Saving network settings
Ive got a RTL8139 card, and on startup i am loading the 8139too module. The thing i dont understand is where abouts the network settings are saved..
If i run netconfig and try to ping my router i get "Network is unreachable"
So to set things up i use the following:
Once i have done that i can ping my router and its fine.. what am i doing wrong that the settings are not saved or something??
/sbin/ifconfig -a eth0 192.168.1.4 netmask 255.255.255.0
/sbin/route add default gw 192.168.1.1
What are the default settings the card is given?
Ok, umm.. complete linux noob here :oops:, so im not sure how i can find out the default settings.. :?
I dont know whats happening, but if i go
when i first startup the machine, i only get the local loopback, once i run
and do ifconfig again it now shows the ethernet card as well.. i still however cant ping my router untill i use the commands that i stated in the previous post..
Why would i need to rune netconfig to get my ethernet card to show up??
