im using fedora 3 with a nic and a cable modem. I can ping the IP from both the box and from another box. the ip shows behind the modem on the network.
dhcp worked but when i switched to a static ip/gateway I lost the internet.
I also had edited my host.conf file - if anyone has a sugguestion for what's in that file please.
[root@br ~]# ifconfig eth0
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
inet addr:xx.xxx.xxx.10 Bcast:xx.xxx.xxx.15 Mask:255.xxx.xxx.xxx
inet6 addr: xxxx::xxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx/xx Scope:Link

why would it broadcast at .15 instead of .10 like the ip?
when i ping a host:
[root@br ~]# ping www.yahoo.com
ping: unknown host www.yahoo.com
when i ping an ip: it freezes and i have to ctrl c to get it to unfreeze.
[root@br ~]# ping xx.xxx.xxx.xxx
PING xx.xxx.xxx.xxx (xx.xxx.xxx.xxx) 56(84) bytes of data.

any help is appreciated
