First of all, my eth0 is a 3com905b connected to a cable modem provided by time warner who is leasing ip addresses from winnt sms site for one hour per host...
How do you renew eth0's ip address?
#ifconfig eth0 down(release?)
#ifconfig eth0 up(renew?)this not seem to affect eth0 interface at all.
I'm just looking for the equivalent to winnt command: ipconfig/renew, which usually accomplishes this task.
Is there a simple way of renewing eth0's ip add?
If not can that device be reinitialized while the system
Any info on this is greatly appreciated...
