November 18th, 2008, 04:05 PM
Installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu 8.10 on Intel i386 32 bit dual core laptop. Ethernet adapter has been detected fine but each time I restart, I need to set up the network ip,dns server,netmask,gateway everything again for using the network. What can I do?? ..help me out please ... Also the system is taking too long time(more than 5 minutes)to shut down. :confused::confused::confused:

Network Manager had a problem with static (manual) configurations. I saw a thread suggesting it had been fixed, but I presume it'd require an update (which a fresh install might not have gotten - yet).

In the meantime, here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=974382) is a workaround that might help.

You've verified that machines are in same subnet (via ifconfig on Ubuntu - ipconfig/all on XP (dunno about Vista). FYI, here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=202605) is a good How-To on peer-to-peer networking with Windows.
