hi, i stumbled on the thread and this is exactly the information i was looking for! at home i have a dsl router with a dhcp server, but when i bring my laptop to work i need to log into the network (without dhcp) by assigning it an IP address etc. and i hadn't figured out how with debian sarge.

can i use the same procedure you wrote in your answer to zameer? i'll need to assign a DNS address too though, how do i do that? i tried to directly rewrite the /etc/resolv.conf file but that didn't seem to work.

it really depends on what approach you want to take. If your dsl router has dhcp capabilities (and your want to use them), then you can make your interfaces file look like
auto eth0 inet dhcp

otherwise you need to assign settings manually

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

about the DNS server, if you are using the dhcp approach. you should enter the address of the dhcp server (that is the IP address of a dns server provided by your ISP) in the configuration of the router.
the router will pass on this info to the dhcp clients in your network automatically.

if you are using static ip you should add a line in /etc/resolv.conf


which points to the DNS server of your ISP
