The answer here is that you should consult your local network administration and ask them how to do so. The network parameters you need to know will be the same for a linux system as they are for a Windows one and you will need to know your ip address, the netmask to be used, the gateway to be used and the ip address of a nameserver to resolve names to ip addresses.

It's not clear from your question exactly what the problem is. Are you unable to connect to the internet from a workstation running CentOS 8? If so, we need to know first if your network interface is supported by CentOS, the output of:

Code: Select all

ip a
would be helpful, as it will tell us if the card is recognised with a driver loaded, just not yet configured. Also:

Code: Select all

lspci | grep Ether
Which will list installed ethernet cards. If it's not a card but USB then:

Code: Select all

may give the necessary information. A common cause of this problem is failing to tell CentOS always to use the card when you install it (setting up the network is one of the installer tasks). If you didn't do so then you can easily do this by running either the Network Manager applet (gui) or nmtui if you're not running a gui.
