PWS600au network problems
I have just installed Debian 3.1 (sarge) on my Digital Personal Workstation
600au but I still have a (BIG) problem: I cannot make the network work.
At least, the network script (/etc/init.d/networking) works fine ...
ifconfig -a gives what one should expect ...
netstat -rn shows the right routes ...
but still it is impossible to ping to other PCs in my LAN.
I suspect (but I do not know if I am correct) that the problem could be in the
(integrated) ethernet card. It has both a BNC and a RJ45 plug and I use the
second one to connect to the LAN.
The ewa0_mode is set to "Twisted Pair" and, as a matter of fact, when I boot
the digital Unix 4.0D the network works fine.
I tried something like
set ewa0_mode auto-negotiation
in the SRM console, but I was not allowed. Similarly, after booting linux I
ifconfig eth0 media 10baseT or
ifconfig eth0 media auto
and again I was not allowed.
I have no more (confused) idea :-)
I hope some of you can give me some hints. Thank you very much for your
p.s. I did not report the exact output of the various commands because I had
to reboot under DUX4.0D in order to send this email. If you think that some
output could be useful, do not hesitate to let me know. Thank you again.
