clean install from 7.04 to 7.10 DHCP not working
« on: May 24, 2008, 12:53:08 am »
hello, I have a Asus N2MPV-VM acting as a dedicated core. The external NIC is connected to my cable modem and the internal NIC connected to a Netgear DGS 2208 switch. This setup worked perfectly with MCE 7.04 but after I did a clean install to 7.10 by installing Kbuntu 7.10 AMD and then the 2 cd 7.10 MCE I cannot seem to get the internal NIC to work. The indicator lamp does not light on the internal NIC or on the switch and I just cannot figure out why this internal lan port is inactive under the 7.01 version. In the MCE launch Manager under the view IP Adresses it lists the following info:

External_Iface=eth1
External_mac=00:18:E7:16:F8:07
External_IP= 68:3:33:91
External_Netmask=255.255.240.0
External Dhcp=1
Internal_Iface=eth0
Internal_Mac=00:1B:FC:CB:88:88
Internal_Ip=192.168.80.1
Internal_netmask=255.255.255.0
Gateway=68.3.32.1
DNS1=68.105.28.11
DNS2=68.105.28.12

In the MCE browser under Network Settings Advanced tab I see this:

Advanced | Network settings
EXTERNAL_IFACE    eth1
EXTERNAL_MAC    00:18:E7:16:F8:07
EXTERNAL_IP    68.3.33.91
EXTERNAL_NETMASK    255.255.240.0
EXTERNAL_DHCP    1
INTERNAL_IFACE    eth0
INTERNAL_MAC    00:1B:FC:CB:88:88
INTERNAL_IP    192.168.80.1
INTERNAL_NETMASK    255.255.255.0
GATEWAY    68.3.32.1
DNS1    68.105.28.11

Your core has the following network adapters:

     Nameserver (DNS) #2:    ...
2. Internal network card eth0
     IP address:    ...
     Subnet mask:    ..

The launch manager log shows this:

This is the fifth Time that i have tried to install 7.01 with out success I even tried the 386 version with no luck, but MCE 704 works flawlessly. I hope that one of one of you MCE wizards can point me in the proper direction....

Thank you for your help

Re: clean install from 7.04 to 7.10 DHCP not working

Hi,

Did you change any cabling?

It looks to me it looks like you have your ethernet reversed.

eth0 should be your external connection.

eth1 should be your internal DHCP connection.

Hope this helps.
