Are you connected using WiFi or ethernet cable?

If Ethernet, try the netcardconf program in the DSL menu under "Setup > Net Setup". Presumably DHCP is enabled on your router or modem, enable this option in the settings to have it configured automatically.

If it doesn't work, open a terminal window and use the "ifconfig" command to list your network interfaces. Normally there will be two listed on the left, one named "eth0" and another "lo". If your computer also has a wireless interface, that may be listed too. Try any interfaces listed additionally to these two in case one is your ethernet connection.

If you want to connect with WiFi, you should use the iwconfig menu in "Net Setup" to configure it. Again, you'll need to know the interface name if it isn't "eth0". Use the "iwconfig" command in the terminal to list any detected wireless interfaces. If no wireless interfaces are found (the only results say "no wireless extensions"), then you'll need to look into the chipset used by your wireless interface and check which Linux drivers should be installed or configured to make the interface work.

Your networking hardware should be listed as a device in the "pci" section of the "system stats" tool in the DSL Menu under "System >", unless it is a usb device in which case using lsusb at the terminal might reveal it. The information listed here may be useful for identifying the chipset used by your hardware if it has not been correctly detected by DSL.

Hello

I'm new to linux so i'd be grateful if you can bear with me. I have been trying to run DSL from a flash drive but i cannot access the net. i have broadband so i don't know why this is not connecting.

Can anyone please shed light on what could be the problem?

Thanks

Just installed DSL current version a couple of hours ago. Fairly certain I did it right. . but maybe not.  Hard drive install.  Everything seems to want to work except accessing online. I'm ethernet connected to router, but can't ping anything but myself.

ifconfig looks fine but maybe not .. I am posting this from an Android tablet  need to minimize typing.

Setup/Net setup/netcardconf
interface  eth0
DHCP broadcast. Yes

If I change to no

Interface  eth0
Address IP blank
Mask.  255.255.255.0
Broadcast  blank
Gateway blank
Nameserver (s)   192.168.29.1  and blank.

Ifconfig only lists 'lo' .. no ethernet.
'
The imprint on the desktop says Host:  box   and an IP address.  If anyone can tell me where to go from here, I thank you in advance.

So far, I really like DSL.  Came off of Lubuntu for it. It is just right for this old machine.

If you're trying to install using apt-get, that system is rather broken with DSL. There is no Debian package of iPerf for Debian Woody (3), the version of Debian with which DSL is compatible, however there is one for the following version "Sarge" (http://archive.debian.net/sarge/iperf). To get that to install, you would first need to install the "libc6.dsl" and "gcc1.dsl" extensions from the MyDSL respository, then use dpkg (with the "--force" switch) to manually load the Sarge package.

The only dependency I'm not sure about is libstdc++5 as I can't tell exactly what version comes with DSL, but I think you'll probably be lucky. It's possible the ".dsl" packages aren't actually required either, if the packages list on the DSL website hasn't been updated for the last releases.

If that doesn't work, or you want the latest version, then you'll have to build from source. There aren't many dependencies with this program, so that shouldn't be too hard, but check if it mentions any incompatibility with kernel versions as early as 2.4 which is used by DSL. See the wiki page about making a "tar.gz" extension for a description of the compiling process.

Has anybody managed to install iPerf on DSL.

I'm having dependency problems.

can't install/update libc6, libstdc++6, multiarch-support, libgcc1.

has anybody managed or even tried to get iPerf running.

if so it would make DSL the perfect companion to run along GNS3/VMware and other testing projects.

regards
