What have I forgotten? > > Thanks If I understand what is going on, your default route is probably set to 192.168.0.1 (Your old router?) so the system is trying to access 192.168.1.1 through a gateway that is no longer there. You can add a temporary route so you can talk to it. Something like: route add -host 192.168.1.1 eth0 or route add -net 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 eth0 Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
