Description Leon Torres 2003-06-14 04:41:13 UTC
I have been unable to connect with Red Hat Linux 8-9 to the internet 
I used to have a very good connection util recently that I complained with my ISP
so I guess that they must haved changed something, but they wont handle help
support for anything else than windows

so anyway when I first experienced the problem I was running RedHat 8
and I actually found a bug report about it, the redhat-config-network was
crashing, it seem that ok yes I mabe was able to corect it but I was still
unable to connect

after many queries to people more close and who speak my language I foud no answers 

so i did the easyest way out I reinstalled redhat 8 until redhat 9 came out and
still the same problem occurs
here is a run of what the computer tells me

[root@NEKO1 root]# ifup eth0
Determining IP information for eth0...SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
/sbin/ifup: line 268: [: : integer expression expected
[root@NEKO1 root]#

another thing that I found odd is the fact that even after many reinstalls and
even a change from a partition to a hard drive
when I  run the ifconfig command
I get the same IP address that was last leased to me instead of the newest IP
that windows reports 

please help anyone I'm very enthusiastic about Linux but witout a running
internet connection I feel/am useless to do anyting
