    Unhappy Linux Networking prob - Newby


    How do I check if my network card is ok up and running and not disabled, I have linux box which is connected to my lan ( also has windows pc on same lan) I used to be able to ping it but now automatically it just stopped..I cannot ping it even though it is sitting next to my windows pc...I have checked the cable and all is ok. Can the ethernet port automatically shut itself down?????Is there a way to check if the ethernet port is ok..???

    sorry am still new with linux...


    your help is appreciated

    Which distro are you using? There are front end tools and utilities to help with network configuration. Otherwise open a terminal, become su - (or sudo) and do:
    Code:
    ifconfig
    Do you see your device there? Does it have an IP address?
