Unhappy defaults to p3p1


Hi guys I need help on configuring standalone redhat network. I have a test laptop and got redhat installed. The problem is that the network defaults to P3P1 and does not have eth0. When I ls on /etc/syconfig/network-scripts there's no ifcfg-eth0 just ifcfg-p3p1 which I'm not familiar of. I can ping over LAN but can not browse the internet using DHCP as my network config.

service network restart
Shutting down interface p3p1: Error Device 'p3p1' (/org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Devices/
1) disconnecting failed: This device is not active [Failed]

Shutting down loopback interface: [Failed]

as a test machine I reinstalled it twice but got the same result. Help please?

This is a new naming convention for network interfaces, and it is derived from:

Lan-On-Motherboard interfaces: em<port number> (ethernet-on-motherboard <1,2 ..>)

PCI add-in interfaces: p<slot number>p<port number>_<virtual function instance>

There is a way to revert back to ethX if you like: Dell has a whitepapaer on it here: http://linux.dell.com/files/whitepap...inux-v0.92.pdf

As for why you cannot browse the internet, you need to make sure the interface has a gateway.
