I have searched quite a bit on the forums and Googled this but havent found a solution yet.
I got the Backtrack 3 Live CD, but for some reason I cant connect to the internet.
Right now I have a direct connection to my modem. I have a Dell Dimension e310, an Intel 915 Express Chipset Family. I have Roadrunner.
I tried various fixes but none have worked, please help.
Please provide some details...
Is this a USB or RJ45 based device?
What "fixes" have you tried?
can you post the output of ifconfig please
I have an RJ45 based device, and I have tried using modprobe, ifconfig eth0 up, dhclient eth0, and dhcpcd eth0.
and when I type Ifconfig I get eth0 and lo
Have you got a static IP from ISP or getting IP from dhcp server.your steps are correct for dhcp assigned IP.

ok, well, now I am connected to a router, it is RJ45 based Belkin, when I type ifconfig, it says eth0 and lo. I also have a dynamic IP address. What should I do now?
