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.

#ifconfig
eth0

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.

Sorry

Sorry for the previous crap posts. Had to...

webdevil,

many thanks for your answer.

ping outputs the following:

#ping -c 3 www.yahoo.com
PING www.yahoo-ht2.adadns.net (209.73.186.238) 56 (84) bytes of data

64 bytes from www.yahoo.com (209.73.186.238): icmp_dwq=3 ttl=55 time143 ms

--- www.yahoo-ht2.akadns.net ping statistics ---

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 143.361/143.479/143.568/0.321 ms


this seems to be ok right?

my /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://ftp.rediris.es/debian/ etch main


now if I run apt-get

#apt-get update
0% [Connecting to ftp.rediries.es (1.0.0.0)]

and it stays like that for like 5 mins and then

#apt-get update
Errhttp://ftp.rediris.es etch Release.gpg
Cound not connect to ftp.rediris.es:80 (1.0.0.0), connnection timed out
Failed to fetch http://ftp.rediris.es/debian/dists/etch/Release.gpd Could not connect to ftp.rediris.es:80 (1.0.0.0), 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?
