I just installed Debian 6 and I have no network, I cannot connect to Internet or something, I am trying to figure out what could be possible wrong, but I don't know, I had to download a package when I was installing for the firmware of the network hardware, it says it "worked" but I don't know, because I still can not configure the network.
I tried doing /sbin/ifconfig and something like this is being shown
eth0 link encap Ethernet HWaddr 00:44:38:bd:eb:07 inet addr:192.168.1.24 Bcast:192.168.1.255 mask:255.255.255.0 UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTO:500 metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frames:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collision:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0B) TX bytes0 (0.0B) Interrupt: 25
and at my /etc/network/interfaces I have something like this
auto lo I commented: allow-hotplug eth0 auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.24 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.1.1 broadcast 192.168.1.255 gateway 192.168.1.1 dns-nameservers 192.168.1.1
I also did an eth0 up ... nothing seems to be working, any idea?? any help? I have 2 network boards... both have Internet connections.
Thanks in advance.
