My Network Configuration Check List
Maybe this will help.
Configuring a Linux Network:
You must substitute all network addresses with your own addresses.
dmesg | grep -i eth0 (Nic make model and mac address of nic)
netconfig (Uses a GUI to set network)
1. Configure eth0 to automatically start at boot.
You must reboot for changes to take.
Configure NIC card:
If you have more than one ip address, you can add the following files
2. Configure machine network and hostnames
Name your system with a real domain name. It will show in email headers and must resolve.
3. DNS - Set a nameserver list to resolve names. Use your isp's nameserver as the first one then any others.
