Hello,

Nothing urgent - take your time.
As long as I have a working internet via LAN, it is okay.

I was just trying to learn more about servers so I thought to use the LAN
cable to connect to my other laptop and use the Wireless here :)

Don't worry about this issue, I thought it's a release related but it seems
not.
I will do my digging too ;)

Thanks a lot!
