 Subject:  RE: [m0n0wall] No Link-up Detected

I was installing (smirk, like booting from CD is an 'install' - I love 
it!).. installing a first time m0n0 tonight and also came up against this 
problem of it saying the link is not detected, despite it clearly being 
plugged in.
Does 'no link up detected' mean the card thinks it's not plugged in? surely 
it doesnt relate to the subnet being in a different range? (because mine was 
at the time - default m0n0 = 192.168.. and PC set to 172.16..)
I'm not sure what I did, which likely means its just m0n0 being a bit buggy, 
but after trying auto the usual 'few times', i went to manually assign and 
noticed "link up" (or whatever the wording is) indicated next to the card I 
was about to assign as LAN... so evidently it decided to see it in this 
manual context.

However all works like a charm now. Sweeeet, another smoothwall convert to 
rack up to m0n0wall's credit. In fact i suspect if i was to stick the CD and 
floppy in the smoothwall box and boot I could have both m0n0 or smooth on 
demand simply by booting with  or without the CD/floppy.

Now... where's the pretty traffic graph images?
