Cannot connect to internet or printer
I have sarge in a P3 computer. For months I have been able from it to
connect to the internet and also to print through a print server using CUPS.
Since boot-up on Sunday morning 18 December I was able to connect to the
internet and print. Suddenly, by Sunday evening was unable to do either.
I tested the connections by pingng both the gateway and the print server
-- successfully. Dmesg showed that eth0 is up and running. I was also
able to connect to the internet and print through the print server from
two other computers, both Windows. Other than using Konqueror, the only
operations I performed just before this breakdown was to install the
equivs package and remove xprint.
I have concluded that there is a software problem in the P3 computer,
but do not know what to look for. I would appreciate any and all
