I'm having trouble with a new installation of Redhat 5.Under
4.2,identical set up settings resulted in an instant working
system,but not under 5...Machine is AMD K5 with 64 megs,and a Virge
S3 video card,and SB16 PNP sound card.M/Board is an Asus TX-97 E
Setup is cable modem on a single fixed IP address.This is hung off a
generic NE2000 network card,that Redhat sees OK at boot up.
My machines fixed IP address is 126.96.36.199
The default gateway (cable modem) is on 188.8.131.52
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
DNS Server 184.108.40.206
I can't ping the default gateway (cable modem) on a numeric address
of 220.127.116.11 it just sits there 100% packet loss.
A command of netstat -rn gives the following:
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags MSS Window irtt Iface
18.104.22.168 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 1500 0 0 eth0
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 3584 0 0 lo
0.0.0.0 22.214.171.124 0.0.0.0 UG 1500 0 0 eth0
When doing a "route" command,the last line does not up until it has
been left alone for at least 2 minutes.That doesn't seem right.The
cursor sits after the immediate showing of the first 2 lines ,and
then 2 minutes later the last line pops up...
Doing a route -n I get all 3 lines appearing immediately.
I don't know what to try next,as under X windows,the Network
Configurator shows all settings to be appear correct.Can someone give
me any idea what's up ?
Thanks a lot!
