Can you please explain it more clearly and in detail? I use a Netgear DG632
modem/router with BSNL Dataone. The router is configured to connect
automatically using my userID / password, and it assigns IP address
dynamically to my desktop. Therefore, the network connection does not need
to have any configuration details. Do I need to specify the DNS manually
for my default connection on eth0?
I had also tried disabling SELinux completely, but that didn't help. Please
explain what you meant in your first two lines above.
Thanks in advance.
