what do you mean by stale DNS? how to tell
ping 188.8.131.52 fails...
56(84) bytes of data
from 192.168.2.8.....destination host unreachable
resolv.conf looks normal to me, been using it for a long time
generated by network manager
I don't have em1
not using wless on f16box
eth0 linkcap erhernet ,, HWaddr: ....
inet addr… 192.168.2.8 bcast 192.168.2.255 mask 255.255.255.0
the only new info:
the imac now is running internet access ethernet , prev was on airport wless''
so, as of now, the imac seems to have survived the switch to att-uverse
which suggests f16 should be able to do also
but I have no clue
f16box still no internet
att today gave a runaround:
one tech said their normal support cant help at all w linux,
but for a one time charge $49, they could get me to
a support specialist,
after much crap on telephone finally get to this specialist,
he said they can't deal with linux either.
He 'thinks' we can get our $49 back.
please excuse sloppy format,
very painful transcribing f16 responses to paper,
then going back to wife's office, manually typing in
