If you know what you are doing, this is your opportunity to configure your network interface, otherwise:
- Click cancel to continue.
There is a simple trick that you might want to learn here. Most of the time it is hard to know what driver is required for the net card in order to work properly, or you may not even know what brand you are using. Auto detection will give you this information, pay attention to whatever you do. If you know TCP/IP, you could go ahead and try to auto detect the net card and enter the IP address you will be using. Take notes about the net card if you run the auto detection.
- Choose the configuration type and click ok to proceed with the setup.
You can press cancel at any time during the net card auto configuration process. By pressing cancel you will be brought back to the first screen (network configuration wizard). We will go through the network configuration later after the installation.
You learn more when you do things manually. Trust me it is the best way to learn especially when you get into trouble.
