So, I set up my server using " The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Gusty Gibbon 7.10 ". When setting up I had a wireless PCI adapter installed as eth1. But to change from the unreliability of the wireless, I removed the wireless PCI adapter card. I connected my ethernet card to the router using a crossover cable. I attempted to run Code: apt-get update which attempts to connect to the internet but fails. It also failed when the wireless PCI adapter was installed. ifconfig output looks like this: Code: [email protected] /etc/network/interfaces looks like Code: [email protected] Anybody having a solution to get the internet working? My next question is how do I set up my server to automatically start if it loses power because of a power outage. The only way I've found to do this is using WAKE ON LAN. I followed this page: http://n01getsout.com/blog/2006/11/16/wake-on-lan-on-linux-with-a-linksys-wrt54g/ I attempted to wake my computer up using the web based utility. It didn't work. I do have my router forwarding port 9 via UDP to 192.168.1.112 which should work. Anyone know a better solution to this problem or how to set up WOL? Thanks!
