Lost networking

Lost networking

Post by Ken » Sun, 03 Nov 2002 06:07:11

I can't figure out what happened on this laptop I'm running Debian 3.0
with kernel 2.4.19 on.  All of a sudden I have no networking anymore.
Can't connect to anything.  It's configured for my work network with a
static IP.  WinXP can connect no problem.  From what I can see,
everything looks fine.  /etc/hosts has my IP.  /etc/resolv.conf has my
DNS servers.  The only place I see my netmask and gateway IPs is in
/etc/network/interface.  ifup and ifdown seem to work properly, at
least from the -v messages.  I am totally confused.  Any suggestions
on where else to look?

Forget it.  Turned out that it's a hardware issue with the NIC.  WinXP
was using the 802.11b connection.



1. Losing network connection in Mandrake 8.0

I would appreciate any information on a problem with Mandrake 8.0. All is
working well except I keep losing my network connection. When I restart the
network with /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart it starts working again and
may last a few minutes, or 15-30 minutes then stops again. I checked mail
to root and found this repeating (many, many times) message:

Message 11:

Detailed text (if any) follows:

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
