I have windows xp and slackware 13 on one computer, and the ISP provided me a new modem. There was manual how to configure it, so i start the web browser and typed it's ip address 192.168.1.1 and the web interface of the modem appeared so i logged in, that was easy.
But under slackware, i don't know how to enter in the modem config / web interface. I type in 192.168.1.1 but it's not working. Here's the output of ifconfig eth0 :
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:a1:b0:01:18:28 inet addr:169.254.73.8 Bcast:169.254.255.255 Mask:255.255.0.0 UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) Interrupt:17 Memory:febff400-febff4ff
How can i log in into the modem from linux, i.e. find it's assigned ip under slackware ? Thank you.
