Re: Problems with sis900 after upgrading to 2.4.20



This is really naive, but here it what I found. I have a DSL connection
with two other machines connected through a router in my house. I was
able to telnet into other machines connected to this router and also
ping them successfully. That suggests that the NIC is fine.(I am sure
there is a better way of testing this) But I can not connect to anything
outside. Is there a problem with pppoe configuration?. But why is it not
a problem when I boot off a kernel-2.2.20 floppy? I have no clue. Please
help.
