Network fails fo work in Mandrake 10.0; annoying reboot required
Annoying network problem in MDK10.0 ( post #1)
I just installed MDK10.0, which is working perfectly except for one annoying issue. Whenever I boot my computer into Linux each morning, the network daemon starts up fine, but whenever I try to use the network nothing happens. Ping gives "host unreachable" and I can't mount my windows shares from another computer. Strangely, if I boot into Windows and then reboot into Linux, the network will work fine! Also, I have only had this problem with Mandrake. I have used other distros such as Red Hat and MEPIS and they have never had any problems with networking. It is very annoying to have to boot into Linux, reboot into Windows, and then back to Linux, just to get the network working. Has anyone experienced a similar problem?
Ethernet card: Intel 82559 Ethernet Pro 100
Computer: IBM PC 300PL, PIII 650MHz.
Thanks for the help!
