I feel like an idiot. I removed NetworkManager by mistake (bam! palm to forehead). Now I feel even dumber because I can't get my network connection working again (smack! palm to back of head).
Please excuse the excess information, I'm not sure what is pertinent and what is not.
My network looks like this:
Linksys router with DHCP enabled -> Linksys switch -> several F10 boxes
I am using DHCP Reservation on the router for all machines to have static ip address, except the one in question, I removed that reservation while trying to get my connection back.
I am not running a DNS server.
After a great deal of "googling" and many attempts to get the ifcfg-eth0 configured correctly on my desktop (i.e. not using wireless) I am at a loss. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
I have been making all of my changes to the file:
Are there other places I need to make modifications? Here is what the file currently looks like:
GATEWAY=192.168.2.200 (the ip address of my router)
I appreciate any suggestions you may have.
