How to rerun network configuration wizard script?


Hello ppl
I'm new to linux administration and want to setup networking on my fresh debian sarge 31. During installation, debian installer was not able to find DHCP server and my network is totally unworking.

Questions:
0) How to run a wizard to setup the network?
/usr/sbin/base-config has not appropriate topic as I seen.

1) I'm not sure my netwoek card has been detected. How could I know it is installed and working? I've not found any /dev/eth* files :-(

P.S. file /etc/network/interfaces is almost empty, only:
Code:
auto lo
iface lo inter loopback

What kind of network connection do you have -- ADSL, ethernet/dhcp, or ethernet/static?

Also, could you please post the output of the "ifconfig -a" command (needs to be executed as root)? That should tell if Debian has detected your netcard.

I had faced some similar issues.

Use:
Code:
#dhclient eth1(or whatever is your network interface)
and to find your network interface do:

ifconfig

You'll probably want to make the net connection to start automatically when you boot to Debian. To do this, add the following to /etc/network/interfaces :
Code:
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
Of course, if your netcard interface is something other than eth0, then use the correct interface instead.
