Network stopped working... why?
Posted on 1997-08-31
This is a wierd one. I had my linux box with a NE2000 compatable nic running yesterday. I telnetted, I FTPed, it worked. I cheered and jumped for joy, shut down, and watched tv. Today, it does not work. The nic works... the problem is that every site I try to hit... no route to host. I cannot even resolve hostnames via my dns host. Cant ping my gateway, cant see my mailserver, all of which should be on the same network. I am using a cablemodem via my cable company. In Win95 when I move the cable, it works great... it just stopped working in UNIX. Does anyone know a possible reason, or do you think my ISP/Cable company noticed something (me logging on via my win95 box and then my unix box) and shut down access for it? Any ideas?
