Can't use internet with router Linksys BEFSR41W
hi.. i'm new to linux, currently using debian linux. i've tried to configure my ethernet with etherconf, which appear to be successful. however, as the system restarted, there's DHCPREQUEST and DHCPOFFER message. however, the network appears to be unreachable. connection to 192.168.1.1 (the Linksys BEFSR41W router IP address) is refused. pinging any address does not seem to work either. i tried ifdown -a followed by ifup -a. now the DHCPREQUEST to 255.255.255.255 on port 67 yields Message is too long. no DHCPOFFER is received and dhcp-client is forced to use the old lease (in my case 192.168.1.110).. now i'm able to ping the router and even external address.. however, i still can't browse anything (timeout message) with mozilla (or any other web browser).
any help will be appreciable.. thanx ^^
