Re: Only wireless, no eth0



Okay, I might give that a try!  I'll wait for a wee while to see if
anyone else knows the solution, as it's not too much bother
(connection is still pretty fast), just very strange that it's
defaulted to wlan0.

By the way, should I submit a bug-report for this?  Thanks for your help.
