I am fairly new to Linux and have setup 13.04 on a media server that is to be kept in a closet. I found that every time the box boots I have to restart networking to get connectivity, which makes it unusable.
I have setup br1 with a static IP address and em1 pulls an address from the DHCP. From another post's recommendation I just had networking restart when the box was booting, but this caused em1 to disappear completely. What direction should I be looking to fix this?
