Problem solved & thanks


As soon as I changed DNS to 192.168.0.1 (in Network Configuration or /etc/resolv.com), STATIC IP started to work.
THrough this process & members feedback, I learned quite a lot about Networking -- it's interesting.
Thanks a lot for your help.

Another thing you can do is to configure your dhcp client to tell the server what IP address you should give your interface. The other values like /etc/resolve and the gateway address will be provided automatically then.
he want to go static for some reason ..

I am not sure how my response got lost but here is that. As soon as I added 192.168.0.1 as DNS, STATIC IP started working. Thanks to all for your help.
Cheers.

This would give him a fixed static IP address. He might want that if he is running certain services.

@jschiwal do you think putting 192.168.0.1 (modem's IP )in resolv.conf will solve this problem !!!

You mean as I mentioned in my second sentence that you didn't quote?

If you're going to quote me at least don't make it out that I only said half of what I said about the router.

I had tried this and it didn't work. It depends on the router. My system has a config file for the the dhcp client where you can determine whether /etc/resolve.conf is modified or not. Since the ISP's name server addresses could change beyond your control, I think it would be best if it was set by DHCP.
