Network problem Installing Debian on Sony Vaio VGN.FE21M
I've been having several problems installing Debian on a Sony Vaio VGN-FE21M. The one problem I've not been able to solve after googling and checking several manuals is to make the network run.
After rebooting when I finish a network install the network stops working (apt-get update won't work). During the network install everything works OK, no problem downloading all packages from the web.
when I try a ping it will keep sending packages and won't stop, kinda strange. and when running apt-get update it will stall.

Am I missing something/any suggestions?
unix ping is different, it wont stop until you hit hit ctrl-c or specify a count.
ping -c 3 192.168.1.1
anyhow, what error do you get while using apt-get?
can you ping www.yahoo.com ?
test. Otherwise it won't let me post a link to a website because of number of posts restriction.
another one, I need at least three to be able to post a link
Sorry for the previous crap posts. Had to...
many thanks for your answer.
ping outputs the following:
#ping -c 3 www.yahoo.com

this seems to be ok right?
deb http://ftp.rediris.es/debian/ etch main
now if I run apt-get
0% [Connecting to ftp.rediries.es (188.8.131.52)]
and it stays like that for like 5 mins and then
Errhttp://ftp.rediris.es etch Release.gpg
Cound not connect to ftp.rediris.es:80 (184.108.40.206), connnection timed out
Failed to fetch http://ftp.rediris.es/debian/dists/etch/Release.gpd Could not connect to ftp.rediris.es:80 (220.127.116.11), connection timed out
Reading package lists... Done
E: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
This rediris is a server chosen randomly. I also tried Debian's US server (http://http.us.debian.org/debian) and a French (I think) one.
do you think it might be the apt-get that doesn't work? It did work during installation. And apt-get, as I understand, is pretty straightforward to set-up, right?
