Hello LQ, this is my problem.
I have a network in my house, using a Linksys BEFSR81, with 3 computers. One is a webserver (running linux of course
(redhat9)), The second is running Windows, And the last one (the cause of the problem) is running Red Hat Linux 9... (My personal computer)
When I turn on my personal computer (with redhat 9 on it), my router disconnects from the PPPoE server and trys to connect to our ISP again...after a while it gives up and I end up unplugging it and plugging it back in...(I do not have a static IP, which adds up more down-time).
I narrowed down the problem to my redhat computer and I have tried changing the network configuration....but I can't seem to get it to work... I have tried: Setting eth0 to be a static LAN IP, checked "Automatically get DNS via DCHP", and "Bind to MAC address", and different combinations....and nothing seems work....does have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
