Linksys Etherfast Adapter
SMC Barricade Router
1meg VDSL internet service
Internet works fine ! I repeat internet works fine !
I have configured the adapter for static IP and ran all options available to see if something was missed. I have tried every option under Make New Connection .
When I boot it says
bringing up interface eth0 (FAILED)
this is the only failed device on boot and it does not follow with any other messages.
when the system is connected to the router it says failed but the internet works just fine ! it also displays (Local Host) as the host
when I have it connected to the WAN directly it shows
bringing up interface eth0 (OK) and displays the (VDSL-xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) as the host.
So how do I get my boot sequence to detect the connection and show up properly in the Mandrake Control Center.
Here is exactly what it says in the Mandrake Control Center
1. Internet Access
Status=Not connected but it is connected
DNS 1=127.0.0.1 this is my loopback
DNS 2=192.168.2.1 this is my gateway
