Hi list, I have the following problems after updating from 126.96.36.199 to 5.3-BETA7
I have extemely poor and intermittent network connectivity with my ethernet card (em0). My wireless atheros card (ath0) works perfectly. I have kde installed. With em0: I can ping; I can't telnet; sometimes I can send and receive mail (I mean very intermittently I can send a test message in about 12-24 hours). In terms of net access, I can access the web but extremely slowly with frequent timeouts, freebsd utilities are subject to the same issues, such as portupgrade; links; and cvsup, so I don't tend to think this is a kde problem. I have no DHCP entries in my rc.conf. Interestingly with both em0 and eth0, when executing dhclient I receive the following error message: dhclient: send_packet: Network is unreachable. However, with ath0 this is clearly a lie, as the network works perfectly. I have tested the ethernet card (em0) in my dual boot windows install, it works fine, so it doesn't seem to be a hardware problem. My other box on the network is also fine. Any ideas would be most gratefully received, I'm totally clueless on this. many thanks .nbco _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
