able to ping but no connection (YDL 5.0.1 PS3)


I tried to ping my linksys default address 192.168.1.1 it says network is unreachable but i was going through my router pages I found out my default address is totally different (76.178.63.176) and when i try to ping it i get results but when i try to make a wireless account I am able to activate it but when I try to load something on mozilla it wont say anything for a while for a while and then it will say cannot find server. What else can I do?

The address 76.178.63.176 is probably your external address assigned to you by your isp. Is your network dynamic or static? How do you have your YDL box set up? What does running /sbin/ifconfig give you? Is it an address in your networks ip pool?

I am running a static IP right now and im not sure about my YDL box set up but I am trying all this on my PS3. When I typed in that /sbin/ifcongig i got this:

Link encap: Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask 255.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX packets:959 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packet:959 errors:0 dropped:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txquelen:0
RX bytes:1629396 (1.5 Mib) TX bytes:1629396 (1.5 Mib)


I have no idea what all that means, can someone help me??

Try this:

# ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255
# route add default gw 192.168.1.1

I believe so try using the internet now with mozilla or ping some host e.g. ping www.linuxquestions.org

Edit: Actually yes it's normal you've told your computer to use the router as your gateway and configured your network.

You just want me to type in 'ifconfig'? I typed exactly that and it got command not found

Run it as root, or use the full path as your normal user (i.e. /sbin/ifconfig).

Well, I'm running out of ideas could use some help now! XD

PERHAPS...for wireless Linux uses eth1 instead of eth0. So maybe you can try:

# ifconfig eth1 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255
# route add default gw 192.168.1.1

Also, try typing:

# ifconfig eth0 up
# ifconfig eth1 up

And see if you can ping at least 192.168.1.1

Well the problem is that I *THINK* ifconfig solo command should show your IP address, broadcast and mask for eth0. Are you sure that there isn't this information?
