    Timeout for eth0


    Hi everyone! I just have one (hopefully simple) question to ask. I'm running Mandrake 10.1 and would like to know where I could change the timeout for eth0 during bootup? I got my wireless card to work, so I'm not really using the wired ethernet all that much. Thanks in advance for the help.

    One way is to add DHCP_TIMEOUT into your file
    /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
    Code:
    DHCP_CLIENT=dhclient
    DHCP_TIMEOUT=11         <---- Add this line
    In my example above you will have a timeout of 11 sec

    Otherwise, if you wish, you are able to change this setting from within Mandrake Control Center, in you network configuration you will find a setting for the DHCP timeout value.
