Yes, that is the gateway/ router IP address - I just checked with the
Unfortunately, it's not as simple as that. Providers have been wrong in
the past. The ultimate check would be: can you reach your router's
configuration page by specifying 192.168.1.254 in your browser?
Yes, the DNS address given is accurate - domain names resolve fine
(once I can get connected).
Well, AFAIK the domain names may be resolving fine because dhcp finds a
working DNS server for you. The specified DNS servers (as per your
static configuration) "may" still be wrong. You have to understand that
dhcp and static are quite separate: once you enable *dhcp*, all other
entries in your /etc/network/interfaces get disregarded, and any errors
therein will not be picked up (and may thus pass completely unnoticed).
The reverse is also true: as soon as you enable *static* no
auto-configuration is taking place anymore -- you'll have to get your
address, network, gateway, broadcast and other stanzas exactly right to
make it work. In this configuration, potential errors in your
/etc/network/interfaces will *not* pass unnoticed at all.
I apologize if you already know that, didn't want to sound
