Debian has no network, Knoppix does
I'm trying to run Debian Woody, with 2.4.18, however, I can't get any network access with Debian. I was thinking hardware problems for some time, and then a friend of mine showed me Knoppix, with which I can access the internet, no problem. I need to get Debian working, though.
Here's everything I've done:
The driver is loaded from modules.conf:
... tulip #for SMC1244TX-CA card [eof]
# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8) # The loopback interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The first network card - this entry was created during the Debian installation # (network, broadcast and gateway are optional) auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 126.96.36.199 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 188.8.131.52 broadcast 184.108.40.206 gateway 220.127.116.11

My only idea is that it may be a driver problem, however Debian came with tulip driver, which I would have thought would be the final word on the matter. The driver from Knoppix was not transferable (which didn't surprise me, I think the Knoppix kernel is 2.4.26) and despite following online tulip compiling instructions to the letter, I have been unable to create a new one. Is this perhaps where I should concentrate my effort?
Could it be a buggy Debian install (this is install number 4, only the first one was verified buggy, and nothing seems to have changed with each subsequent reinstall)? The longer I spend on this, the more respect I have for Microsoft.
