what did I forget to do
 
Hi all,
at home , we have a small network setup. Cable model goes to a netgear router, there are 3 wxp systems all online and good, but my linux system has no internet access. I used all the same settings for ip address and gateway, the dns servers , netmask ect, and when booting (rh 7.2 fresh install) eth0 comes up without error.
If I try to ping an address or open a website I get no response, as root or a regular user.

Any help would be apreciated.

Thanks,
Marc

Is you router providing DHCP?? or you're configuring manually your NIC ?

kenoki 07-07-2003 10:11 AM

manual config, no dhcp

what do "ifconfig" and "route" say to you?

at work at the moment, box is at home sorry :(

would I need to enable ipmasq?

kenoki 07-07-2003 03:50 PM

any more ideas?

like i said, provide that information and it should be real obvious what's wrong.

well I played some more and things have gone odd, I am now posting from the linux box here at home, BUT for some reason I can ping addresses here ok, like 192.169.0.* but trying like a "ping ftp.cdrom.com" fails with 100% packet loss

Maybe you're not getting the DNS servers form your ISP... try typing them manually at /etc/resolv.conf

nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
nameserver xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

Normally you get them automatically by DHCPclient with a script /sbin/dhclient-script

Some ISPs require another line as well. Here is mine for an example:
Code:

domain infoave.net
nameserver 206.74.254.2
nameserver 204.116.57.2
