DHCP Issues (on loss of power)
Imagine this: So just when you think the whole world is at your feet, you've finally got your box up and running hunky dorey, the sun is shining, the sky is blue, the birds are singing and there are pretty girls in short summer dresses everywhere, then ... WHAM ... your box loses its power as someone has tripped on the power cable.
Now when you boot the box everything seems fine, apart from its no longer leasing an IP from your router.
I've tried rebooting the router, and rebooting the box several times and still not got it working again, when the cable is connected, the power light is on steady on the NIC and the orange transfer light is flashing perminantly very quickly. I've even tried running 'dhcpcd eth0' and it just sits there for an enternity.
This has happened to me several times over the last couple of days, the box has lost power and upon reboot it'll no longer lease an address from a DHCP.
Any ideas what might be causing this?
