Have you disabled the included network configuration application in PadOrbiter?
No, The network configuration app came up and I hit cancel, then went to the terminal to setup the network. Is that all?
Have you 'restarted networking at boot' as is recommended in the 2nd post of the ubuntu thread you referenced?
Do you have a core up and running with an Access Point on lmce's internal network?
Have you set the PadOrbiter for DHCP (on the core's internal network)?
Yes, restarted, The webdt connects up, picks up an IP address 192.168.80.100 which is in the range for non-pluto stuff (mine is 100 to 150)
Ping the core and I get a response.
I'll try a reinstall later if I get the chance next week.
