Static IP Ethernet Problems in Mandrake 8.x
Posted on 2002-05-19
Hi, my computer has been setup with both windows 2000 and mandrake 8.1. Before I was using both with dhcp ethernet and it was working just fine. But I moved to an apartment where I have a static ip address. I was able to get the windows networking working with the new ip info. I was given. But the linux networking doens't seem to be working on static ip. :-(
I thought it might be a problem with Mandrake 8.1, so I formatted the linux partition and installed Mandrake 8.2. And I entered the static ip info when I went through the setup. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I entered the exact same ip, dns, gateway, and netmask into the windows networking configuration, and it works just fine.
Can someone please help me out?
