Configuring Network Card
I am trying to add a network card and I am having a lot of trouble. Can
anyone out there help?
When I enter the command "ifconfig eth0 <cr>", I get:
eth0 Link encap:AMPR NET/ROM HWaddr
BROADCAST RUNNING MTU:0 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
Interrupt:5 Base Address:0x280
The inet, broadcast and mask addresses all look fine. I am assuming that
since the program responded that it tested the IRQ5 and base address
for the network card (Is this a safe assumption?)
When I enter "route -n <cr>", I get the following reponse
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
127.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
and that's it! There is no entry for my network card.
So, I try to add it to the system.
When I enter the following: "ifconfig eth0 126.96.36.199", I get:
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device
If I then enter "route add 188.8.131.52", I get
SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
What's going on?
Thanks in advance,
