service network restart

thats the command i have to run everytime i need to get to the internet (that is after i reboot). for some reason, my Mandrake 9.1 does not do what my former Mandrake 9.0 use to do and that's automatically connect to the Internet for me. Ever since I got 9.1 on there my eth0 would always come up [Failed] during boot up. However someone did point out that if i changed my hotplug under mandrake control center to off then i would no longer have that [Failed] message.

ok, that worked! I no longer get the [Failed] message on my eth0, however I still have to manually enter the command to initially connect to the internet.

so i thought what if i put that somewhere during boot up, say my /ect/rc.d/rc.modules file:

# (c) MandrakeSoft, Chmouel Boudjnah <>
# $Id: rc.modules,v 2000/07/30 05:07:38 chmouel Exp $
# description: launch modules specified in /etc/modules inspired by a
# Debian idea.

[ -f /etc/modules ] || exit 0

# Loop over every line in /etc/modules.
(cat /etc/modules; echo) | while read module args
case "$module" in
\#*|"") continue ;;
initlog -s "Loading module: $module"
modprobe $module $args >/dev/null 2>&1

service network restart

but that doesn't seem to work either....

ok ok, enough going around the problem, does anyone know what i'm going thru....

I'm running Mandrake 9.1 on a Dell Inspiron 7500 using a Xircom CE (PCMIA) card to get at the LinkSys router (network, internet) and it used to work fine under Mandrake 9.0.

Thanks a bunch

Try seting it up as a cron job that runs at start up

nice idea, only i had that disabled on account that there is a cron job there that goes about my /home/downloads directory shutting off access to it.... and i'm wondering if cron my be a bad idea to have running in general...

however, it's a nice idea
