Internet problem during install
This has been an ongoing problem for me since i first attempted to install
Debian with my DSL connection. In the setting up networking section, i would
choose to set it up via. dhcp, and it states that it's successful, but i
can't connect to the internet under it. If i run ifconfig it shows my eth0
set up with an ip address and all other information, but I am unable to
connect to anything. If i go through the setup manually entering in the
information of my ISP, it works, but I am unable to connect to anyone else on
my node (142.163.75.XXX). What I have been doing to get this to work right
is to allow for it to set up automatically, and on a disk i have a copy of
dhcpcd that I copy over to /usr/local/sbin and run it, and everything works
fine. Is there something that dhcpcd does that the debian install does not?
And if so, is there a way to incorporate this into the install process? It
took me a long time to figure out that dhcpcd made everything work fine, but
I"m still baffaled as to why all my devices are set up fine, but I can't
connect to anything on debian install.
thanks in advance,,
