Networking Problems


First off let me say that I am pretty much a newbie with all of this stuff but here we go. I installed Debain Woody 2.2,20 or so and everything was coming up roses. Then came the time that I wanted to upgrade the kernel and play with X. So I rebuilt the kernel using OLDConfig and now when I log in I have no IP address. If I run IFConfig I can get onto my local network but I can't get outside of it. I can't ssh in or do anything that I normally would be able to on the old distros. If I go back to the old kernel or into windows I have the same ip addy that I had before. If anyone has any suggestions or any ideas on what I need to do please tell me.

Thanks!

I'm a very very linux newbie. I have no idea what lsmod is. Apparently neither does nix right now either. What is it, how do I get it, aka apt-get what. Also i'm not sure what NIC stands for either. Sorry for my newness to all of this.
Thanks!

NIC = network interface card
lsmod = just login as root and type lsmod in a console

Okay, i'm a few days older and wiser. Turns out there are no modules being loaded. Lsmod has nothing. On the old kernel there was a mod called af_packet being loded. As for my NIC I have a SMC EZ Card 10/100 SMC1211 Series.

At this point I am incredible confused. I have tried to compiling and recompiling the kernel multiple times over with different networking settings. None of the right moduels ever seem to compile let only load. When I did a locate on af_packet, it picks it up in the 2.2.20 kernel folder as a .o and in the 2.4.20 folder it is only a .c . I dunno if that is the right modules to be looking for but its the only thing I can see a difference in.

Thanks in advance.
