Tell us a little about your setup, are you using DSL that requires pppoe? Is your setup MODEM > COMPUTER is this dialup? Some info is needed.

yes my connection is DSL, i enter the username ad password thats it. Even if i have my modem switched off while DHCPDISCOVER is running, it says something like no eth0 connection found, it still takes its time with soomething like this on startup ....

DHCPDISCOVER on eth1 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 7
DHCPDISCOVER on eth1 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 19
DHCPDISCOVER on eth1 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 20
DHCPDISCOVER on eth1 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 14
No DHCPOFFERS received.

the net still works. when i switch the modem on.

It takes a lot of time, like 30 se3cs and pisses me off
