I have a curious problem with my network connection. I know that my ADSL
connection is instable. This I am working on separately (an ISP
problem). However, if I happen to restart Linux while the connection is
down, after restarting the connection never gets reset, even after
(service network restart).
If I ping a local machine (the modem: 10.0.0.138) I get host
unreachable. I get this for every machine.
service network restart, returns OK, but does not establish a connection.
The only solution is to keep restarting until the machine happens to get
eth0 from startup.
From that time on till the next restart I have no network problems.
I am running FC5 on x86_64.
Does anyone have a clue how to investigate this one?
