I hav very strange network problem i have an internet connection via network i have configured the network ips and everything but i cant get the internet to work neither on browser nor terminal i have a static ip and i can ping myself but i couldnt ping the dns nor the proxy?? Anyone can tell me what the problem might be???
Your ip address must be on the same subnet as the box that is giving the access and you must specify the ip address of this box as the gateway. You should also state the DNS addresses given in /etc/resolv.conf.
An example of this is if the box to which you must connect for internet access has an address like 192.168.1.10 then you must also have an address in this range eg 192.168.1.20. You specify the gateway as 192.168.1.10
can you tell me how to configure the gateway in terminal because in the settings for the network i put the gateway and everything cuz my ip is 192.168.0.171 and the gateway is 192.168.0.100 and they are all configured but the output of ifconfig doesnt show the gateway!!
