Re: Wierd issue with Comcast and Linux..

Hi,

If you want help, you need to answer the questions asked ... Orion asked for the results of "ifconfig"

Cheers,

Sounds like he figured it out. Router problem. Problem solved. Good enough, right.

The router dying may be true, but I think it's orthogonal.

The fact that the OP doesn't even have an eth0 configured means even if the router were working properly, it wouldn't work. So I agree with you.

The OP should provide sudo ifconfig -a output. Sounds like the ethernet card isn't being recognized or the kernel/module support isn't there.

Not to drum the issue into the ground but when people ask for help, they need to provide the data requested.

At this point, I'm /less/ likely to help the OP.

Ah crap.

Configured it perfectly(or so I thought)...but it still doesn't connect.

(even though it shows that I'm getting a IP address on my Linux PC.)

Too weird.

as root

ifdown eth0
ifup eth0

that should work in ubuntu, but, i don't consider ubuntu, debian, so it might not, but, that paste we need

Should run an ifconfig -a instead of ifconfig. ifconfig by itself will only list adapters with active ethernet activity.

ifconfig -a will list all ethernet devices, whether online or not.

Is it possible, as a test, to connect the computer directly to the modem, and then reboot the modem, then the computer? That will take the router out of the loop.
