I am trying to install a Debian 3.1 server with the help of this tutorial
When I want to change from DHCP to static, it become impossible to connect to the internet, even after a complete reboot. I can still ping the router and the other computers in my LAN, and I get pinged by the other computers.
The IP I choose is in the correct router's range for the static IP.
ifconfig will show the choosed static ip but the router list wont list it.
I had exactly the same problem with my father's computer which run win98; I thought it was due to the fact it is an old box and I then left his computer running on DHCP.
Has anybody found the solution for that problem?
