My desktop doesn't seem to be connecting to the network until I login. This creates a problem if I'm trying to ssh in after a reboot. It's a wired connection. Any ideas?

I hate to bump but does anyone think that the bast idea is to just make a bash script or is there a setting somewhere?

My guess is you are using Network Manager to configure the interfaces. This means the interface is not up (configured) until you login. I understand that you can configure the interface available to all users, but I have never done that.

I configure the interfaces via the /etc/network/interfaces file. I have no Network Manager installed on any Ubuntu host.

I checked the available to all users thing and it works now thank you
