I'm using Mandrake 10.0 on a laptop, which I use on several networks.
Last week I connected it to my adsl connection at home (eircom, ethernet
connection to the router) and that seems to have overridden my settings
on other networks that use dhcp.
When using a static address (at work), I can connect no problem. When
using dhcp (at college), however, my "Internet Connection" configuration
(in Mandrake Control Centre) reads as an adsl connection, and removing
the adsl with the "Remove Connection" function seems to have no effect
whatsoever (there's still an adsl configuration in "Manage Connections"
and any internet connections end up being adsl). The laptop has an
ethernet card and a wireless card, and neither seem to be able to
connect properly. Neither can get an IP address though they are both
working (the lights are blinking away on the wireless card suggesting
that *something's* going on, though identical settings have everything
working properly in Windows; and the ethernet works fine on the static
Does anyone know how to get rid of the adsl connection manually? Or
might this be a more general problem with my dhcp settings?
Any help is much appreciated.
