AFAIK the ifconfig commands are the same amongst distros but not all distros use /etc/network/interfaces. There's a page about configuring Puppy networking here. Or you could try the more direct
Code:
ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 192.168.2.200 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
ifconfig eth0
Good luck!

That's good that finally we were able to configure a computer with the right IP to connect to the router and bad that (as we were half-expecting because of no blinking lights on the router when resetting) you were not able to connect to the router. Strange that both 192.168.2.1 and 254 resulted in "connection refused" but it does indicate something active on both those addresses as opposed to getting a timeout message. All of which takes us to the last ditch option, trying to reload the router firmware following procedures here. Not an easy procedure but will only cost time ... as long as you have time, there's nothing to loose

the firmware stuff to know if flashing for your model

Quote:
According to its User Manual which you kindly linked in this post the default IP address of this device is 192.168.2.254 (page 15).
remember that installing DD-WRT will change your router's IP address from 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.1.1. The user will be "root" and password "admin".
Quote:
Note: DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT TRY FLASHING DD-WRT onto this particular router, you will gain no serious advantage and will be left with a router with no web based administration interface and will have to re-flash to original firmware.
