I have troubles with my network.
I'm dedicating an old machine to be a router/firewall.
It's a p75 with 3 network cards:
- eth0, PCI (eepro100) -> external interface
- eth1, ISA (ne) -> LAN
- eth2, ISA (3c509) -> DMZ
I put this into my /etc/network/interfaces for eth0:
iface eth0 inet static
gateway 192.168.1.254 (this is the IP of my DSL modem/router)
I can't ping the gateway with eth0 nor with eth2, but the same config works
I'm sure that the network cards work properly, as I installed woody by the
network using eth0 trought DHCP.
I can't see where is the problem.
Two little things whom I don't know if they link to my problem :
- ifconfig eth0 gives me this line:
UP BROADCAST MULTICAST : there's not "RUNNING"
- cat /proc/pci shows me this:
5: 1 XT-PIC NE2000
9: 4021 XT-PIC eth0
10: 0 XT-PIC eth2
I don't know if there is a links, but i have the name of the driver instead
of eth1, and eth1 is the only interface which works...
Some ideas ?
Thanks in advance,
PS: Please excuse my poor english...
