No, send current output of ifconfig.

Strange, if FTP works it should at least print the route to your PC,
something like:     *        U     0      0        0 eth0


Recently I changed the IP address on the switch so it is using
and as a network. It doesn't seem to be a gateway address
configured at this time and it don't work using the route command. I have
rebooted the Linux system several times because I tried to use DHCP
instead and I couldn't deactive it..

Anyway, what happens now is that if I ftp: ftp.debian.org, it brings up the
IP numbers and it says it can't connect. The connection is sleeping for
20 seconds.

I will not do anything more at this time until I get more information on how
to fix this. My theory here is, if I managed to fix the gateway on the Linux
system, everthing "should" be alright. I don't think I have done anything
wrong in the Windows system, then of course, I can't be 100% that I
didn't accidently change something, but I don't think so.
