Which linux?

It could help. Here I installed Open Suse 10.0 and the one question that made it "just go" without any work was during install to use DHCP.

If I hadn't done that I could have used it's control panels to fill in the numbers. Since your linux is unknown, you can try manually assigning the numbers.

See if anyone else has your setup of machine and network card working in Fedora Core 4. Not all cards work.

You can doublecheck that your hardware is working with Windows or a KNOPPIX CD.
