    I have been trying to set up a small server for my non profit club and following Falko's instructions for 9.3 or 10.1, when I get to the part about changing to static add. and name sever and address changes, then go to test internet conn. I get failed every time, could it be my ISP, qwest.net, DSL modem 2700 2wire with hub. If I install SuSE Linux and just accept the auto-configure that goes with normal install it connects to the internet just fine. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank You all that help! bigfishbite:)

    It seems as if you're using the wrong network settings. What's your router's internal IP address?

    2wire responce

    So with this information what should I set my network settings to?

    Can I use static IP addresses for my home computers and appliances?

    Question
    Can I use static IP addresses for my home computers and appliances?

    Answer
    Yes.

    The HomePortal reserves the first 32 addresses in the HomePortal network subnet for static use. By default the HomePortal uses the non-routable 192.168.1.0 / 255.255.255.0 subnet. Addresses 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.63 are reserved for static IP addresses. The HomePortal's DHCP server delivers addresses 192.168.1.64 - 192.16.1.253 to dynamic IP clients on your HomePortal network.

    Note: The HomePortal Home Network IP address scheme can also use 172.16.0.0 / 255.255.0.0 and 10.0.0.0 / 255.255.0.0, or you can configure your own subnet.

    The HomePortal supports both Dynamic and Static IP addressing on your HomePortal network. The HomePortal is a DHCP server and will automatically assign an IP address to a network device upon request. However, you can manually configure a static IP address for any device on your HomePortal network.

    The first 32 addresses (.1 - .63) in the address range are allocated to static IP addresses. The next 218 addresses (.64 - .254) are allocated to the HomePortal’s DHCP server to deliver to dynamic clients.

    Below are the settings for the three home network IP range options offered by the HomePortal :



    Default Settings:

    Static: 192.168.1.1 - .63
    Dynamic: 192.168.1.64 - .250
    Reserved: 192.168.1.251-.253
    Subnet: 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway: 192.168.1.254
    DNS: 192.168.1.254 Option 1:

    Static: 172.16.1.1 - .32
    Dynamic: 172.16.1.33 - .250
    Reserved: 172.16.1.251-.254
    Subnet: 255.255.0.0
    Default Gateway: 172.16.0.1
    DNS: 172.16.0.1
    Option 2:

    Static: 10.0.1.1 - .32
    Dynamic: 10.0.1.33 - .250
    Reserved: 10.0.1.251-.254
    Subnet: 255.255.0.0
    Default Gateway: 10.0.0.1
    DNS: 10.0.0.1

    So it seems your router's internal IP address is 192.168.1.254. So use 192.168.1.100 as IP address for your SuSE box and 192.168.1.254 as the gateway.

    this is crazy

    I must be the dumbest person on the planet, I have done every thing you have said and still failure. I have set all the network settings like you have said, does the host name have to be server or can it be any word, and does the domain name have to be anything or is there something it has to be, and does named address (DNS) have to be any particular address or what? I thought I was half way smart, but this is making no since to me why this is not working. Please help.

    Ok, when you do this, can you post the output of
    Code:
    ifconfig
    and
    Code:
    route-nee
    here?
