using Mandrake 8.2, and one other computer running Windows, I have the computers connected to a hub and I have a cable modem connected to the uplink on the hub. The problem is that the Windows machine connects to the internet fine but the Linux machine will not connect at all. In fact the hub doesn't even recognize the Linux machine. The light on the hub does not come on for Linux. I have tried switching from #1 to #2 and 3 and 4. This is DHCP so I don't understand why this isn't working. As soon as I unplug the Linux machine from the hub and plug it straight into the modem it works fine. Is there something in particular that has to be done with Linux before a connection like this can be made. All I want is to be able to have both computers connected so I don't have to switch wires all the time.
