Debian Linux stopping connecting to network!???!


Debian Linux stopping being able to access the internet!
It is connected via ethernet cable.
ping 74.125.127.104 returns:
Code:
connect: Network is unreachable
ifconfig only returns the loopback device.

Any idea what the problem is?
And this time I didn't do anything to specifically break it.

I made it work by typing:
Code:
ifconfig --broadcast eth1 up
dhclient
Somehow eth0 changed to eth1!

Did you change the NIC? udev will create a new eth device if it can't find the MAC address from a previous one.

Thanks, the signature is just a belief that these machines have more than enough power for limited use single purposes, especially without GUI interfaces, I actually ran a web and VPN server for the longest time on a PowerComputing Mac clone with a 601 CPU from back when Apple tried the licensing model.

I'd still be interested in seeing what udev says, if you wouldn't mind, looking and maybe posting the output here. You should be able to find the file here /etc/udev/rules.d/010_netinterfaces.rules.
