Please clarify "no internet."  If no web sites come up, check if you
have explicit congestion notification turned on in the kernel.  you can
turn it off with a recompile or an echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_ecn I

Thanks, I'll give this a shot - my criteria for no Internet were that I couldn't connect with Mozilla, but also that "ping whatever.com" returned "unknown host" - from what I learned getting the connection working with kernel 2.2.X, it looks like everything should work, but since I installed 2.4.7 I can't seem to connect.

Thanks again for any advice.
