Re: Hopefully a Simple internet problem

>I have a Pentium II 400 MHZ (with Debian installed on it) and it connects to the internet via another computer which runs Microsoft Windows XP. So I would like to share my internet connection in my network as this is commonly done in a Windows network environment. So all the computers in the network here use the shared internet acces protocol from Microsoft. The trouble is that my Debian system can't access the internet in any way. My question is: How can I get my Debian system through the internet sharing (from Windows) on the internet. Can anyone help me?

So your shared Windows-networking worked prior to the upgrade? I assume
the XP box shares out a standard DHCP connection? If not, if it's using
some sort of proprietary "shared internet acces [sic] protocol from
Microsoft", things might be a bit tougher to figure out. In that
situation, I think I'd just buy a multi-port router to take over the
role of sharing the internet connection.
What's the output of "ifconfig" on your Debian box?
What's the contents of "/etc/networking/interfaces"?
