Instalation problems - Large CD image

Forums: 

Hi, I’ve just installed the latest stable release of Debian from a large CD image (the net install didn’t work, the computer kept freezing).

I have the following problems:

1. I can’t connect to the internet with it, even if I plug in an ethernet cable. (I only used the first of teh CD images, maybe that's the problem).
2. How do I download all the extras (it is running the very basic set up).

Any help would be gratefully received!

Chris

How do you try to connect?

Try:
ifconfig -a
If that tells you something like eth0
dhclient eth0
and if tells you eth1 or whatever, try that.

Post
lspci | grep Ethernet

Do you use a modem or a router?
