Pls share the scripts
This may not work the same in VL7, but you'll get the idea. Run as root:
ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 up
Bingo! Start VASM, Select SUPER, Network, Name, and then provide a hostname and then provide the IP address to your router. Things should start working at that point.
That is a good approach. However, it may end up fighting wicd. You can try using manual settings in wicd;
left-click the wicd icon on the panel.
Click the "Properties" button for the wired network.
Check the box for "Static IP".
Enter the IP address for your VL machine (192.168.1.xxx or similar, you gotta figure that out).
When you continue, it will suggest the next values:
Netmask "255.255.255.0" and the IP address of your router (possibly 192.168.1.1).
The next required item is "DNS 1", you can use the free Google server "184.108.40.206".
Click the "Connect" button for the interface.
