DHCP won't grab IP for either NIC's.
I asked for help a few days ago and I didn't get any and I have been playing around with my network a lot since then and I have narrowed down a few things. I installed MDK 9.1 on another computer of mine and booted up, set eth0 to get the IP from DHCP, restarted the network, and I was able to use the internet. Feeling that maybe a frsh install would work for me, I did a fresh install on my laptop, which has two nics; one ethernet and one wireless. When I booted up and tried to assign the ethernet nic an IP through Road Runner's DHCP server, nothing happened, instead when I ran ifconfig, I discovered that eth0:9 had been assigned an IP. The same thing happened with my wireless nic, eth1; eth1:9 was assigned an IP address. The two computers share a cable connection through a regular HUB. Why is it that my one MDK 9.1 computer can obtain an IP on the correct device and my other one can't on either of its devices?
