Route table

I am runing Mandrake 9 and trying to install alcatel speedtouch usb adsl modem. I have some problems with the route table.
Now it looks like this:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Iface U 40 eth0 U 40 lo UG 40 eth0

When I try to ping I don't get any answear.
What could be wrong?
Please help me.
Best regards

ifconfig will give you a list of working interfaces and their ip numbers.
I eth0 doesn't show there as, you are pinging into nowhere.
There will be scripts to alter the default gateway (last line in the routing table) to match the ppp0 interface from the modem, which may also not reset the gateway device correctly once the modem is shut off...

Thanks for the answear.

My ifconfig looks like this:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:400:21:32:F7
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:89 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:100
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:5592 (5.4 Kb)
Interrupt:10 Base address:0x7000

lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr: Mask:
RX packets:131 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:131 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
RX bytes:10240 (10.0 Kb) TX bytes:10240 (10.0 Kb)

It seems that eth0 is not pointing at
How should I fix this problem?
You are talking about some scripts. Do you know where I can find them?

Thanks again!
