Another popular way to connect to the Internet is via a LAN that uses Ethernet. This gives you a high-speed local network in addition to Internet access. Fortunately, though, you should have already configured Ethernet networking during installation so there isn't much you need to do now. If you ever need to modify your configuration, here are the files that you will be interested in:

  • /etc/init.d/network has things such as your IP address, netmask, and default route.
  • /etc/hostname records your hostname.
  • /etc/hosts also records your hostname and IP address.
