    Can not connect to LAN.


    Hi all,

    I have a problem with my PC.
    I've just installed RHEL 4.7, then i've setup ip (192.168.81.122), subnet mask (255.255.0.0), default gateway(192.168.81.1), dns. But when i ping to 192.168.81.1, then i recieved message "Destination Host unreachable".
    I checked the leds on switch and NIC are both light.

    My NIC is: D-Link DFE-528TX 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet

    #ifconfig
    inet addr: 192.168.81.122
    Bcast:192.168.255.255
    Mask: 255.255.0.0
    RX packets:1 errors:6

    #route -n
    169.254.0.0 * 255.255.0.0 (I have never add this net anymore)
    192.168.0.0 * 255.255.0.0
    default 192.168.81.1 0.0.0.0

    I try many ways, but it's still display that response. Can anyone give me another ways to connect to my LAN network.
    Please help, thank you.

    Regards,

    Hello and Welcome.
    Are you sure your IP is correct? it's not 192.168.1.1? Did you look at the router and see if it has the correct IP settings? Or log into the router itself and make sure the IP is correct.

    Your PC's IP configuration set to DHCP. Probably PC cannot get DHCP IP address from the Router thats why 169.x shows up.

    RHEL may not be enabled with class less routing... can you change your subnet to : 255.255.255.0 and give a try?
