2 be perfectly honest that wasn't very helpful :) I already read a dozen howto's and still can't set up that internet. I think that my auditor is cursed :D Anyway, could some1 send a step by step instructions? Please... And another thing. Could I set it up so that I use a network connection that's on the network and not the "direct router/modem" connection? Thanks...

<sigh>

You know, a little _input_ would be nice. That trivial stuff like what isn't working and what errors you're getting where. Who your ISP is. How you're connected to your modem, and what brand/model it is...

K sorry about that. The sutiation is like this. I have a D-Link DSL-360T modem. I'm connected to the internet on my Win XP box and everything works fine. I can share the connection over my home network so my other Win XP box gets a piece of it. The problem starts here. I boot of my auditor cd. WHERE is the "network connection" setup on this OS? Is the setup made via the command line? Or HOW is it made? My problem isn't that the connection on auditor doesn't work. It's that I just don't know how and where I should go to setup the connection. As before I use a DSL that REQUIRES a user name and password. And my network card doesn't need any IP setup to have the connection up and running. I mean, I just set it up to auto and he assigns an IP and it works. Default gateway, no DNS -> you know everything default :) So I don't think that the IP is the key here. If you have set up an connection to the internet on auditor (bootable cd) that where should I go to find the internet settings? I hope I was clear enough and haven't bugged you a lot :D Thanks anyway.

I'm guessing you have a direct connection to the Internet. THis is a very bad thing. I surrgest you go buiy a NAT router that supports your paticulare method of connecting to the Internet (be that ADSL, Cable or even SDSL).

^ Says it right there ^

Might I surgest this one, thats asuming you live in England of course.

Btw. Your 'modem' isn't a modem.

Nicely put. I know that :D If you check my earlier post I said modem/router so I ment just to get it working and not to check "if my modem is a modem" :D

Ah what else I DON'T live in England and since i've given up of this whole thing I'll just say 1 thing: I NEEDED SOME1 THAT USES AUDITOR TO TELL ME WHERE THE HECK I SHOULD GO 2 SET UP THE INTERNET. AND NOT SOME1 TO TEACH ME ABOUT MODEMS AND ROUTERS :D Thanks anyway, you've all bean gr8! :P

You are asking for some thing that I dought many people in the world would have done. Most people who intend on using Linux would get a NAT router so they don't have to worry about hardware compatability to do with there Internet connection. As stated befor, a direct Internet connection (which you have) is a major security risk, I strongly advise you get a NAT router.
