Re: lost network connection
Run ifconfig and post the output.
What's the hardware, especially the motherboard if it's on onboard NIC.

this might sound like a rather brod question, but I don't know how else to
ask it, and I'm hoping somebody will have a real good idea of the problem I
I've just upgraded my Sarge server to Etch, which all seemed to go quite
nicely, but now after a reboot I cannot access the machine. The network is
closed and I cannot login using my SSH client. During the installation I
chose to keep my current configuration files, which is the default anyway.
Does anybody know if Etch installs any network service that might be
blocking the network interface? Firewall? Could NFS be causing the
problem? I never had/used NFS before, and I believe I saw NFS being
installed during the dist-upgrade. I do not use any other services that
could/would deny me access that I know of. I have rsync installed, but I
don't actually use it yet.
Thanks in advance,
