ifup: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces" debian lenny
I made a mistake and used Webmin to update packages on my Debian Lenny install and I'm now no longer able to connect to my router via eth0 or ath0 (using madwifi).
I get an error message at boot which states that it is unable to read /etc/network/interfaces:5: Unknown address type
I attempted to m-a a-i madwifi and this asked for the linx-headers which I've now reinstalled using the downloaded .deb file and have managed to get madwifi installed and the ath0 is now available but I can't get it to connect to the router which is using WPA-PSK. I don't know the commands as I'm slowly learning linux as I've been a lifelong Windows user (loving it so far).
My interfaces config for ath0 is as follows:-
iface lo loopback
iface ath0 inet static
How do I get Debian to read the interfaces file and / or how do I manually connect to my router?
Thanks in advance
Usually the easiest way to connect is by cable and eth0. Can you connect a cable between your computer and router?
Let us know what you got from ifconfig and iwconfig command.
