    Default Wired Network Help

    Just installed BT3 to my HDD from a Live CD. I have a wireless device not supported by BT3 so I tried plugging my laptop into a Belkin router and I get nothing. Can anyone please tell me how to setup my BT3 for a wired connection? Thanks!

    Unhappy Wired Connection Help

    I just did:
    ifconfig lo up
    &
    dhcpcd lo

    Like instructed, but I still have no IP, just the default localhost IP address. Can someone help? Thanks!

    Use
    Code:
    ifconfig
    lo is the local loopback, in ifconfig output look at Link encap:
    look for one that says Ethernet, in my experience the wired ethernet card is usually eth0.
    Code:
    ifconfig eth0 up
    rm /etc/dhcpc/*
    dhcpcd -nd eth0

    Try having a view of the ifconfig man page for more info mate,
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
