    NIC detected, but no connectivity


    I'm running Slackware 11.



    I have not been able to ping the gateway (router which slackbox is connected directly to).


    I can ping lo (loopback) but nothing else.

    The results of ifconfig -a displays all adapters and they appear to be detected, one even has an IP address assigned.


    I ran netconfig, and I assign a manual IP address, however no adapters get this address after running netconfig.

    eth0 has an IP addr, and subnet mask.


    When I try to add a default gateway to the routing table I get:

    "SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable."

    I edited /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf and specified static IP's for all three of the adpaters including 2 hardwired NICS and 1 wireless NIC.

    Afterwards I could connect directly to the router/gateway. I cannot however ping past the router. I'm sure I need to add some more routes to get out, but I assumed having the default gateway would takecare of everything.

    If you try dhcp on eth0 try a netstat -rn that should your gateway info.
