Network Setup Problems...
I'm having problems getting to the internet from my Debian setup over my home network. I just upgraded my connection from dial-up to DSL, but I originally installed the system, via netinstall-cd, over a DSL connection at my brother's house. My wife is still pretty windows-centric so I dual-boot win98, and windows connects fine.
I'm using an alcatel DSL modem and a linksys network everywhere 4 port hub. I loaded the tulip driver for my card, if'ed up eth0 and did `ifconfig'--lo and eth0 show fine, same for `netstat -r'. I did `ifconfig add default gw (router-ip) eth0' to set my gateway. The network works fine internally. I can move around the network fine, transfer samba shares, ping between boxes, but I can't get out of the network for some reason.
I have a linuxcare root-kit mini-cd (for bouts of stupidity and forgetfulness) and when I boot from it and load up the tulip driver and connect to the same gateway ip, no problems--PFM. I've ensured that my base system's network settings match those of the rootkit, but it just doesn't want to connect.
The really frustrating part is--the system was installed over a similar network setup. Is there a config file I've overlooked somewhere that is pointing my gateway to a different ip? Perhaps left over from the network install? I've read and re-read the man pages for ifconfig & route, the correct DNS servers are listed in /etc/resolv.conf, UG flag on my gateway ip but no friggin net. I haven't checked email in nearly two weeks, any ideas?
