yeah! I am connected to the Internet with PCLinuxOS. Daniweb looks a little different in this OS. But I am very happy that I am able to connect.


The Ethernet card came with a driver CD which has a source file for compiling in Linux
When I tried to compile the file I had so many errors that I gave up on it. As I said before I am happy what I have now.

And finally I thank you all for your suggestion & time that you spend helping me.

Once you have the hang of it - you'll never lose it - I believe PCLOS is good !!
The next step is fedora live CD - or PCLOS minime or Tiny
