This shows that the eth0 interface has no ip address associated with it, nor
does it have a default gateway. It hasn't actually been configured.

If you want to configure this interface manually, then enter the following
in /etc/network/interfaces (feel free to adjust the IP addresses to suit
your network set-up - you mention that you use as the gateway,
so I've used the same value).

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static

 Alternatively, you may prefer to configure this interface up to use DHCP
and have the router hand out ip addresses - your choice.


When one person suffers from a delusion it is insanity. When many people
suffer from a delusion it is called religion.
