Re: reaching the outside

I only have two more suggestions:
1. In the ideal case you have partitioned your hard drive and you have
windows or some other OS installed so you try setting up your internet
connection through that.

2. In the less than ideal case you can eliminate a possibility (i.e. the
problem is your physical connection, not your setup).  You can do this by
connecting another box that has windows or some other OS to that same
ethernet connection.

Hope this helps,
