hi i am using ubuntu 10.04 in lenovo thinkcenter embedded machine(ie,mac style pc). i need to use two network connections my local office lan and airtel lease line so i attached another external Ethernet to usb converter and configured it it worked fine. i was able to switch between two network via network manager , my problem is when i switch on machine for first time he secondary ethernet network ie,airtel connection was not found in network manager rather i found auto eth1.
when i restart the machine i could get both the networks in network manager. every time i have to restart my computer to get both networks work can any body help?
