I have a set of network issues that may be related on my Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca Cinnamon.
This is an updated version of another post in which I reported issues with my Apache as well, but those are resolved now. Also, for some reason, the waiting for network configuration-message is gone, albeit for no apparent reason.
1. The network indicator is always greyed out, and tells me that my wired connection is unmanaged. How do I change that?
2. My router setup does show my Mint being connected, but is unable to produce the host name, which it does do for my RaspBerry running Jessie Lite. How do I correct this?
3. I set up my Mint to have a static IP address, with my /etc/network/interfaces looking like this:
Code: Select all
# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
iface lo inet loopback
# iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth0 inet static
# broadcast 192.168.0.255
dns-nameservers 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206
Did I do that right?
When I run sudo ifconfig, it reports errors:
Code: Select all
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr f4:4d:30:15:6e:ae

I hope anyone understands what is ailing here!
Also, I would like to know which log files I need to check out to see what happened within my network.
