Slackware-Network issue

Hai all,

                  Am using slackware 2.6.33.4-smp.  When i connected the LAN cable, its not connecting to network.

              1.  To do that what i have to do?

                2.  And can i access a shared folder in slackware from one XP machine?. How to share a file/folder?

           dmesg | grep eth giving the following,

"eth0: Tigon3 [partno(BCM95906) rev c002] (PCI Express) MAC address 00:26:22:04:3f:d7
eth0: attached PHY is 5906 (10/100Base-TX Ethernet) (WireSpeed[0])
eth0: RXcsums[1] LinkChgREG[0] MIirq[0] ASF[0] TSOcap[0]
eth0: dma_rwctrl[76180000] dma_mask[64-bit]
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready
tg3: eth0: Link is up at 100 Mbps, full duplex.
tg3: eth0: Flow control is on for TX and on for RX.
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready
eth0: no IPv6 routers present"

 

              thank you,

Everything looks fine, your computer should automatically connect no boot providing it is connected to a dhcp router. if you are static addresses then you will need to modify /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf.

If you are a standard user and want a gui program to manager the network interfaces then I recommend installing wicd from the /extra/ directory of the installation DVD.

thank you, i will try tonight and get back here if any issues..

I second mfillpot's wicd suggestion. I use it even on my wired networks. It's a much simpler network app than the generics included in most distributions.
