eth0 hangs on startup
I am running Redhat 8.0. I connect to the internet through a hub connected to a separate router via a cable modem.
When the system startsup, the system stalls on "Bringing up Eth0".
To remedy the situation, I go to another computer on my network , connect to the router, and reboot it. The system starts normally afer that.
This is a pain in the butt, and all network traffic to other computers on the network is reset because of this.
I am sure that there is some initialization or startup file that needs to be reconfigured, but I am still learning Linux and I have no idea where to look.
can anyone help me?
