Ping localhost doesn't use the nic, internal inerface.


Ping something else on your net.

Nothing else will ping at all.

Bring down the eth(x) interface, remove the module for the nic, modprobe the module and look for error messages.

Total newbie here Greg. Could you please be more explicit? Also am I right in thinking that both lights being on on the nic and also the light on on my switch may point to a software rather than hardware failure?

I should also mention I'm using the tulip driver for a netgear fa310tx, maybe that isn't a good one to use. However it did work for a few days; weird?
