This seems to be a bug with NetworkManager 0.7, but anyway. Having set configuration from DHCP to manual I enter my IP address, Netmask and Gateway address:
192.168.1.47 - My Computer
192.168.1.1 - Router
255.255.255.0 - Gateway
These settings worked on Elyssa, using an older version of Network Manager. I may have mixed something up but after reboot, I can't connect to anything and the Netmask field in configuration has changed to a number such as 24. I look in ifconfig and My IP addr is fine, but Bcast and Mask are screwed. Any help? Should I roll back a version of Network Manager or is there a solution to this?
I posted in Software and Applications because this is a software problem more than a network problem. Currently on DHCP, so can connect.
Linux Mint 8 RC1 = Nice
'apt install' can be used on Linux Mint as a shortcut for 'sudo apt-get install'. 'apt x' can be used for various other apt commands as well.
