My system is an IBM ThinkPad R51 2887-MQ5.
When I am in Windows XP if I go to Control Panel then Network Connections it shows two connections.
Local Area Connection 2: Scientific Atlanta WebSTAR 2000 series Cable Modem-Location 0 (USB Cable Modem)
Local Area Connection 3: IntelŪPRO/100 VE Network Connection-Location PCI bus 2, device 8, function 0
LAC 2 is shown as connected and LAC3 as Disabled.
The setup I have here is a cable from the wall socket which runs to a box (which I am guessing is the Scientific Atlanta Cable Modem - although I'm not 100% sure). From the box there are two cables: one to the phone and another to a USB port on my computer.
When in Puppy I selected "Connect to Internet by wired ethernet interface...". It showed Ethernet driver modules e100 and ipw2200 are currently loaded and under Interfaces it said the Puppy sees 1 active ethernet interface. I clicked on eth0 and then Test eth0 and it came back as unable to connect to the network. I tried several times to load a driver by selecting auto and then retesting but it always said that it is unable to connect to the network.
What I would like is for someone to walk me through how to set up the internet connection in Puppy Linux.
Thanks in advance.
