Cannot see anything around me!


I just installed FC3 and I cannot see any comp on my internal network. I disabled firewall nothing happend. I cannot ping, telnet or ssh. I checked my ip, netmask.....dozen of times already.
Inernal network is on 192.168.1.0/24 and this comp is 192.168.1.242.

Any Idea?

If you run 'ipconfig' does it show eth0? Do you see your ethernet card when you run 'lspci'?

Its there. This is output from lspci

D-Link system Inc RTL 8139 Ethernet (rev 10)

ifconfig shows eth0 properly configured. Is there anything else besides firewall that prevents computer to be accessed? During installation it ask me if I want SELinux to be configured. I checked NO cause I do not know what is it for.

What does your route and gateway look like? What is the network topology?
good luck.

What is the output from the following?

lspci -v

lsmod

ifconfig -a

route -n

You could also try an

iptables -F

to flush all rules, and see if you can ping then.
good luck.

OK I figured. I feel a little bit embarrassed! This is stupid of course, but will help someone else not to make same mistake. IP I was picked was already in use. As soon as I changed IP everything start to work fine. What bothers me is that I didn't see any message from system saying that I might choose wrong ip.

So guys thanks for help. I guess your time is not completely wated cause this will help someone else in future.

Don't feel bad, I've done the same thing, (more than once if you can believe it). Glad you're sorted.
