Hi List,

I had been using dynamic 512kbps ADSL internet access with FC acting as a gateway and router in the office for sometime now. As traffic had increased over the pass years, the management decided to sign up with a static 2mbps ADSL connection.

On this FC router, eth0 is set to DHCP and eth1 is configured with an IP

Can I use back the existing configuration?

Well, the only thing you'll need to do is once that you've received your static IP address assignment, reconfigure eth0 with the static IP address, instead of DHCP. You can do this either by running system-config-network, or by hand-editing /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0. Change "BOOTPROTO=dhcp" to "BOOTPROTO=none", and add "IPADDR=aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd", "NETMASK=aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd" and "GATEWAY=aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd". Then, ifdown eth0, followed by ifup eth0, to reconfigure the port.
