Libranet 2.0 is up but I cannot get online or even ping any other machines on the network.
I've been an avid Slackware and Suse user the last 4 years and have been dealing with Linux since 1997. I've been trying to work with Libranet without getting discouraged since it's a bit different than Slack or Suse...getting harder to do.
Anyways, I installed Libra 2.0 and set everything up regarding the network. The IP for the machine is 192.168.1.101, the network is set to 192.168.1.0, the netmask is 255.255.255.0, the broadcast is 192.168.1.255, and the gateway itself is 192.168.1.1. I run a Linksys BEFW11S4 wireless access point/cable router with this setup (yeah, I'm using a cable modem).
The thing is, this is exactly the way I had Libra 1.9.1 set up and it was accessing the internet fine. The 'link' lights on the router and the PCI NIC are lit, but I can't ping the other systems or any host that's online. I can ping eth0 and lo.
There are no eth0 or other networking errors showing up in 'dmesg'. The NIC's driver is also showing when i type 'lsmod'.
'/etc/init.d/networking start' starts up the devices and '/etc/init.d/networking stop' stops them...with the message "Deconfiguring network interfaces: SIOCDELRT: no such process" then shows "done" at the bottom of the message.
Also, my routing table is empty. The 'route' command will not let me add routes either.
I've installed Libranet 2.0 twice, using two different .iso files, the last one coming from the libranet site. I love the way 2.0 is (the software it has) but it looks like I may go back to the 1.9.1 version if I can't get this sorted out.
Any words of wisdom for me?
