[ubuntu] No eth0

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Im using an old dell tower as a server and im trying to give it a static IP and when i opened the file "etc/network/interfaces" all i got was "auto lo" settings, no "auto eth0"? weird, so i ran "sudo ifconfig" and my auto eth0 was running apparently, there was an ip, netmask etc. So i just added to the /etc/network/interfaces file- auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address netmask broadcast gateway Then ran- "sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart&quot (HowTos)
