Hi,

I've had Debian running fine on 2 computers for a while now, but suddenly neither of them can access Google DNS or the LAN. It is working fine on my Windows 8.1 laptop, but not on the servers. I have tried to reinstall but it has not fixed anything. I'm on Orcon using the Orcon Geinus (Netcomm NF4V). 

Why could this be happening?

If you have any ideas please leave them beloww.

Thanks

Other than that you still have internet access from those machines?

No, I can't ping my router or anything.

If you cannot ping an ip address then it is not a DNS issue.

Are you using static IP addresses or DHCP?

Do what gstarkey said and do an ifconfig and see if the what changed between your static IP setup and DHCP setup.

Any chance you upgraded the version of Debian you're running?

 

Possible driver issue?

Nothing changed on a ifconfig between static and DHCP, trying to find an equivilent ipconfig /all on Debian.

Your not doing something like setting the static ip address within the routers DHCP range?

What happens when you ping the address you where using for the static ip address?

Nope, not doing that. When I ping the static IP address it just says "Destination Hosst Unreachable"

This really implies that your router does not like those particular static ip addresses anymore for some reason.

What are the the static ip's you are using, and what are the DHCP IP's allocated to the same machines?

Using 192.168.1.200 for my static IP. Currently the second computer is not plugged in but ususally is on 192.168.1.201. I have disabled the 192.168.1.200-192.168.1.253 zone in DHCP on my router for any static IPs. The server is currently on 192.168.1.10
