internet doesn't connect on startup

Asked by snares

(Minor problem) When I first startup my computer (Ubuntu Hardy) it don't connect to the internet. I have to go into the network manager and select dhcp and then it connect. It doesn't unselect dhcp it just doesn't connect when I first startup. As if it doesn't get the command to connect until I specifically tell it to. Little bit of a nuisance but nothing I can't hand. You can look at some of those other internet related problems first. They seem more importent.

I have just loaded Ubuntu 7.10 and have similar problem.

I am using a BT voyager 210 adsl router with ethernet connection to the computer.

I haven't fully confirmed all the symptoms yet but ......... it appears that if I first run Ubuntu 7.10 off the cd trial version the internet ( firefox etc) runs ok and I can then boot the ubuntu 7.10 from my hard disk and it runs ok.

However, if I boot ubuntu 7.0 straight off my hard disk then it will not run. I can then fiddle around with the network settings but reset them to the stored values ( ie values not changed )the internet then runs.

The impression I have ( to be confirmed) is that if I have got the internet working and I then switch off the computer ( whilst keeping power on the router), the internet still works when the computer is switched back on. However, I get the impression that it won't work if I switch off the power to the router at the same time. I emphasise that this paragraph needs to be confirmed - I suppose if it is correct then it might be to do with the time taken to power up the modem.

Did you ever get an answer to the problem ??

cheers John

No I don't think I ever fixed the problem on Ubuntu 7.10 . But once I upgraded to Ubuntu 8.04 problem went away.
