Static IP Address not connecting to the internet Ubuntu 9.04
Hi, I just installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my desktop. I had networking working for a while under DHCP after I installed Wicd (and uninstalled Gnome Network Manager) but now that I've set up a static IP address (that campus IT gave me, I'm on a college network), it has ceased to connect to the internet. I cannot use Firefox or ping any external servers (eg: www.google.com) or internal computers (my laptop).
We will refer to the first block as "24-bit block", the second as "20-bit
block", and the third as "16-bit" block". Note that the first block is
nothing but a single class A network number, while the second block is a set
of 16 continuous class B network numbers, and the third block is a set of 255
continuous class C network numbers.
So your school's network isn't in any of the three ranges for a private LAN. I think this is going to cause you BIG problems.

Oddly enough, while I can ping any internal (128.113) IP, I can't ping anything outside (www.google.com). I'm pretty sure this is the result of firewalling at the campus pipeline to the internet, since it's the same way on my laptop. I can get to websites on the desktop while using DHCP, so it doesn't have any connectivity issues.
Yes, 184.108.40.206 is my gateway on DHCP. Ping results while on DHCP:
