So for a while i've wanted to set up my own server. I started off playing with an old computer that came preloaded with win 97 that the family didn't bother throwing out coz it still worked. Thing is the moment i installed ubuntu server on the machine, it seemed unable to see the network. I have spend hours trying to figure it out until finally giving up and deciding that i could just buy newer hardware and it would likely work better. Now i've bought a raspberry pi, enabled ssh and thought i'd just get networking set up and i can remote into it from then on. I see that there is no ip address on eth0 so i use ifup eth0 and it failes to find a dhcp responce. i had tried to edit the /etc/network/interfaces file but it didn't seem to help. So i have once again given up. I know i havn't really provided much detail on what specifically i've tried but It all looks pretty straight forward to me, i've plugged in the cable, have a router with a dhcp pool, shouldn't this stuff just work?
I've realised now that i can't get my trusty laptop to configure eth0 either so it might be my lack of education. Do you guys have any ideas?
