Re: Is DHCP installed by default in ver. 12.04 LTS?
Your device is eth0, not eth1. Using manual methods usually is quite iffy with Network Manager installed and running. Before you remove it altogether, I'd try using it. Remove the erroneous settings in /etc/network/interfaces and edit connections in Network Manager to use Link Local as attached. I'm fairly confident that's what LL refers to here:
Alternatively add the following lines to your interfaces file ('ipv4ll
' is a relatively new option, easier than using 'static'):
iface eth1 inet ipv4ll
