    Debian Network Problem


    Hi,

    Well. When i instal debian woody, i configure my LAN correctly and when i make apt-get or try to ping something, it starts to ping and then the net goes down.

    I have the debian PC connected to a switch. The switch is conected to a red hat box, the gateway. The gateway is 192.168.0.1 and the debian machine is 192.168.0.2. I putted 192.168.0.1 as gateway in the debian machine. What could be the problem?

    well . . . it will be impossible to tell you what is wrong without the output of those commands.

    "How much" does the network go down? Can you ping the gateway? Does the interface still show up in ifconfig? Does arp -n give any sensible output?

    okay, can you ping hostnames outside your network (ping linuxforums.org)? If not, how about IP addresses outside your network (ping 65.33.76.33)? If not, can other computers on the network get on the outside network?

    I have a windows machine accessing the internet. Could it be an unsupported ethernet board?

    I can't ping nothing outside my network. The board is very new, from december. Probably thats the problem.
