    try "ifconfig" which will tell you about the network interfaces, mine looks like this :-
    Code:
    linux-g55o:~ # ifconfig
    lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
              inet addr:127.0.0.1  Mask:255.0.0.0
              inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
              UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
              RX packets:229 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
              TX packets:229 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
              collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
              RX bytes:18756 (18.3 Kb)  TX bytes:18756 (18.3 Kb)

              inet6 addr: fe80::211:50ff:fedd:a04b/64 Scope:Link
              UP BROADCAST NOTRAILERS RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
              RX packets:154644 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

              collisions:7959 txqueuelen:1000
              RX bytes:102102565 (97.3 Mb)  TX bytes:1129743 (1.0 Mb)

    'netstat -r' is also useful, in that it gives you the routing table.

    have fun
