shouldn't that ping be
err wait..

Are you in a different location now than you were before ? the dhcp server is handing out a completely different Network address to you... you are on a different subnet now than you were before.

I notice the default gateway was missing from your route.. so do you have any experience with wireshark ? personally I'd be grabbing a packet capture of that dhcp exchange to look for anything out of the ordinary.. something is not right..

I am also having a problem with UWO RezNet, however I am using Arch Linux (this installation worked fine back home). Interestingly enough, I used to Reznet last year as well, and I didn't have any problems even with defaults setting given by many LiveCDs. This year, neither my Arch Linux nor any liveCDs I tried work..

Looking at RezNet guidebook (following instructions for Mac, to be precise), I also set my account name as DHCP client ID, and set as my hostname, but still it is not working. I did register my network card using my windows Vista though, so maybe that is why. But the it didn't cause problems last year. (and BTW, you have to register your network card at before using internet, but I imagine you've already done that). I've emailed reznet staff, but so far I am getting no reply. I am afraid that I have to call them sometimes next week, it is frustrating....

Hey guys. I am online again. farslayer: how do I use wireshark? I have it installed but I don't know what output you want to see.

Woodgypsy: e-mail me at, we can compare our problems and see if we can make the RezNet staff help us out.

Thanks in advance.

Wireshark is a packet capture program. What I would look at is the exchange between your PC and the DHCP server.

You should see the Discover, offer, request, and the acknowledgment.

Thanks in advance.
Because you try to ping to, you should leave your local network. Your routetable shows no (correct) gateway, so your ping will never reach another network.
