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 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast
b. ping -c5 192.168.1.1
c. sudo route add default gw 192.168.1.1
So I get something like this :-
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.1.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth0
default 192.168.1.1 0.0.0.0 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.
