Re: no network connection

I have Debian 4.0 on a machine now for 2 days.
Thanks to this list, my screen resolution problem is
resolved. Next (and hopefully last) problem is that
each time I boot the system I have to manually enable
my network connection. When Gnome starts up, I see in
the top of the screen a small ethernet cable icon with
a big NOT sign (red circle with a slash
through it) over top of it. I right-click on that and
a pull-down menu allows me to enable my wired network.
Then everything is fine.
How can I fix this so that the network just comes up automatically?
Couldn't find anything on this in the archives or in the GUI.
You should have a files /etc/network/interfaces
which should have something like:
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
try it with and without the auto eth0. I am assuming the eth0 is your
wired network: it may be eth1, or eth3 for you. I am also assuming you
are using dhcp.
man interfaces will give you more information.
