I have had a Networking problem over this past week that I hope someone here has the ability to resolve for me or can show me the procedure that I need to follow in order to resolve this problem myself.
PROBLEM: The problem is my inability to Ping or access my own Hostname. After a Fresh Boot of the System, this is the information that comes up when I attempt to ping my own Hostname.
ping -c 3 sevencardstud.dynaccess.com PING sevencardstud.dynaccess.com (192.168.1.47) 56(84) bytes of data. From sevencardstud (192.168.1.45) icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable From sevencardstud (192.168.1.45) icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable From sevencardstud (192.168.1.45) icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable --- sevencardstud.dynaccess.com ping statistics --- 3 packets transmitted, 0 received, +3 errors, 100% packet loss, time 2015ms pipe 3
I'm able to get to the Internet fine but no one can come into my system successfully. This System has been very stable and I have been running it for Months without any problems till this occured. This problem just came up after a normal re-boot of the System. I don't remember making any changes to my System prior to the Re-boot but that's not to say that I might not have screwed up something unintentially.
As a futher indication of this problem, I have a User written Server running in my system using port 7000 I have not been able to bring this Server up successfully ever since this Re_boot. I get the following error message from the bind command: Server Name= sevencardstud.dynaccess.com, Server Address= 192.168.1.47
bind: Cannot assign requested address BIND ErrorProblem with the Server connecting to the Network
No changes have been made to this Server for over a year.
CONFIGURATION: My System is Ubuntu, Precise, 12.04. My Router/Modem is a Westell DSL 6100.
NETWORK COMMANDS: Following are the output of various Network related commands that I thought might be useful to anyone trying to help me with this problem. Any additional information that you would need, I will gladly supply.
The Westell 6100 Router address is 192.168.1.47
sevencardstud.dynaccess.com has address 192.168.1.1

I'm computer literate so any information or directions that someone gave me to solve this problem, I would be able to follow.
Any help that someone can give me, especially if there is a procedure that can be followed to lead to a solution, would be greatly appreciated.
To anyone concerned,
I just want to give you the final results of my solving of this problem.
Ultimately, I had to make the following changes in /etc/network/interfaces I had to change from using dhcp to use static and then using information that I had gotten from the command "ifconfig eth0" I added the following parameters to /etc/network/interfaces
auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.47 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.1.1 network 192.168.1.0 broadcast 255.255.255.255 dns-nameservers 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11
I don't know what changed on my system that would cause me to have to make these changes.
I think maybe something on my Network connection, which is with QWest, may have changed but I will never know for sure.
Any way, this is what I had to do to solve this problem.
I hope this information is of some use to someone here.
Thank you for who ever may have looked at this problem.
