I think that the problem is here (inet addr:192.168.0.89 Bcast:192.168.0.255) and here (inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0)

How does one go about changing this?

It looks like you're getting the ip address without problem. I don't see anything there.

Can you output the post of:

route

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.0.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 * 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
default dslmodem.domain 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

the gateway should be 192.168.0.1, how do I change it to that?

thankies

First do:

Code:
route del default
That will remove the current default gateway.

then,

Code:
route add default gw 192.168.0.1
to add the new gateway as default.

It looks like your ethernet adapter has two subnets assigned to it. I'm not sure if that could hurt the process or not. I would say you should also do a

Code:
route del 169.254.0.0
It will remove the 169.254 subnet.

Try it without removing it first though.

Try pinging 192.168.0.1 (your router) if you can ping the router and the default route is still set to go through it then the problem may be with the router and not your machine. Try to also ping some host on the Internet by IP (e.g. 216.239.37.104 instead of google.com). If you can ping by IP but not name that means your DNS is screwed up.

Also, the correct syntax for deleting the 169.254 route is:

route del -net 169.254.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0

You must run this as root. If it does not work, please post the error message.
