Ok here is the story. All of a sudden my machine won't respond to SSH anymore. I have my router, and machine setup properly. I even shut off the Linux firewall so that I could rule that out. I'm not quite sure why. It also isn't responding to pinging from other computers. It had been working perfectly fine before, and then it just stopped.
I'm super ultra confused at this point. I double checked everything on it. I re-entered the Network information in the setup tool so I know everything there is correct.
ARG, I've had nothing but problems since I re-installed Linux without a GUI.
