Hi all,
 There is an issue in ubuntu 8.10 beta version as far as
network-manager is concerned. One of the many issues plaguing it atm
is that after every reboot or boot the preferences or variables are
blanked out .


Now for self, have done a temporary workaround which works but I'm
sure this could be improved upon.


This is for ethernet wired connection to an ADSL router

a. sudo ifconfig eth0 inet netmask broadcast

b. ping -c5

c. sudo route add default gw

So I get something like this :-

Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface     *        U     0      0        0 eth0
default         UG    0      0        0 eth0

I did a ping for the route man page says one should see that the
gateway is reachable.

After this things are happening coolly . Notice I'm not using any
NetworkManager stuff or anything.

The only thing issue atleast IMHO is that the preferences remain open
only for the session. Each session I have to do that :(

Comments, suggestions, additions to the above are welcome.
