I just installed 7.0 STABLE on a brand new Dell SC1435 (dual AMD 64bit dual
core processors), and I'm experiencing a very weird problem. If I try to
do anything with the network, I lose connectivy.
For example, if I run /etc/rc.d/netif restart, when the interface comes
back up, it says the media has no connection. If I reboot the box, it
If I try to bring up an alias interface on the same NIC the network goes
away and the box has to be rebooted.
Did something change on 7.0? Or have I got some sort of bug?
