[debian-users] bride of 3Com 3c900 NIC troubles
Many thanks to all the good people who replied. I agree with those who
prefer editing text files to using (e.g.) linuxconf, but it's hunting down
those files which is causing me trouble.
I put 3c59x into /etc/modules and that did part of the trick. Then edited
/etc/network/interfaces so now eth0 is starting at boot. So far so good.
I'm still not getting any packets out, though. I have nameservers in
/etc/resolv.conf. I have *no idea* where to configure a default gateway. Do
I need to do a 'route add'? Some documentation I've seen makes reference to
"/etc/init.d/network" but that file isn't present on my machine.
Furthermore, is there anything else I need to do to get a working 'net
connection? Done: bring up interface, nameservers; doing: gateway.
