I have an ADSL connection and for the last two months (since I installed Etch) it was working fine. If I reboot to windows it works fine, when I came back it doesn't work, so I guess it is a software problem in Etch. I have another computer on the same connection running Etch and it also works fineOn Wed, Jul 11, 2007 at 01:07:19AM +0200, Mitja Podreka wrote:In the last few days I cannot connect to network with my laptop anymore.

No working leases in persistent database - sleeping.Can the laptop connect on any other network? Is it the cable? Do you have a connect light on the NIC or on whatever the other end of the cable goes to?
I know the IP of DHCP server and I cannot ping anything:Do you know the network topography or the IP of the dhcp server? Can you ping it from your laptop? Can you ping anything from your laptop?
connect: Network is unreachable
If other computer and OS works I guess it is not the problem of DHCP server.It could be a problem with the dhcp server and not with your laptop. Do you also control the dhcp server? What do its logs show. Do they show a request from your laptop?
