    Yes, but we will need to know what distribution you are using to give you specific instructions.

    Check for a /etc/network/interfaces file.

    My one looks like this

    Code:
    chris@angua:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    address 127.0.0.1
    netmask 255.0.0.0
    
    auto eth1
    iface eth1 inet dhcp
    The last two lines are the ones you are interested in. You will have to change eth1 to whatever your interface is called, but that should do it. If that file doesn't exist or there are other problems post them here and we'll see what we can do.

    Let us know how you get on,
