    Cannot manually assign DHCP information


    I'm trying to setup eth0 with a static IP address so the router knows what computer is the DMZ host and never has problems with mis-matched IPs.

    The connection works file when I set it to automatically configure DHCP. What I want to do is manually choose 192.168.1.110 as my IP and keep it like that. Here is what I enter in system-config-network:

    Code:
    IP Address: 192.168.1.110
    Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
    That IP isn't in use. Whenever I change it manually, I save the changes, deactivate the device and reactivate it. After that, I don't have any connection whatsoever until I go back to automatic.

    Why is this?

    This belongs in the networking section. Sorry.
