I have installed debian on my machine and have been having real trouble updating with apt through the internet. I am able to connect through the internet when inside debian using firefox, however whenever I try to config the sources list to use ftp.debian.co.uk it gets host unreachable.
my ifconfig looks like this
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:13
inet addr:192.168.1.3 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
EtherTalk Phase 2 addr:65280/250
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

TX packets:1037 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:665259 (649.6 KiB) TX bytes:193420 (188.8 KiB)
and my eth0 is config to obtain via DHCP, any reason why it wont connect through the terminal?
