Is this IP change due to having changed the stanza in

Please see your other thread on connectivity. Have x as 40 and use
ifdown followed by ifup.

Thanks Brian

I had already changed that and I am back to the original problem of loosing connectivity after a reboot.

The /etc/network/interfaces file reads (in its entirety):

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet static
#iface eth0 inet dhcp ## This reflects the earlier suggestion about changing static to dhcp
# dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
    dns-search org

However, as noted - this returns full circle to the original issues.

Things to check:

IS your gateway/router REALLY at ? An error here will lead you to a basically "unconnected" machine, probably you won't be able even to ping the hosts on your LAN or anything. IS there really a dns server at ? An error here will only affect dns names, so you will not be able to reach, say, www.google.com; you will still be able to reach any hosts by specifying their IP numbers directly.
