only temporare networkconnections
Posted on 2001-09-14
I'm using SuSE linux 7.1 professional.
I've got the following problem:
My networkadapter (3com 3c509combo PnP) isn't working properly.
normaly it should work with my dhcp (embedded in an netgear router) but it doesn't.
so I entered a fixed IPaddress.
I can't ping anything up to 20minutes after my system is fully booted up.
the I can ping my dhcp(router) and other workstations and also surf the internet.
but the internet connection is slow like hell and the net-applet in windowmaker shows that the connection is like one peak some time nothing then the next peak.
I'm connected to the internet by ADSL. my other workstation is working quite fine with the same linux. there's no difference in the rc.config files except the IPaddress. the other workstation uses a 3c905TX.
what do I have to do to get my network and internet running fine?
