    Debian computer not connecting to network

    I have a 1998 Compaq computer with Debian installed acting as a web-server. I've configured my router to access it through ssh and a web browser and it was working fine. Then I left for a week, and got back and now I can't connect to it at all, though when I access my router it has that there are the right number of devices connected through Ethernet cables, including this one, and it lists device with the right local IP address. I don't know if this helps, but I have the results of "sudo ifconfig"

    Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:40:d0:01:45:26
    inet6 addr: fe80::240:d0ff:fe01:4526/64 Scope:Link
    RX packets:329413 erros:585659 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:21960004 (20.9 MiB) TX bytes:1299447 (1.2 MiB)
    Interrupt:11 Base address:0x2000
    Link encap:Local Loopback
    inet addr: Mask:
    inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host 
    UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
    RX packets:235331 erros:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:235331 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

    There might be a few typing errors as I just transcribed this from one screen to the other, but if anyone knows what's up or even if they could translate a little bit of what that means, that would be great.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Well, it seems that your ethernet (eth0) is configured for IPv6 protocols. Is this what you want?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
