    i am using the UBUNTU 8.10 in my college network

    here i have installed two systems with the same...
    the systems are under in our local college network and under a firewall(FORTIGATE)

    we are using the a broadband connection for the internet use......and the college lan is used the same broadband connection.......

    the problem is , when i restart the ubuntu system the network settings will be changed every time
    every time i need to set tthe ip addresses manually for getting the network access

    from this academic year we decided to use the ubuntu in our Network Resource Center (NRC) there are more than 15 computers are there..

    I actually meant inside the network. I for example have configured my server to have 192.168.0.10, and I haven't done that in the router.

    Again, do you have DHCP or static? (inside your network).

    Thank u for the help

    in our local network i have configured the server ip as 192.168.0.1 but I haven't done that in the router.....

    this types of ip problem is not happening in xp or win 2000
    systems in my network...

    are you booting into gnome desktop environment? If so, I would forgo the network manager and set the ip from command line.

    i am booting from GNOME desktop


    before setting the ip
    ie
    i have restart the ubuntu system , it seems network is not conncted

    ifconfig
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:13:20:60:71:c5
    inet6 addr: fe80::213:20ff:fe60:71c5/64 Scope:Link

    gateway 192.168.0.1

    dns 218.248.240.79 and 218.248.240.135


    ifconfig
