cannot acess work network


Hey all,
I'm learning alot about Linux on the fly every day and I thought I had enough knowledge to hook my linux box onto the network but apparently not. I originally wanted to see the Windows Domain but lets go through baby steps, I can't even ping any ip address, except mine; and I cant ping outside networks (ie yahoo.com) I've been reading alot on troubleshooting but was wondering if anyone knows what to do, I'm running out of ideas. :|
PS running SuSE 10.1 if it doesnt say that to the left...

Hi

How are you trying to connect, i.e ethernet/router, modem? If ethernet with a router, type this (as root):

ifconfig eth0

This will tell you the status of the ethernet connection. Post the results.

Hope this helps

Bob

OK you have an IP address, but are you going through an ADSL router or connecting directly to a modem? The IP address is x'd out, so you do not appear to be connected to any network.

Looks a bit suspicious ... did another machine work with the
same cable on the same port?
And what's the default route?


Cheers,
Tink

You still haven't told us about your network topology. Also, in addition to ifconfig, try giving the output of the route command.

Ok I did a route -n and heres what it says.

Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
130.xx.xx.0 130.xx.xx.1 255.255.255.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo

FYI I 'x'ed those two numbers out the output didnt look like that, but I'm certain they are correct, however the second entry I have no clue as to where that number comes from cause I've never seen or used it? Any ideas?...
