First I would just like to apologize if this topic is already posted.
I installed debian on my computer on a lan and was able to connect to the network no problem. I then took the card out used the machine a few more times and realized i needed the net on the machine...so I put the card back in and I cant for the life of me seem to grab an IP address. I know the modules were added when I installed the OS (though I checked anyway), and its added to the /etc/modules. Its a pretty standard linksys card and I'm loading the tulip module. Any help would be much appreciated.
I ended up installing a new linux os on this computer and it still would not connect to the net. Well earlier today i learned that some ISP's will only let you connect with one mac address per IP. So what i did was change the mac address on my second machine to match the one that was hooked up with my ISP originally
I hope this all makes sense.
Thanks for you help,
