I recently installed Debian on a laptop using a live CD. Now with the same NIC and ethernet connection, I can't get a DHCP offer. I'm running Windows machines off the same cable modem no problem.
I've looked at many FAQs, HOWTOs and forums but cannot seem to resolve this issue. ifconfig reveals eth0, which appears to be functioning normally (it's plugged in).
Using ifdown eth0 and then ifup eth0, I get a series of DHCPDISCOVERs but no DHCPOFFERs. Resetting the cable modem and restarting the computer does not resolve this issue. All the while, my Windows machines work fine.
I suspect it's not a hardware issue since I used the same NIC and ethernet connection to install Debian in the first place. I'd be more than grateful for any advice on how to troubleshoot this issue and can provide the syslog entries if that would help.
