eth0 not found, internet connection 50% of the boots
Ok briefly, here's my problem: My intenet works spradically, every time I log-in there's 50% chance that my connection won't indentify. On the start-up, if you expand boot detail is gives following line during network set-up part: "Bringing up interface eth0... [takes long time]...inteface eth0 not found, PING IP#, blah-blah, [FAILED]. And a the login screen I get "localhost.localdomain" for a host, that emans that when I start mozilla during session, no URL can be opened. And if I get "Bringing up eth0 [OK]", then I get bgp01093911.waren.mi.comcast.net, then internet works. Any ideas as to what is the cause of problem and how it can be fixed.
I use Fedora Core 2 RedHat LInux, nash version 3.5.22, cable modem connected to port for USB in the back, seems like no ethernet card inside, only smallmetal connector to omtherboard.
I've already made sure that all the plugs are securely plugged and tight. I think it's a problem with a driver and I already tried to look for it, but nothing on manufacturer's website. During installation linux installed generic driver. My cable modem model is : Terrayon tj 715.
If you need to know something other than just momem make, please leave a post here and how to look this info up.
ANY help is appreciated grealy.
