Hi all. I have a lynksys router connecting my little network to a DSL line. I have been trying to set up static ip addresses within my network, but i can't get it to work. I set up my linux box w/ an ip of 192.168.1.101 , netmask of 255.255.255.0 and gateway of 192.168.1.1 . I don't understand why this is all not working... can somebody help?
Thanks for getting back to me. Yes, i am using lfs. The only machine with that ip is my other lfs system (which is on the same computer... uses dhcp). I'm sure it's something simple that i'm not doing. I was wondering if you had to specify the dns servers? if so, how would i do that? here's some of my files:

one of two things that haven't been mentioned
either your default route isn't working, which it should. type
or the linksys router isn't routing IPs it didn't had out, there should be some configuration option somewhere in that linksys regarding that. I could have sworn I saw that before..
I doubt the resolv.conf issue, it could be, if you have ever grabbed a dhcp lease it *should* update the resolv.conf and it will stay that way until you change it. Either way it is a good thing to check
SInce the Linksys cable router hands out 50 dhcp addresses starting at 192.168.1.100, it might be a good idea to use static addresses either below 192.168.1.100 or above 192.168.1.49. This way you insure that you won't get a duplicate address.
A note. On versions of the bios below 1.4.27. the Linksys had a bug that would cause it to duplicate a DHCP address. For anyone using a Linksys, upgrade its bios to 1.4.27 or later. -mk
