Slow internet, eth0 not detected in Ethereal etc..
Ok, things are moving along slowly but surely.
Apparently, DHCP works as I can in fact reach the net through my company's LAN. The problem is, regardless of browser, it has a long "warmup time" where firefox/konqueror will say "resolving host" or something like that, for a good 5 or 6 seconds. After that, the T3 seems to kick in and the page loads instantly. Dual-Booting into Windows on the same LAN and using firefox .8, there's no delay, so I'm sure its a Linux issue.
Also, I cannot get Ethereal to reconize my eth0. When I try to select an adapter, there are none listed. Could this be part of the issue? Likewise, I cannot start Nessus on localhost, as it tells me it cannot reach the port (which should not be blocked). Could these be related?
Should there be a specific DHCP or other package I should install? It seems to reconize my Realtek Gigabit LAN adapter during boot.
This "lag" won't do for network scanning! Thanks for your help again!
