Thumbs up Network drop out


Hi,
I have just installed MDK10.1 downloaded version on my computer and it starts up perfectly except after about 15 to 30 seconds it dis-connects from the internet..I have to re-connect and then it is fine until the next reboot then same thing all over again..
I have a cable router set up with an ethernet card..I use DHCP for connection and like I mentioned it connects but drops off...
Any hints as what to do or where to look? I have tried to re-configure my network but same thing.. Please keep it light as I am not an expert however,I also am not a complete novice..
Thank You for any tips or suggestions...

set ur card to static IP and specify the gateway as that of ur ISP
and edit the /etc/resolv.conf file also and add the DNS ip as well

Thank You for your post

Hi again Masand...Thank you for your post ..
I tried twice after setting it to "static" but it still goes down about 30 seconds after the initial boot..
Once after it goes down,I can either reconfigure or re-connect to eth0 and it stays put as long as it is left on..
Funny thing though I remember MDK9.2 never had a problem even with the very same network and my SuSe 9.0
stays on but it had to be set to static as DHCP would not work on it..
I reinstalled MDK10.1 on another hard drive and it stays on the internet in DHCP but I had a host of other problems So I un-installed it..This hard drive MDK works perfectly all except this problem..
I did notice that this shows both eth0 and eth1 ? The eth0 is the network card I use(tulip module) but the other is a mystery..
I wonder if that has anything to do with it?
Thanks again,
jolphil
Edit the second is the IEEE1394...

one thing u can do is
edit the
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 ,eth1
file to specify STATIC ip adress

also try disabling the hotplug option in mandrake and also kill ifplugd by

ifplugd -k

regards
