  3. [SOLVED] Re: How to get my computer a static IP from linksys router

    OK, the first problem - being able to get out to the outside world - is you broke the gateway - the gateway address is typically the same as the address of the router from the LAN side (in this case,...

    Well, yeah, "some time" is a bit less than specific :D

  15. [ubuntu] Re: Cannot connect a 2nd ubuntu pc to network.

    OK, so it looks like the disk is working and the BIOS can see it. It appears that the "Error 21" is a GRUB error - a Google search for "grub error 21" turns up quite a few hits - you might look...
