FC3 Networking Problems


I'm having real problems with networking on FC3.
My NIC is a Myson Surecom EP320SX going through a Belkin router. I get the error "No link. Check cables?" whenever the network tries to connect.
The only workaround to this is by doing:

su root
Password: *******
/sbin/ifconfig eth0 192.168.2.3
/sbin/route add default gw 192.168.2.1

This then brings up the network.
Is there a way of putting all this in a startup script so that whenever a use logs on it brings up the network? I've tried the network config dialogs but nothing works except for the above steps...

Thanks.

I don't have that file/folder.
No networking is set up at all, it needs to be set up manually cos it thinks there's no cable until I do the steps I said above.

seasidebaz,

A quick work around is to put the commands into /etc/rc.d/rc.local This should now work once you have re-started.

You must be Logged in as root to edit the rc script. Since the script runs as root, you will not need to put the lines:

su root
pass.....

just enter in your ifconfig and route lines and you should be good.
