Good evening all,
Strange situation: I work from a local development machine running apache and lighttpd in tandem. Today I tried to install curl-php5 which stated that the repository is unreachable. After further analysis it seems to me that debian cannot connect to the internet ( outside the network ) for some reason. I do not possess the necessary knowledge to debug this issue any further and have run out of URL's with bash snippets to try. I therefore kindly request your assistance in this matter.
dmesg | grep egiga0 egiga0: mac address changed egiga0: link down egiga0: started egiga0: link up, full duplex, speed 1 Gbps
The network is routed through a switch that connects several computers and the devbox to the modem where the devbox is assiged 192.168.178.30 statically.
The interface egiga0 has the following properties:
ifconfig -a egiga0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 14:d6:4d:a6:97:76 inet addr:192.168.178.30 Bcast:192.168.178.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:7275 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:12545 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:532 RX bytes:646188 (631.0 KiB) TX bytes:14662888 (13.9 MiB) Interrupt:11
As per your request, the output of nano /etc/resolv.conf:
nameserver 192.168.178.1 nameserver 192.168.178.1
and the output of ip route show:
192.168.178.0/24 dev egiga0 proto kernel scope link src 192.168.178.30 188.8.131.52/8 dev egiga0 scope link default via 192.168.178.1 dev egiga0
The machine itself is a d-link sharecenter running the ffp ( fun plug ) debian squeeze. All servers running on it are accessible from the local network as one should expect, however every external command like wget, or ping www.google.nl result in an unresolvable hostname from which I deduce that the internet itself cannot be accessed.
I'll be happy to provide any information requested in order to solve the problem. Input anyone?
