networking info

i have a laptop with fedora on it, looking for some networking help.

more specifically, when i have the laptop out and about with no internet connection it takes forever to boot up. waiting on the eth0 connection. any way around this?

You could disable your ethernet device at boot and start it up when your computer is running.

To disable at boot go to:


find your ethernet device file, open it up and change on ONBOOT=yes to ONBOOT=no.

mine is /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0

so i do:

nano /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0
and change the onboot field.

There is probably another way around this... anyone else have any other ideas?
