Hello... this is my first post but have enjoyed using Vector Standard Edition for some time. Thank you for this excellent distro.. in fact, it has become my distro of choice.
Recently, I installed Vector 5.9 Standard for a friend and all is great except the Internet. Once configured, the Internet goes down after a few hours of inactivity and has to be reconfigured. She has BellSouth DSL and a Westell modem (don't know the modem model offhand, but it does have a router built-in).
Anyway, when the net goes down, in order for it to work again, I have to delete the etc/dhcp folder and then reconfigure the Etehrnet card via DHCP in VASM. She has been patient up till now but she is new to Linux and if this continues I would not want her to revert back to Windows 98!
Any advice? Thank you in advance for your help!
p.s. One last thing... we are using OpenDNS via the modem's internal DNS setting.
