New Linux networking commands
ifconfig, route, mii-tool etc. are out of date
The new kids on the block are ip and ethtool.
ip link show #list interfaces
ethtool interface #list interface status
ip link set dev eth0 name home #rename eth0 to home
ip addr add 22.214.171.124/24 brd + dev eth0 #add ip and mask(255.255.255.0)
ip link set dev interface up #bring interface up (or down)
ip route add default via 126.96.36.199 #set default route to 188.8.131.52
