Script to detect common network problems
There exists a bash script on collectNWData Überblick / Overview | collectNWData.sh which analyzes a Linux box for common wired and wireless network configuration problems and gives hints how to solve the problem. If it's still not possible to fix the problem the script collects a lof of network configuration information in a file which can be posted on a nopaste web site and helps everybody familiar in Linux networking to fix the networking problem very quickly.
It's used right now by the German Linux community (more than 9000 downloads already) and I'm sure it's also helpful in this community (web pages written in English and German) - fix a network problem on your own and to provide networking info for folks who can help you to fix problems.

I'll have to check this out when I get home. I can create my own networking issues for testing.

Just got the output from Lazydog for CentOS (Thx Lazydog) and now installed Centos, Kubuntu and Fedora in a VMWare image to fix the script issues with distros other than OpenSuSE. My major problem right now is to identify the main Linux distros used by Linux beginners. Are there other distros used than OpenSuSE, kubuntu, Centos and Fedora? I can't fully enable and test the script for all Linux distros. Just let me know of other distros usually used by Linux beginners."Really, I'm not out to destroy Microsoft.

There is a beta version of the script available which supports a lot of other Linux distros than openenSuSE. Just go to http://www.linux-tips-and-tricks.de/...ctNWData_62.sh and test it. If you detect runtime errors or you are missing information for your distro - just send me the output file and which info you're missing.

FYI: I just uploaded a new major version of the script here. It now supports openSuSE, Debian, Knoppix, Kubuntu, Mint, Mandriva, CentOS, Fedora and Slackware. Other RH, Debain, Arch and Slackware based Linux distros should also be OK.
