dhcpd, comcast.net, GNU/Linux, timeout
Trying to get online with a laptop & linux using the dhcp client dhcpd.
I've verified I have a good connection, via the able modem & hub. I'm able to swap out cables and ports with my windows machine and have a good connection. So...good cables, good ports. Activity light on the laptop nic flickers intermittently so I assume that is good also.
Here's what I have tried:
ifconfig eth0 up (eth0 shows up them, minus an ip address)
dhcpcd -d eth0 up
dhcpcd returns back the MAC address and then just sits there, timing out...according to the syslog.
I haven't really done any other configuring or anything, just a basic and recent install of ZenWalk GNU/Linux.
Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
