Im new to Linux
I have Slackware 12
After leaving my computer unattended for a while,I get the following message:
Kernel : Disabled IRQ #17
I also lose my internet connection. It seems my connection to my router gets disconnected.
I use DHCP to connect to the router.
I try to reconnect via
ifconfig eth1 down
ifconfig eth1 up
However, I am not able to reconnect. I end up rebooting my box inorder to reconnect.
1. What is IRQ #17??
2. How do I reconnect to the internet without having to reboot?
