|How is the netcardconfig button from the dsl panel intended to work in 3.4.x?|
The reason I ask is that on my old desktop I am obliged to use netcardconfig a couple of times a day to reconnect it to the router - I don't know why it disconnects. When I bring up netcardconfig, I click on the dhcp radio button, click on apply and click on exit - somewhere in this a question is asked about saving settings to which I presume I have effectively answered yes, but the next time I use netcardconfig I have to click on the dhcp button again.
Obviously having to click on one radio button is not a big deal, but shouldn't the choice be saved or I have I misunderstood?
Note that this is with dsl-3.4.8 but I presume it is the same as dsl-3.4.9
I misspoke with my previous post. I was looking at a 4.x system.
On 3.4.9 it works as intended. I just now setup a 3.4.9 system and boot nodhcp, ran netcardconfig from dslpanel. This scripts creates a script with your chosen selection in /opt/eth0 (or whatever the device name is), it adds this script to /home/filetool.lst and also adds it to /opt/bootlocal.sh. This should provide persistence across reboots. The script as written does not recall/reload previously entered data.
Trying to maintain two different distributions causes much extra work to constantly be setting up and taking down test environments. Only one person here and little equipment and space available.
Were you expecting pre-entered data to display or were you possibly using it as other than user dsl?
