    I was following this how-to. As I reach the network configuration part, I have tried putting in his example address, netmask, network, broadcast and gateway address. It turned out to be not working for me.

    How do I know my details? I have searched in my Belkin wireless G-router website at but there was no such details. By the way, I use dhcp. I am not sure if I can change tha in my server to a static address.

    Can anyone help here?

    Thanks, greatly.

    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

    Hi Falko, Thank you.

    I will try it later, as I am fixing the partitioning part with my hard drive 0. Earlier it was okay, now I am just arranging my partitions again so it is easier to manage.

    Thanks a lot for your help. :) I will definitely post back if it works or not.

    Thanks, again.

    Is your system in a local network?
