My system usually fails to connect to broadband when it boots.

I'm on Ubuntu 9.10 but I had the problem previously (Jaunty).

It can take 5 or 6 attempts.

If the connection doesn't succeed immediately then "requesting a wired network address" is shown before it all fails.

My isp is Tiscali but two other xp systems on the same lan always connect first time

Can anyone help?
