Question setup all right ?

Hi there im new to linux.
I installed mandrake linux and set up all my networkcard ip address etc.
when i do "route" or "ifconfig" all addresses etc. are allright but i cant ping other machines in my network also the machine with linux on it cant be pinged if i ping a machine from linux i always get: Destination Host unreachable.
When i ping the linux itself (it's address is it responds.
the networkcard is allright and the switch shows traffic when i ping another machine but no response nothing.

what else can i do ?

1. Do you have a router or is everything on the same subnet?
2. If everything is on the same subnet, is the subnet mask of your linux box "compatible" with the subnet masks of the other machines on the network? If you don't know how to calculate subnet masks, just set it to the same as your other machines.

I've got a hardware router including a 4 port switch which all machines are connected to
the subnet/subnet mask is the same on all machines, its Class-C subnet mask (the one used for small networks)

Did you ping the IP Adresses or the Hostnames? because if you Ping Hostnames and you haven't got any DNS, it will look into the hostfile if the host exists in there. Then it takes the IP from your hosttable and pings it. if there is no entry it can't be pinged by hostname. only for IP Adresses...

I can't remember if you need to define a default path, but try this.

If your IP address is, you would then create a default gateway of, note that the last octet is a 1. that is the lowest ip address for that set of octets.

Try this with: route add default

See if that works. Your syntax may vary.
