    so i am installing ubuntu and it's trying to configure the network, it says "Network configuration has failed" your network is probably not using the dhcp protocol. Alternatively, the DHCP server may be slow or some network hardware is not working properly.

    so it seems like ubuntu config cant detect my network, yet my router sees the ubuntu ethernet address and assigns a dynamic ip to it, how can this be?

    i installed it anyway, i am trying to connect to internet, still not working, i have even tried another ethernet card

    when i try to ping my router i get "connect: network is unreachable"

    and when i do sudo dhclient eth0, i think it tries searching and then says no dhcpoffers
    no working leases in persisten database-sleeping

    i am looking in my /etc/network/interfaces


    it says
    Code:
    iface eth0 inet static
    network 192.168.0.0
    broadcast 192.168.0.255
    dns-nameservers 192.168.0.1
    address 192.168.0.100
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    gateway 192.168.0.1
    
    this is after i tried setting up static ip in ubuntu and my router

    i have no idea where the 192.168.0.0 and 192.168.0.255 came from

    what should i put for network and broadcast?
