Complete lack of connectivity in Debian install
I just ran the Debian installer and now I'm in the process of configuring my system and downloading software. The problem is that I can't get any data to go in or out of the computer. I've determined that the problem is not with the external network, because my laptop connects to the Internet just fine via the same jack. I installed with Sarge.
The driver for my ethernet card (eth1) is sk98lin, and the driver appears in the output of lsmod.
Here's some potentially useful command output:
It strikes me as odd that absolutely no packets have been sent or received on this interface, and yet the light is flashing when I plug it into the wall.
