Unhappy New install now will not access internet


Evening all,
I have just followed the Very Verbose Debian Installation guide (with a few changes) to install Debian Sarge/Etch on my PIII 800 128mb RAM Compaq Armada Laptop. I'm running XFCE4 as my sole GUI. The computer is connected by cable to my router, and out on ASDL. Yesterday Linux was seeing the internet fine, I was downloading and updating using synaptic fine.
Today Internet has ceased working, while I am using a different socket on the router, everything is as it was yesterday. I have tried pinging my router, I get the following response.

ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted

I am pinging in root, and I cannot seem to work it out. Two other things quickly, there is a folder named ANONYMOUS next to my user account in /home, which seems a little odd. Secondly I cannot seem to use ctrl alt F1 (2,3,4 ect) to get into the terminals. any ideas.
This is my fourth attempt on a Debian install, and I'm still having fun and learning alot. Perhaps it was a mistake to allow etch patches down? I don't know. Appreciate your feedback.

Thanks,
Stimz

Can you (as root) post the response to ifconfig? Also try ifconfig eth0 up - that's a zero, by the way.

ifconfig eth0 up, pressed enter went to another line, I assume that means it worked
I go to mozilla try google get error message saying "www.google.com could not be found. Please check the name and try again"
Thanks XavierP.

Oh dear, Actually I can ping 192.168.150.101, not my router (which I belive is 192.168.150.1). I have a strange creeping feeling that the abouve IP is my linux computer correct? Still can't get out on the net.
Many thanks XavierP.

Regards,
Stimz

p.s. I am well chuffed, I just noticed that I have had a promotion from "Newbie" to "Member". Well Chuffed Indeed!

I am currently typing on my windows laptop which is on wireless. I have a wireless airstation with three windows laptops on, I have a Draytek router which the airstation is plugged in. My linux laptop is plugged directly into the router.
I am not sure whether this inet addr:192.168.150.101 is the address for my linux station or the router. I suspect it is for my linux box, as memory seems to say that the router is 150.1
I have tried pinging the other laptops without success I get the following message:

ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted

I am using ping in root.
Regards,
Stimz

I am a bit of a but hey...
thanks for the help will catch you tommorrow morning. g'night

192.168.150.101 is the Linux machine. So it has contacted the router and picked up an ip address. The only difference in your ifconfig and mine is that I don't have the ipv6 settings. I seem to recall that that has caused problems for others (and me). Try disbling ipv6 and repinging.

You have wireless at your house

and you have found a suspicious folder on a machine that is connected to this by a wire? I would suspect that it is a possibility that someone is playing games with that situation. How much do you know about your wireless setup? Are you using SECURE protocols? Have you gone outside your house to test how far away you can be and still gain access to this?

It sounds to me like if you are going to have all of this connected and VULNERABLE on the same networks, you need to be more thorough on that end of things. For instance, turn it OFF COMPLETELY if you have to leave your place (or if no one at all is there). Common sense type of stuff. ASSUME that someone will take advantage of this if you do not go out of your way to secure the wireless end of this
