    Linux networking help


    I have Mandriva Linux 2008.1 installed on a laptop HDD. I've installed this HDD onto a desktop and it books up properly, but always fails to find eth0 during booup. eth6 however doesn't fail.

    When I've logged in, sometimes the network manages to get connected, but most of the time it doesn't. I've tried setting the watched connection to eth6 and then connect to it, as well as using the network setup wizard. However, it doesn't work.

    How can I fix my faulty network?

    how many NICs do you have?

    and try this:

    dmesg | grep eth6

    I have just the onboard NIC.

    I get the following:
    udev: renamed network interface eth0 to eth6
    r8169: eth6: link up
    eth6: no IPv6 routers present
