Exclamation Fedora Core 2 connection problem

Hello every one, I am new to linux and at the same time not. Around when 7.0 came out I poked around in it a bit but never really stuck with it. Well to make a long story short I now use Linux Fedora Core 2. I am having a problem connecting to the internet I have tried a few things still no go. Can some one help me out with this? It says I have an active ethernet connection but I can not browse the web get on AIM or any other features. I am running through a router thus my computer will have a staticly assigned IP(private). I have all my information ready to do this if some one can help me. I.E. Default Gateway DNS and so on. If I do not need any of this because I already have an active ethernet connection thats great but just incase. Can some one please help me with this? It would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Default Re: Fedora Core 2 connection problem

Point your default gateway and DNS of your computer to the private IP number of your router. I don't know Fedora - is it linuxconf which can do this? ping is a great tool for testing all this (IP numbers and names). Google for Linux network troubleshooting (or howto).

The most sane solution is to use "system-config-network" and set up the connection from there.

This is a forum for nvidia related problems. Please post stuff like this to the appropriate Fedora mailing list or whatever.
