Sure :-) But I still think it's a problem.
In my configuration, lo is:

change all the settings again. Now my /etc/network/interfaces is

Maybe I wasn't paying attention, but if eth0 is on a PC Card rather than
a fixed connection, it shouldn't be "auto". Probably not relevant to
this problem, though.
iface eth0 inet static
I would have thought this says your interface is 22.214.171.124 and any
traffic to 150.217.140.* should be routed to the gateway at
126.96.36.199. You can't get to the internet from there :-) If you
want _that_ to be a gateway, the netmask should be 0.0.0.0.
so, I believe, I should have the lo on again, but when I do route -n I get
I think setting "gateway", above, dropped the default gateway on lo
(which I still say you don't want) and set it on eth0.

Try dropping the first route there. If 220.127.116.11 is _really_ a
valid gateway, it's all you should need. However, it's acting like
18.104.22.168 is not a gateway to the outer world.
and I seem to get only to my domain, not outside.

so, both eth0 and lo are actually up, but lo has disappeared in the route
table. And although the gateway and dns (resolv.conf is ok) are on the
right values, I get just as far as my work group....I'm getting
confused....what am I doing wrong?
