Network won't Network

Post by Michael D. Metzle » Sat, 25 Sep 1999 04:00:00



I recently installed RedHat 6.0 on an old machine, added a Linksys EtherFast
card to it, and am trying to get it to talk to the other machines on my LAN.
This is a small LAN that is not connected to the outside world (5 machines
with IP 192.168.1.1 through 192.168.1.5), a mix of Windows 95/98/NT and
Linux RH 5.1(some of the Win machines are dual boot win/Linux).

Here is my problem:  everyone can talk to each other with the exception of
my RH 6.0 machine.  The network switch (Linksys Etherfast 10/100 5-port)
lights indicate all 5 NICs are live, and when I issue a ping from my "new"
machine, all the lights on the switch blink.  However, I only get a ping
response if I ping myself.  The other machines time out if I ping the "new"
machine (192.168.1.4).

netstat -r gives:
192.168.1.4      *      255.255.255.255  UH   0  0  0  eth0
192.168.1.0      *      255.255.255.0      U    0  0  0  eth0
127.0.0.0         *      255.0.0.0             U    0  0  0  lo

netstat on the RH 5.1 boxes gives the same result EXCEPT for the 1st line.

ifconfig gives
inet addr:192.168.1.4  Bcase 192.168.1.255  Mask 255.255.255.0
RX packets: 0 (remainder of RX items = 0 as well)
TX packets: 101 (or whatever)

I'm currently at a loss as to what to try.  Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Mike

I believe that I had the same type of problem. I think that I only added
a gateway and it began to function as a client. i think you should try
something along the lines of:

route add default gw 192.168.1.1 dev eth0

 
 
 

1. After linux's network works, win XP's network cannot work ?

I installed Redhat linux 9.0 in one of my disk partition .
at first, linux cannot recognize broadcom 440x's ethernet card.
Then I download driver through broadcom.com and successfully installed
the ethernet driver.
Now I can surf the net in linux.
But when I return to win XP , it displays "a network cable is
unplugged", but the device is working properly. (the cable is indeed
plugged)
So I failed to link to Internet in XP,but can go online in linux.

Any great man know how this happened?
How to solve this problem?
 Thanks!

7. Redhat 7.1 'eepro100' and 'e100' drivers won't see 10BaseT network

8. CND won't see /dev/sda ??

9. Win95 with IE5 win't look at Linux apache on same network :'-(

10. Bootp - Client's Won't Connect to Network.

11. See's network but won't take connections.

12. Network-to-network PPP with same network portion of IP address

13. OpenBSD 2.9: can't see network until I unplug/re-plug the network cable
