I'm trying to setup Qubes OS on my desktop but struggling to get the network/internet working.

This is the configuration i want to setup -

ip - 192.168.1.2
Subnet - 255.255.255.0
Gateway - 192.168.1.1
DNS - 8.8.8.8
interface - eth0

i tried following with limited success -

ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0  
route add default gw 192.168.1.1

also edited /etc/resolv.conf to added dns entry.

Now when i check ifconfig - I get my ip & netmask configured and when i check routes i get 2 routes displayed with 192.168.1.1 as default.

But i still cannot surf or even ping domains (eg. www.google.com).

Qubes has various security domains called AppVm's. So i guess we could/might need to setup a network config for each VM. Its all a little new to me (+ its documented sparsely) so any help appreciated!

Since the network setup of Qubes OS is one of its defining characteristics (I guess), I suppose this can't be answered by someone not knowing it in detail. How about consulting the mailing list if the wiki doesn't help? –  sr_ Apr 30 '12 at 9:15

The simplest way is to use NetworkManager system tray. Right-click on it, select edit connection, if the IPv4 tab, select manual and put your network settings in here.
