I have a problem to connect the Raspberry Pi to the Internet.
ping 126.96.36.199 does not work, but the Pi can be accessed using SSH with my laptop on the same network.
My laptop and the Pi use ethernet and are plugged directly into the router (Freebox). For my laptop,
ping 188.8.131.52 works.
Some set up from the Pi:
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 allow-hotplug eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 184.108.40.206 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 220.127.116.11
Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 0.0.0.0 18.104.22.168 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 eth0 22.214.171.124 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
I noticed that my laptop had a third route:
169.254.0.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.0.0 U 1000 0 0 eth0
Thus I added this route to the Pi but it didn't change anything.
I wondered whether the MAC address of the Pi (
b8:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx) was accepted by the router because I also tried DHCP and in the logs I had no IP returned by
dhclient: DHCPOFFER from 126.96.36.199
Thus, maybe I should check the router configuration but I need a password to connect to it and I don't have it. Another solution may be to connect the Pi to my laptop, but I have only one ethernet port. I could also use WiFi but I have no idea of SSID + password.
Why can I not get connectivity from the Ethernet side?
