You will have to provide more info than that. What network card do you have? Does eth0 come up without any errors? Do you use a static ip address or dhcp? What ip address does your router have? What error mesage do you get when you try and ping it?

Sorry I wasn't sure what you would like to see.

3-Com 3c905
Static IP 192.168.1.111
Router Ip 192.168.1.10

"Does eth0 come up without any errors"

If you refering to the boot process then no error is seen.

The error I get when pinging is "Destination host unreachable"
