DHCP works / Trouble w/manual network configuration.
 
Running RH7.1
Network: Cable Modem with static ip, 24.###.67.218, running straight out of modem into NIC.

My modem connection is ok.
I was able to connect to the Internet with DHCP with no problem.

I have tried over and over to manually configure the network without success. What am I missing?

Before I print what I have configured, I assume I will have to get a router if I want to add another box with its own ip?

Ok, here is what I configured based on what my ISP gave me. I put "###" in place of the real numbers. What am I missing?

/etc/sysconfig/network
NETWOKING=yes
HOSTNAME=localhost.localdomain
GATEWAY=255.255.255.0
GATEWAYDEV=eth0

/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPRO=static
IPADDR=24.###.67.218
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
GATEWAY=24.###.67.1

/etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 beckweb localhost.localdomain localhost
24.###.67.218 ns1.360hosting.com #I have not propagated this through INIC yet
24.###.67.218 www mail
24.###.67.218 loghost

/etc/resolv.conf
nameserver 216.###.208.76 #this is one of my other nameserves
search beckweb #beckweb is the name of this server

Thanks,

I found the problem:

/etc/sysconfig/network
NETWOKING=yes
HOSTNAME=localhost.localdomain
GATEWAY=255.255.255.0
GATEWAYDEV=eth0

# GATEWAY was wrong. Should be

GATEWAY=24.###.67.1

Yup. Somehow you got your netmask (255.255.255.0) entered as your gateway address.
