This is only partially true. You were using ADSL in Mandrake 8.2 - but you aren't any longer. Now you're using ADSL with the Linksys router.Originally Posted by DMAN
That depends on how your router/network is setup.How do configure my system to use the router to get online?
If you're using static IPs for your internal network, then you'll want to be sure the router is properly set to do that.
If the router is assigning IPs via DHCP, then you have to be sure and have a DHCP client installed on your Mandrake box - which you probably already do if you were previously successfull in using your ADSL connection straight from the Drake box - and make sure that the router's DHCP server is actively assigning IPs.
Perhaps someone here who actually uses a Linksys router might be able to provide you with some more info, but be sure and check the Linksys docs/website as well.
