Network Setup, Please Help.

Hello there,

Decided to install Arch once again, but I'm totally stuck with network setup.  I've tried many different combinations in the config files, but nothing at all seems to work.  I know the device is working (with Windows), and my details are correct.  Perhaps I've misplaced something.

On issuing a network restart, I receive a message saying "SIOCADDRT: No such device".  A similar message is issued when the network stops.  I can only ping my own IP, not even the router's.

Could anyone lend a hand?  I'm pulling my hair out here!

Thanks.

Device: eth0
My IP: 192.168.1.64
Router IP: 192.168.1.1

grep | eth0

eth0: RTL8168b/8111b at 0xf881c000, 00:1d:7d:95:65:e9, IRQ 16

route -n This was different at some points, but I've played around with so many options that it's hard to keep track.

See if you can get it working with dhcp

OK... let's do this.
Your configurations seems correct, so to start troubleshooting we first ping your router with ping 192.168.1.1 do you get an answer? If you do good if  you do not then as root issue this command: mii-tool to find out what is your Nic card doing and let's go from there.

Do you see your card with ifconfig?

Thanks for the replies, but I managed to get it working after grabbing the r8168 driver from Realtek's site.  I was using r8169 and assumed that it would work.
