Shutdown Mandrake 2005 and loose network connection??
I've just downloaded mandriva's free version of le 2005 to try linux, after using windows for many years, so complete noob.
The problem I have is when using the halt, shutdown or crtl,atl,del commands to shut down, I loose connection to my wired network. It's as if it turns off the ethernet connector (marvell 88E8001) on the motherboard (Asus AV8).
The only way to regain connection is to reboot back into linux. If I boot into windows, the network adaptor stays off, so no internet connection.
I can the connection light on my router going off and coming back on as I shutdown and reboot linux.
Is there something I'm doing wrong, or is there something to configure.
Thanks for your help
