I did that and the only thing that changes is that the error message
points to 108 instead of 8. I also associated the mac address with
192.168.1.108 in the router but that didn't make the difference either.
Something very unusual going on. Ive done this set up many times without
I see that there is also an /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-lo in
box 108 that does not appear in this working box9 [192.168.1.9?
Now my grandson tells me his internet connection didn't work so he tried
pressing the reset button on his Wireless Ethernet Bridge!! It's an old
one I got on E-bay and now I have to google the instructions for how to
to access from Firefox it, a Linksys WET11-v2. I didn't need that.
