Has anybody experienced this? I boot my machine up and DHCP doesn't work like it should. I can go in and edit "Auto eth0", "IPv4 Settings" and (even though it's already enabled) I will put the method to "Automatic (DHCP)" and then click apply. Then I'll see the icon in the notification area that it is acquiring an IP address. Why won't it do this automatically? It's driving me crazy!

Thanks

Does it actually get an address? I had this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1156441) problem with rfc3442.
