    Default Need help with linux internet connection

    Help! I just installed Suse 10 as a second operating system on my computer. It shows that I am online but I am unable to connect to any sites or my messenger service. I know I must have something configured wrong but I am a newbie to linux and have no idea what or where to look. I am including a pic to show the error message I am getting. It shows me online but also says no proxy? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

    How do you connect- dial up, cable, dsl? It is most likely a driver issue for your modem or network card. Linux comes with most drivers, but sometimes you have unsupported hardware. Charlie

    Hi!
    I use dial-up and an external US Robotics modem. It shows that I am online but I don't hear the modem dialing so not sure. It does show the modem in my hardware so it is at least recognised to that point. Maybe I need to download some type of driver or software to go with the modem? It works fine in windows and is supposed to be compatible with linux so I have no clue what I'm doing wrong or what to try.

    Hi - The driver you want is at this link. You will probably need to scroll down the page. Disconnect your modem before installing the driver.

    This is a connection for Linux modem drivers, it is a little confusing, but there is a utility to scan your computer to identify your modem chipset. Once you find it, it is still not as straight forward as installing a Windows driver. Charlie
