So, I set up my server using " The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Gusty Gibbon 7.10 ". When setting up I had a wireless PCI adapter installed as eth1. But to change from the unreliability of the wireless, I removed the wireless PCI adapter card. I connected my ethernet card to the router using a crossover cable. I attempted to run Code: apt-get update which attempts to connect to the internet but fails. It also failed when the wireless PCI adapter was installed. ifconfig output looks like this: Code: brad@cougforlife:~$ ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:40:2B:77:37:3E inet addr:192.168.1.112 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::240:2bff:fe77:373e/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:1760 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:199 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:162603 (158.7 KB) TX bytes:29858 (29.1 KB) Interrupt:20 lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1 RX packets:78 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:78 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:5784 (5.6 KB) TX bytes:5784 (5.6 KB) /etc/network/interfaces looks like Code: brad@cougforlife:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces # This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them.

My next question is how do I set up my server to automatically start if it loses power because of a power outage. The only way I've found to do this is using WAKE ON LAN. I followed this page: http://n01getsout.com/blog/2006/11/16/wake-on-lan-on-linux-with-a-linksys-wrt54g/ I attempted to wake my computer up using the web based utility. It didn't work. I do have my router forwarding port 9 via UDP to 192.168.1.112 which should work. Anyone know a better solution to this problem or how to set up WOL? Thanks!
