Problem affecting connection -Reboot needed


Anyone had a similar problem?

I have a connection problem with the internet and local network. Either they both connect or they both do not.

It sometimes connects straight away , sometimes on the second boot , sometimes the third or fourth time I boot my computer. Never any more

My setup is, A linux machine and a windows machine on a separate network card (eth1) and the Linux machine is the gateway that connects to the main server through Eth0

Anyone got any sugestions please? I've fiddled inside Guarddog quite a bit to try and fix.this Nothing seems to affect the results and it is variable between connect first time or if not reboot up to 3 times more. Its not a consistent number or increment that I can recognise anyway.

To find out if it is Guarddog, just shut it down for a few trial runs, and see if everything works. do this in turn with every application in the direct line, and one you find out what is causing the problem, we can work on finding a more direct solution.

Did the above but unsuccessful
I noticed in the kernal log that errors were reported as follows
Its a lengthy file so Ive taken out what did not seem inportant.
Note the errors at the end seem to be continuing to be reported and this is with the network properly connected

Lines 7 and 8 concern me . I know the AC97 driver isn't loaded as mu board is one with built in sound and the disk for installation of the driver is only in windows .exe format The sound however works fine anyway and there are no other sound cards installed

Can anyone help with explanations?

Still wasting 5,10 or 15 minutes with this each time I boot .
I have reinstalled about 3 times to no avail.
Guarddog on or off no diff and closing each application I could did not stop either
I installed Ubuntu 6.10 on another drive and it loads perfectly each time I start it
Got me beat

Well OK Iĺl close this now I suppose
Nobody else seems to have the same problem and nobody has an answer

I found that on reinstall number 4 that if I restarted the network from the Mepis tweaks it would often connect properly so it is a connection problem related to my machine and my distro

Smile Re: Problem affecting connection -Reboot needed

Using Ethernet (ADSL or PPPoE), to connect to the internet is relatively easy with Mepis, because when the distribution, begins to run, it tries to detect all the network interfaces in the computer.

So after the whole boot process has finished and you have passed the login screen (where you have entered the apropiate password), you will be looking at your desktop.

To finish setting up your internet connection, you must click: Kmenu > Internet > Connection > ADSL/PPPoE configuration, and follow the different screens, where you will be asked for some ISP information (like your username and password). Complete that section and a few seconds later, you will be surfing the Internet.

Here is a link to networking basics. Taken from the MEPIS wiki. http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php/Networking

Here is some stuff you can type into knosole.

ifconfig - main configuration utility for network interfaces. Please read man ifconfig for full documentation.

ifup interface - bring up the specified interface. For example:
ifup eth0 - command that brings up the ethernet port
ifup wlan0 - command that brings up the wireless port

ifdown interface - the opposite of 'ifup' it brings down the interface.

iwconfig - wireless network connection utility. Check out man iwconfig for full documentation. Here are a few useful iwconfig commands (NOTE: your wireless card could be referred to by one of several names on your system. eth0, ath0, and wlan0 are common. Wherever you see one of those, substitute your adapter's name):
iwconfig - by itself, iwconfig will display your wireless status
iwconfig eth0 essid any - this command connects eth0 to any AP in range
iwconfig wlan0 essid foo - connects wlan0 to AP with essid "foo"
iwconfig eth0 key off - clears out the WEP key
iwconfig ath0 key 12345678901 - sets ath0's WEP key to 12345678901


iwlist - another wireless ethernet utility. See man iwlist for complete information. Some useful commands:
iwlist wlan0 scanning - shows properties of all wireless networks within range of wlan0.
iwlist ath0 bitrate - shows the current speed of communications on ath0.
Hopefully this will get you on the right track.

I should have asked you on my first post which version of MEPIS are you using? Let me know which version and maybe I can help a bit more.
