I have successfully created a host file at /etc/hosts, and TCP/IP is active
because I can ping 127.0.0.1 and I can open Apache at 127.0.0.1
However (yes finally...) I cannot ping anything on my small local network.
When I ping 192.168.1.12 I get
ping:sendto:Network is unreachable
Furthermore when run ifcongfig I get no references to etho0
Any sugestions? I know the cable is OK and the card is alive because I can
see the light on my hub where the cable is plugged in...
I've read HowTo's and FAQ's but nada...
What do I need to do to get networking going
