Last Wednesday night, for some reason, my link to my Mediaone (Chicago
area) cable modem went down. When I tried to get it back up, all
attempts with dhcpcd v.1.3 failed. I am running 2.2.2, and have run
dhcpcd v.1.3 since 2.2.2 came out and have had no problems. I went to
work and found out my friend was having the same problem, but Windows
would still work for him. He was running 2.2.1. Another friend had no
problem, he was runnign 2.0.36. So I decided to try booting into 2.0.36
and use the dhcpcd client that came with RedHat 5.2. It worked. Once
again I tried to use 2.2.2/v.1.3 and it failed. Mediaone must have done
something (upgraded their dhcp server?) to cause this.
I'm posting this in case other people run into this problem and
hopefully to find a fix.
