Finding the Network
I'm fairly new to linux but I'm trying to get a CentOS machine running. I have it installed, but I can't connect to the internet. No network.
I have a cable modem running through a linksys router. I've tried setting the Linux box up as a DHCP client - it fails. It doesn't find anything. I've tried setting it up with a static ip like 192.168.1.101 (255.255.255.0) and then setting the gateway to the router 192.168.1.1.
I'm really lost. I don't know where to begin on how to troubleshoot this. Here is some extra info. If anyone can point me in the right direction, thank you.
inet addr: 192.168.1.101
netstat -nr shows:
Destination Gateway GenMask
192.168.1.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0
0.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0
Ping of router returns: Destination Host Unreachable
Google: centos network config
Yeah, I got that far, but it's still not happening for me.
