Then you seem to have a network configuration problem.
Your router should be configured as stated by the manual and you have to
configure your network interface with an IP in the same network so you
can reach it.
Show us the output of "/sbin/ifconfig" and then what you get after a

It's almost to the stage of being of 'no never-mind'.
I have to do a 'Windows' install for this course coming up anyway.
I've just done one and got away with everything with using LibreOffice instead and they were over the moon with all the great work I did with 'Word' "This should be kept as an example of how it should be done", etc. but this time I have to use a programme that rides on M$ only, so I'll get that down and convert it over later.
I was going to do a 20GB Debian partition after the Windows install, so a new install was going to be necessary anyway.
The knowledge would be good though.
I'm just beginning to edge under the surface and configure files directly and finding out how many gui apps I can get rid of.
I'm finding it quite an enjoyable process.
