[Discuss] network issue

[dhcp problems]

How about typing:

  ifconfig eth0

  sudo ethtool eth0
  (or perhaps "sudo mii-tool eth0")

  ethtool -i eth0

  ps -elf | grep dhcp

  sudo tcpdump -v -i eth0 \
      'arp or icmp or udp port 67 or udp port 68' \
      >/tmp/capture.txt &

  ifdown eth0

  ifup eth0


  ps -elf | grep dhcp

  ls -l /etc/resolv.conf

  cat /etc/resolv.conf

  sudo ping -b
    (press control-c after ~5 seconds...)



  cat /tmp/capture.txt
