Ok I recently installed etch and eveything was working fine for the past 3 days. Yesterday I rebooted the computer to do some work in windows. When I started debian again my internet connection wasn't found. So, I figured out that my eth0 connection was disable. I went to kde control center
1. Internet & Network
3 Enable etho
Everything was working fine again. Today after rebooting from windows I seem to have the same problem. I tried doing what I did yesterday but that did not work. When I try to enable eth0 it switches back thus not allowing me to change the setting. I decided to restart the computer agaian and during bootup I saw that some things where failing in startup. I think it said /etc/network/???? I didnt catch this last part. After trying to reset the eth0 once again and having no luck I restart the computer so I could come to the forum. During the shutdown process their were also errors/fail processes which I belive is "up-down"(this could be wrong). I recall seeing something similar in the /etc/network/??? directory. I dont know what is wrong with it. Everything else seems to work fine. I have to use Window to connect to the internet now. Oh I am not on a network.
ok I dont know if I should but I dont think eth1 is doing anything but I know I need eth0 oh.when Im in kde control center I try to change eth1 but kde crashes. It is set to manual I dont know if it should be this way. I dont know netmask, network and broadcast address.
