Can't ping residential router
Posted on 2004-08-18
I'm running a very limited (no GUI) install of RH 9 on an Intel box. This is cabled to a hub and from there to a residential router with ADSL Internet.
From the Linux box I can ping other computers on the hub and on the router. However, I cannot ping the router!
All other computers can ping each other and the router but not the Linux box.
During the Linux install I was prompted for network info and entered an assigned IP, the router (192.168.1.1) as the gateway and external DNS server names.
Any suggestion on what could be wrong and how do I get back to the network set-up page.
