NetworkManager 0.8 auto configuration not working
 
Hello,

I just installed Linux for the first time and I'm having some internet connection issues. I am running Linux Mint 9 on my HP 210 netbook. I am unable to connect to anything using NetworkManager 0.8's automatic configuration. I can't even ping my other computer. Both computers are connected to my cable modem by a switch. The other computer (the one I'm on right now) is running Windows Vista and is working fine.

eth0 is getting an IPv6 address assigned to it, but no IPv4 address. When I do dhclient (I'll include it at the bottom) it says no DHCPOFFERS received and then makes another adapter called eth0:avahi with an IP of 169.254.9.78, which I think I understand from what I read is just a default.

I noticed when I looked at the ipconfig results from my Windows computer that there were a number of things called tunnels on there. My ISP is cox, and I saw some other people with cox had the same setup. One of the tunnels seems to make it so IPv4 and 6 can coexist. Could that be a problem? When I asked Cox why it was set up that way they helpfully referred me to wikipedia.

So, those are my newbish flailings in the dark. Hopefully my little story was somewhat helpful. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Here are my ipconfig (from windows), ifconfig, and dhclient results. Let me know if I can provide any other information.

"Both computers are connected to my cable modem by a switch."

If you don't use a NAT router, only one computer will be requisitioned for a cable modem. You could have one computer connected to the modem and the second configured for NAT to share the connection. But connecting two devices when the modem only issues one IP address won't work.
