NIC detected, but no connectivity
I'm running Slackware 11.
I have not been able to ping the gateway (router which slackbox is connected directly to).
I can ping lo (loopback) but nothing else.
The results of ifconfig -a displays all adapters and they appear to be detected, one even has an IP address assigned.
I ran netconfig, and I assign a manual IP address, however no adapters get this address after running netconfig.
eth0 has an IP addr, and subnet mask.
When I try to add a default gateway to the routing table I get:
"SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable."
I edited /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf and specified static IP's for all three of the adpaters including 2 hardwired NICS and 1 wireless NIC.
Afterwards I could connect directly to the router/gateway. I cannot however ping past the router. I'm sure I need to add some more routes to get out, but I assumed having the default gateway would takecare of everything.
