Linux Networking Guru's:
I am having some trouble attaching to the wireless networking at my
school. My machine is set up to pick up an address using dhcp,
however, it only seems to look for addresses in the 192.x.x.x
network.(The school leases out 169.x.x.x addresses I believe). Does
anyone know what could be going wrong. At home it normally works
fine, however from time to time I find that my network has leased an
address in the 192.168.2.x network although my wireless network runs
under 192.168.0.x. I suspect that I am getting an address from
another wireless access point in my building.
The /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth1 file confirms that
This is the result of running the /etc/ifup eth1.
Determining IP information for eth1 .... PING 192.168.0.1 .....
---- 192.168.0.1 ping statistics ----
3 packets transmitted, 0 received, + 3 errors, 100% packet loss
---- 192.168.2.1 ping statistics -----
same as above.
The problem only seems to manifest itself at school. Does anyone have
a clue how to fix this problem.
