im on this computer, and another computer in my house any they are both hooked up to the same wire, which travels down to the basment into my dads workshop to the thingy that connects all of our computers then to the modem the 2wire then were ever it goes after it leaves my house. Does that mean all of the computers IP addresses in this house are the same? or do they differ?

Okay, I'm confused a bit. Here's how I understand you:

Each machine is connected by ethernet (one cable where the connector looks like an oversized telephone connector) down to the basement. There all the computers are all plugged into a multiple port box (which is probably a router). Then this box plugs into the modem, and the modem plugs into the wall.

Is that correct? Anyway, each machine will have a different address. The multiple port box is probably a router. So it will assign each machine it's own IP address. It would seem your router has an address of 10.0.0.1 (because all machines on your subnet have to have the first 3 numbers the same, i.e. 10.0.0.xxx and only the last number is unique for each machine).

Alright, so your router doesn't seem to be 10.0.0.1... Hmmm.

Basically you either need to

A) find out the IP address of your router so that you can set a static IP that's similar, or
B) look around in whatever "control panel" on your ALT machine for network settings and "Enable DHCP"

B should be easier.

I'm off for lunch, but I'll be abck in an hour or so...

When did Comcast get into the DSL business?

Regardless, if you have DHCP set up you should be getting your IP address from the router. I've never heard of a router that uses a Type A address (10.0.0.1). Doesn't that belong to the White House or the Pentagon or something?

Try:

ifdown
ifup

Nope, doesn't belong to anyone. It's a valid private subnet for home networks....

I messed up with saying I had a DSL connection. I have a cable connection. and How do I asign an IP address to my computer. I think that might help.

You'll need to find out your router's IP address first. Then you'll have to make sure you don't assign an address that is already used by another computer. That's why DHCP is so nice, because the router will assign an unused address for you...

Just out of curiosity, what desktop are you using, KDE or Gnome? Maybe we can figure out what control panel gui can help you do this easier. Like I said, I've never used ALT linux...

To renew, I believe all you do is /sbin/ifdown and /sbin/ifup as root.

Anyway, the graphical way should be something like click on the gnome menu --> system --> network configuration or something like that...

If you look under all the menus do you see anything called gnome control center or something that sounds like a central configuration tool?
