    No problem here. Maybe a routing problem of your provider?

    Thank you Falko. But that is not the reason for the problem. I did the install of everything else without editing /etc/network/interfaces at the beginning.
    Then just before I did the above I filled in what I thought were the IP addresses for
    /etc/network/interfaces and then the screw up.
    Obviously, my numbers were wrong. So could you please tell me which numbers to use?
    Thank you

    The Connection Information from my AT & T router are as follows:
    I did not include the IPv6 information.

    Internet IPv4 Address
    Internet Gateway IP Address

    Local Network
    Gateway IPv4 Address

    IP Information
    Primary DNS Address
    Secondary DNS Address .

    IP Interface
    IP Address Netmask Name eth0

    Network Routing Table
    Destination Netmask Gateway
    Destination Netmask Gateway

    Host Routing Table
    Destination Netmask Gateway br0
    Destination Netmask Gateway ppp0

    LAN Information
    Gateway IPv4 Address
    Gateway Netmask

    Devices on LAN
    IP Address MAC Address xxxxx Name RB(me) Status Active
    IP Address MAC Address xxxx Name bmc-server(ubuntu) Active

    After the above problem, I reinstalled the entire thing without touching /etc/network/interfaces and everything including the ISPConfig3 downloaded and installed OK.

    So please tell me the right numbers to use.

    Thanks in advance

    Try this:

    # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
    # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
    # The loopback network interface
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    # The primary network interface
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
