Every time I opt for wireless anything, I always end up regretting it. :)
Ya just gotta love the simple fixes!:lol:
Okay so I am getting the same error even after I used the remedy I provided. I need help again! :cry:
What is your network setup? This is the exact same problem I was having, I was statically assigning my address and forgetting 192.168.0.1 is my routers IP
(aka my gateway's IP address, which is a conflict)
Then I switched routers and I was setting my gateway to the wrong gateway.
... actually ... I don't see you setting up your gateway at all...
please post the contents of...
Each one of those commands checks to make sure you setup static addressing correctlyCode:
where 192.168.0.200 would be your ip (/24 is standard netmask iirc)Code:
ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.200/24
route add default gw 192.168.0.1
echo nameserver 192.168.0.1 > /etc/resolv.conf
where gw 192.168.0.1 is your routers IP address, if you are connected directly into your ISP's modem/antenna then you need to find it's gateway with a dhcp enabled computer (windows, start->run->"cmd"->"ipconfig /all")
And the nameserver is usually the same as your gateway, or provided by your ISP. If your router/modem does not have that feature (rare nowdays) and you don't want to call your ISP or find the papers they gave you. Use 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, or 184.108.40.206 however they aren't as reliable as your ISP.
And you could try
However if dhcpcd isn't on your machine to begin with (like mine)Code:
You'll need to setup a static address (commands above) and then emerge dhcpcd.
Sorry to bump such an old thread, but my problem is similar to the one that was discussed here. Only I must be missing a step or two in here somewhere because I can't get it to work.
I'm trying to follow the three commands above to so I'm connected to my wireless network.
I think I've got the first two lines right, but I'm new to this and sadly don't understand the /etc/resolv.conf segment.
So far I've got "echo nyc.rr.com (my IP address) >" but I'm afraid after that I'm at a loss and I haven't been able to find an explanation online.
Thanks in advance for any help!
Hi and Welcome! :)
Like you mentioned, this is an old thread.
It might be better if you start a fresh one, giving as much info as possible.
Describe the problem in detail.
List your version of Linux, which commands you've used as well as any errors that may have come up.
