ifconfig -a reports a ne2 and a lo0 interface.
netstat -rn shows routes with nothing (obviously a problem, but why?)
I checked ifconfig.ne2, resolv.conf, mygate files a few times.
Still even the ne2 interface doesn't work, it doesn't explain why
localhost doesn't work. I thought I corrupted some file in /etc
but there was no reported problem with disks.
I am thinking of reinstalling the sets, but will that help?
