Re: lost dhcp on boot up

Just FYI, that broadcast junk is typical of what's seen when plugged into a Cisco switch... it's probably NOT from his machine, but from the switch above it in the network architecture.

The error messages are dmesg(8), ip(8)/ifconfig(8), tcpdump(8).

I tried executing dhclient; it just returns a prompt.  This is what
tcpdump collects from eth0 when I execute dhclient

Great!  Now we know there is no DHCP traffic going out your box.  Only
some 802.1d bridge stuff. Bingo.

The configs look fine.

I'll be glad to to try other suggestions.

Go through the thread, and apply the suggestions already made :-)

% ifconfig a
% ip l
% ip a
% ip r

And: what was the dhclient's commandline?  (Read: Was it correct?)  And
tcpdump's.  Post _with_ invocations. So again:

# dhclient -d eth0
# tcpdump -i eth0
