    Default Unable to connect to router

    Hi,
    Am a newbie in BT and not so much in linux.
    I'm unable to ping the wireless router at all and hence, the internet.
    After booting up from either USB or Live CD:
    ifconfig eth0 up
    dhcpcd
    the prompt returns after about a minute with no message.
    I cannot ping my wireless router.
    I tried assigning static IP address too.
    Still the same problem

    I've Realtek 8168C PCI-E gigabit ethernet NIC on a ThinkPad.

    Have tried numerous things from all over the forum.
    Please help

    Thanks

    Try:
    Code:
    ifconfig eth0 up
    dhcpcd -k
    rm /etc/dhcpc/*
    dhcpcd -nd eth0

    I tried that but didnt work too.
    Looks like there is a bug in the modules for my Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) gigabit ethernet NIC as mtz29 says in the thread:
    hxxp://forums.remote-exploit.org/showthread.php?t=16654

    I even tried that also but didnt work.

    I got an error only in once when I was executing:
    rmmod rtl8169
    no such module in /proc/modules

    One doubt:
    Am I supposed to execute
    lzm2dir kernel.lzm /
    after the instructions or in the begining?

    btw, I'm running from USB with persistent changes. Changes saved to an ext3 partition on the USB itself.

    Thanks
