Home Forums Getting Started Trouble getting Wan DHCP IP number. Reply To: Trouble getting Wan DHCP IP number.


I’m following this faq: http://wiki.espressobin.net/tiki-index.php?page=Quick+User+Guide

And having the same issues as this gentleman:

# ifconfig eth0 up
# dhclient wan
[ 162.790397] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wan: link is not ready
[ 164.323110] dsa dsa@0 wan: Link is Down
[ 165.331782] dsa dsa@0 wan: Link is Up – 100Mbps/Full – flow control rx/tx
[ 165.338761] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wan: link becomes ready

(I presume they meant “enter” and not “insert”.)

I tried that …
Note that the online doc never mentions what happens next. Do I wait a second, or a few minutes?

In my case, several minutes later, I’m still waiting.

I just saw some output that implies dhclient (or someone) did a “PING” after a few minutes,
albeit unsuccessfully, to

I just got “rm: cannot remove ‘/etc/resolv.conf.dhclient’: No such file or directory
I also just got “cat: /etc/resolv.conf.*: No such file or directory”
followed by

[…] dsa dsa@0 wan: Link is Down

Can anyone already setup or from Marvell help?
