    you could start by posting the type of card you are using...

    Under most linux distros the network config is done with iwconfig( for wireless) and ifconfig( for lines ). the default name for ethernet card is eth0. Read the man pages (man ifconfig) for the ifconfig ..they are actually not bad. You can also look here http://www.linuxquestions.org/ for further guidence.

    shals, whether you join linuxquestions or not is up to you, but you can find alot of info there. You don't need to join unless you want to ask a question or 500.

    I would say that Linuxquestions community is well worth it. I have been working with linux for about 2 years now and i still find myself asking questions on their forums.

    If your card works with XP it's no garantee it'll work on Linux.. It could be a driver issue..

    And it's "Samba" not "Sambha" Which is probably why you got zero results from google.. Have a look on http://www.samba.org. There's lots of info on their site..

    This sounds like realtek card. Normally Linux recognizes these cards without a problem. Check your Linux config to see if the card is detected and you might only be missing IP gateway and subnet mask, in setup to make it work. If you are having driver problems you could try this:


    Also network cards normally come with drivers so check your floppy or a CD for
    Linux drivers.

    Hope this helps you.
