View Full Version : Lost my connection

27th July 2006, 08:32 PM
Umm hello... I lost my internet connection and the problem is due to software as the computer can access the internet using knoppix. The last thing I did was install and configure mysql and a phpbb forum, everything worked fine, I rebooted, and my internet connection was gone. I even cannot connect to my router. I can still access my webserver by using my internal ip address though.

Trouble is, since I'm a Windows XP veteran, I have no idea how to troubleshoot the problem. I am asking for someone to hold my hand through the process of troubleshooting as I don't know the first thing about linux networking. The only thing I have done is run ifconfig and I don't really know what it told me because I didn't know what to look for...

Will someone help me?

What's the output (as root) of ifconfig?

Are you statically or dynamically binding your ip?
