This article is for people trying to get their Linux PC connect to internet or just the local network. Most linux distributions come with automatic DHCP clients and thus need minimal tinkering with configuration. But if you are in a situation where having a simple DHCP client is not working, read on. In this part I’ll write about bare basics only.
First run ifconfig command in console window to check your ip configuration. ifconfg is linux counterpart of Windows ipconfig command. Most likely, the output will look like this:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:e0:1c:40:07:cf
inet addr:192.168.1.117 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::2e0:1cff:fe40:7cf/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:90395 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:68143 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:58988739 (58.9 MB) TX bytes:11107421 (11.1 MB)
Interrupt:22 Base address:0x3000
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1
RX packets:377 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:377 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:41747 (41.7 KB) TX bytes:41747 (41.7 KB)
Here eth0 identifies your LAN interface. If you have more than one, it’s shown as eth1, eth2 and so on. Wirelss interfaces are shown as wlan0, wlan1 and so on.
lo is you default local interface which will always have ip 127.0.0.1
In this case, you can see that eth0 is correctly configured with ip 192.168.1.117 and netmask 255.255.255.0
If you are sure that your network has a DHCP server and want to use only that, run the following command:
Unless you had specified a permanent IP address, the interface on which DHCP client is running will get you an ip like this.
For cases where you don’t have a DHCP server to provide you IP configuration automatically or you just want some other address, say 192.168.1.11 on eth0, type the following command
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.11 netmask 255.255.255.0
This command will assign ip address 192.168.1.11 with netmask 255.255.255.0 to your default network interface eth0. If you want to assign this ip to another ethernet interface, replace eth0 by that interface’s identifier. For example if you want to assign this ip to your 2nd network card, type:
ifconfig eth1 192.168.1.11 netmask 255.255.255.0
Now, that you’ve assigned an ip, it’s time to provide gateway too. If your gateway address in 192.168.1.1, type the following command.
route add default gw 192.168.1.1
By now, you should be able to connect to your local network. But in order to browse internet, you still need DNS. In Linux, a file named resolv.conf stored in /etc/ contains address of your DNS server. To manually add DNS entries, open resolv.conf in any text editor and add your DNS ip in separate lines. For example:
Don’t forget to add nameserver before each DNS ip. Save the file and start browsing.
Following above steps will enable you to connect to the network for current session. But what if you need to save the settings permanently ? For this you’ll need to edit a file named interfaces. It’s path is /etc/network/interfaces and it’s contents look like this:
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth1 inet dhcp
#iface eth2 inet dhcp
#iface ath0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
Here, auto eth0 , iface eth0 inet dhcp part shows that DHCP is enabled on eth0 interface.
iface eth1 inet static
This part is for eth1 and displays it’s static ip address, netmask and gateway in different lines. If you want any of your interfaces to have a static permanent address, modify entry for that interface just like this with address of your choice. In this case, I have 2 network cards and one wireless lan. eth0 and wlan get their ip from DHCP while eth1 has a static ip. You can either delete entries of interfaces that you don’t have or just put a # before them to disable them.
Also you can disable a network interface by using command
ifconfig eth0 down
To enable it again type:
ifconfig eth0 up
That’s most of it that’s usually needed in a normal computer. Thanks for reading

Dear Rahul Gandi
Please don’t be ashamed of Uttar Pradesh yet. Congress ruled the State for the Majority of the duration Pre Independence to Post Independence from 1939 to 1989 (barring the Periods of Emergency.. Thanks to your Grand Mom Indira. and a couple of transitional Governments).
THE CURIOUS CASE OF RAHUL GANDHI
Rahul Gandhi: “I feel ashamed to call myself an INDIAN after seeing what has happened here in UP”.
PLEASE DON’T BE ASHAMED OF U.P. YET
Please don’t be ashamed of Uttar Pradesh yet. Congress ruled the State for the Majority of the duration Pre Independence to Post Independence.. from 1939 to 1989 ( barring the Periods of Emergency.. Thanks to your Grand Mom Indira G. and a couple of transitional Governments)
8 out of the total 14 Prime Ministers of India have been from UP, 6 out of those 8 have been from Congress…
I think your party had more than half a century and half a Dozen PM’s to build a State…
The Reason Mulayam Singh, subsequently came to Power is because your party wasn’t exactly Gandhian in their dealings in the State.. So May be If you look at in totality the present chaos in UP is the outcome of the glorious leadership displayed by Congress in UP for about 50 years!
So Please don’t feel ashamed as yet Dear Rahul.. For Mayawati is only using the Land Acquisition Bill which your party had itself used to LOOT the Farmers many times in the Past!
WHY DIDN’T YOUR PARTY CHANGE THE BILL WHEN IT WAS IN POWER FOR SO LONG?
Not that I Endorse what Mayawati is doing.. What Mayawati is doing is Unacceptable..
But the past actions of your party and your recent comments, puts a question mark on your INTENT and CONSISTENCY.
YOU REALLY WANT TO FEEL ASHAMED
But don’t be disappointed, I would give you ample reasons to feel ashamed…
You really want to feel Ashamed..?
First Ask Pranav Mukherjee, Why isn’t he giving the details of the account holders in the Swiss Banks.
Ask your Mother, Who is impeding the Investigation against Hasan Ali?
Ask her, Who got 60% Kickbacks in the 2G Scam ?
Kalamdi is accused of a few hundred Crores, Who Pocketed the Rest in the Common Wealth Games?
Ask Praful Patel what he did to the Indian Airlines?
Why did Air India let go of the Profitable Routes ?
Why should the Tax Payer pay for the Air India losses, when you intend to eventually DIVEST IT ANYWAY!!!
Also, You People can’t run an Airline Properly. How can we expect you to run the Nation?
Ask Manmohan Singh. Why/What kept him quiet for so long?
Are Kalmadi and A Raja are Scapegoats to save Big Names like Harshad Mehta was in the 1992 Stock Market Scandal ?
Who let the BHOPAL GAS TRAGEDY Accused go Scot Free? ( 20,000 People died in that Tragedy)
Who ordered the State Sponsored Massacre of SIKHS in 84?
Please read more about, How Indira Gandhi pushed the Nation Under Emergency in 76-77, after the HC declared her election to Lok Sabha Void and cancel..!(I bet She had utmost respect for DEMOCRACY and JUDICIARY and FREE PRESS)
I guess you know the answers already. So My question is, Why the Double Standards in Judging Mayawati and members of your Family and Party?
I condemn Mayawati. But Is She the only one you feel Ashamed for?
What about the ones close to you? For their contribution to the Nation’s Misery is beyond comparison.
You talk about the Land being taken away from the Farmers. How many Suicides have happened under your Parties Rule in Vidarbha ? Does that Not Ashame You ?
THE 72,000 CRORE LOAN WAIVER
Your Party gave those Farmers a 72,000 Crore Loan Waiver. Which didn’t even reach the Farmers by the way.
So, Why don’t you focus on implementing the policies which your govt. has undertaken, instead of earning brownie points by trying to manufacture consent by bombarding us with pictures of having food with Poor Villagers….
You want to feel ashamed. You can feel ashamed for your Party taking CREDIT for DEBITING the Public Money (72,000 crores) from the Government Coffers and literally Wasting it...
You want to feel ashamed.. Feel ashamed for that…
WHY ONLY HIGHLIGHT THIS ARREST?
Dear Rahul, to refresh your memory, you were arrested & detained for 9 hrs by the FBI at the BOSTON Airport in September 2001.You were carrying with you $ 1,60,000 in Cash. You couldn’t explain why you were carrying so much Cash.
Incidentally, you were with your Columbian girl friend Veronique Cartelli, ALLEGEDLY, the Daughter of Drug Mafia.
9 HOURS, you were kept at the Airport.
Later then freed on the intervention of the then Prime Minister Mr.Vajpayee.. FBI filed an equivalent of an FIR in US and released you.
When FBI was asked to divulge the information, by Right / Freedom to Information Activists about the reasons Rahul was arrested … FBI asked for a NO OBJECTION CERTIFICATE from Rahul Gandhi.
So, Subramaniyam Swami wrote a Letter to Rahul Gandhi, ” If you have NOTHING to HIDE, Give us the Permission”
YOU NEVER REPLIED!
Why did that arrest not make Headlines Rahul? You could have gone to the Media and told, “I am ashamed to call myself an INDIAN?”.
Or is it that, you only do like to highlight Symbolic Arrests (like in UP) and not Actual Arrests ( In BOSTON)
In any case, you want to feel ashamed,
YOUR MOTHER’S SO CALLED SACRIFICE OF GIVING UP PRIME MINISTER SHIP in 2004.
According to a Provision in the Citizenship Act.
A Foreign National who becomes a Citizen of India, is bounded by the same restrictions, which an Indian would face, If he/she were to become a Citizen of Italy.
(Condition based on principle of reciprocity)
[READ ANNEXURE- 1&2]
Now Since you can’t become a PM in Italy, Unless you are born there.
Likewise an Italian Citizen can’t become Indian PM, unless He/She is not born here!
Dr. SUBRAMANIYAM SWAMI (The Man who Exposed the 2G Scam) sent a letter to the PRESIDENT OF INDIA bringing the same to his Notice. [READ LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT IN ANNEXURE -3]
PRESIDENT OF INDIA sent a letter to Sonia Gandhi to this effect, 3:30 PM, May 17th, 2004.
Swearing Ceremony was scheduled for 5 PM the same Day.
Manmohan Singh was brought in the Picture at the last moment to Save Face!!
Rest of the SACRIFICE DRAMA which she choreographed was an EYE WASH!!!
Infact Sonia Gandhi had sent, 340 letters, each signed by different MP to the PRESIDENT KALAM, supporting her candidacy for PM.
One of those letters read, I Sonia Gandhi, elected Member from Rai Bareli, hereby propose Sonia Gandhi as Prime Minister.
So SHE was Pretty INTERESTED! Until She came to know the Facts!
So She didn’t make any Sacrifice, It so happens that SONIA GANDHI couldn’t have become the PM of INDIA that time.
You could be Ashamed about that Dear Rahul!! One Credential Sonia G had, Even that was a HOAX!
THINK ABOUT YOURSELF.
You go to Harvard on Donation Quota. ( Hindujas Gave HARVARD 11 million dollars the same year, when Rajiv Gandhi was in Power)
Then you are expelled in 3 Months/ You Dropped out in 3 Months
…. ( Sadly Manmohan Singh wasn’t the Dean of Harvard that time, else you might have had a chance… Too Bad, there is only one Manmohan Singh!)
Some Accounts say, You had to Drop out because of Rajiv Gandhi’s Assassination.
May be, But Then Why did you go about lying about being Masters in Economics from Harvard .. before finally taking it off your Resume upon questioning by Dr. SUBRAMANIYAM SWAMI (The Gentlemen who exposed the 2G Scam)
At St. Stephens.. You Fail the Hindi Exam.
And you are representing the Biggest Hindi Speaking State of the Country?
SONIA GANDHI’s EDUCATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS
Sonia G gave a sworn affidavit as a Candidate that She Studied English at University of Cambridge
[SEE ANNEXURE-6, 7_37a]
According to Cambridge University, there is no such Student EVER! [ SEE ANNEXURE -7_39]
Upon a Case by Dr. Subramaniyam Swami filed against her,
She subsequently dropped the CAMBRIDGE CREDENTIAL from her Affidavit.
Sonia Gandhi didn’t even pass High School. She is just 5th class Pass!
In this sense, She shares a common Educational Background with her 2G Partner in Crime, Karunanidhi.
You Fake your Educational Degree, Your Mother Fakes her Educational Degree.
And then you go out saying, “We want Educated Youth into Politics!”
Letters sent by Dr. Swami to EC and then Speaker of Lok Sabha are in ANNEXURE 7_36 &7_35 RESPECTIVELY
Contrast that with Gandhi Ji , who went to South Africa, Became a Barrister, on Merit, Left all that to work for South Africa, then for the Country….
WHY LIE ABOUT EDUCATIONAL CREDENTIALS?
Not that Education is a Prerequisite for being a great Leader, but then you shouldn’t have lied about your qualifications!
You could feel a little ashamed about Lying about your Educational Qualifications. You had your reasons I know, Because in India, WE RESPECT EDUCATION!
But who cares about Education, When you are a Youth Icon!!
You traveled in the Local Train for the first time at the Age of 38.
You went to some Villages as a part of Election Campaign.
And You won a Youth Icon!! … That’s why You are my Youth Icon.
For 25 million People travel by Train Everyday. You are the First Person to win a Youth Icon for boarding a Train.
Thousands of Postmen go to remotest of Villages. None of them have yet gotten a Youth Icon.
You were neither YOUNG Nor ICONIC!
Still You became a Youth Icon beating Iconic and Younger Contenders like RAHUL DRAVID.
Shakespeare said, What’s in a Name?
Little did he knew, It’s all in the Name, Especially the Surname!
Speaking of Surname, Sir
DO YOU REALLY RESPECT GANDHI, OR IS IT JUST TO CASH IN ON THE GOODWILL OF MAHATMA?
Because the Name on your Passport is RAUL VINCI.
Not RAHUL GANDHI..
May be if you wrote your Surname as Gandhi, you would have experienced, what Gandhi feels like, LITERALLY ( Pun Intended)
You People don’t seem to use Gandhi much, except when you are fighting Elections. ( There it makes complete sense).
Imagine fighting elections by the Name Raul Vinci…
It feels sadly Ironic, Gandhi Ji, who inspired Icons like Nelson Mandela ,Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lennon, across the world, Couldn’t inspire members of his party/ Nehru’s Family, who only seem to use his Surname for the purposes of FIGHTING ELECTIONS and conveniently use a different name on their PASSPORT.
You use the name GANDHI at will and then say, ” Mujhe yeh YUVRAJ shabd Insulting lagta hai! Kyonki aaj Hindustan mein Democracy hai, aur is shabd ka koi matlab nahin hai!
YUVRAJ, Itna hi Insulting lagta hai, to lad lo RAUL VINCI ke Naam se!!! Jin Kisano ke saath photo khinchate ho woh bhi isliye entertain karte hain ki GANDHI ho.. RAUL VINCI bol ke Jao… Ghar mein nahin ghusaenge!!!
You could feel ashamed for your Double Standards.
YOUTH INTO POLITICS.
Now, you want Youth to Join Politics.
I say First you Join Politics.
Because you haven’t Joined Politics. You have joined a Family Business.
First you Join Politics. Win an Election fighting as RAUL VINCI and Not Rahul Gandhi, then come and ask the youth and the Educated Brass for more involvement in Politics.
Also till then, Please don’t give me examples of Sachin Pilot and Milind Deora and Naveen Jindal as youth, who have joined Politics..
They are not Politicians. They just happen to be Politicians.
Much Like Abhishek Bachchan and other Star Sons are not Actors. They just happen to be Actors (For Obvious Reasons)
So, We would appreciate if you stop requesting the Youth to Join Politics till you establish your credentials…
WHY WE CAN’T JOIN POLITICS!
Rahul Baba, Please understand, Your Father had a lot of money in your Family account ( in Swiss Bank) when he died.
Ordinary Youth has to WORK FOR A LIVING.
YOUR FAMILY just needs to NETWORK FOR A LIVING
If our Father had left thousands of crores with us, we might consider doing the same..
But we have to Work. Not just for ourselves. But also for you. So that we can pay 30% of our Income to the Govt. which can then be channelized to the Swiss Banks and your Personal Accounts under some Pseudo Names.
So Rahul, Please don’t mind If the Youth doesn’t Join Politics. We are doing our best to fund your Election Campaigns and your Chopper Trips to the Villages.
Somebody has to earn the Money that Politicians Feed On.
NO WONDER YOU ARE NOT GANDHI’S. YOU ARE SO CALLED GANDHI’S!!
Air India, KG Gas Division, 2G, CWG, SWISS BANK Account Details… Hasan Ali, KGB., FBI Arrest..
You want to feel ashamed..
Feel Ashamed for what the First Family of Politics has been reduced to…
A Money Laundering Enterprise.
NO WONDER YOU ARE NOT GANDHI’S BY BLOOD. GANDHI is an adopted Name. For Indira didn’t marry Mahatma Gandhi’s Son.
For even if you had one GENE OF GANDHI JI in your DNA. YOU WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN PLAGUED BY SUCH ‘POVERTY OF AMBITION’ ( Ambition of only EARNING MONEY)
You really want to feel Ashamed.
Feel Ashamed for what you ‘ SO CALLED GANDHI’S’ have done to MAHATMA’S Legacy..
I so wish GANDHI JI had Copyrighted his Name!
Meanwhile, I would request Sonia Gandhi to change her name to $ONIA GANDHI, and you could replace the ‘R’ in RAHUL/RAUL by the New Rupee Symbol!!!
RAUL VINCI : I am ashamed to call myself an Indian.
Even we are ashamed to call you so!
P.S: Popular Media is either bought or blackmailed, controlled to Manufacture Consent!
My Guess is Social Media is still a Democratic Platform. (Now they are trying to put legislations to censor that too!!)
