I hope this is the correct place to seek help about XenialDog.
I downloaded XenialDog 64bit and playing with it by running from USB stick (only from RAM, no frugal).

I am accustomed with xenialpup regarding wired & wireless network setup.
It works without any issue there.
In Dog, It detected eth0, I could access the net.
Then disconnected the wire, set-up wifi and connected.
Now when again I wish to return to eth0, there is no wizard or tool for eth (SNS rocks in puppy).
It tries to connect to eth but fails.

Am I missing something?

Booted to xenialdog.
eth0 was working ok automatically without any config.
For testing, I disconnected the hard wire and started 'wireless connection setup'.
Clicked on 'enable wireless'. It detected wifi networks available.
Selected my ssid, put-in pswd key and connected to wifi.

Then re-connected the LAN wire to see if eth0 works.
But it displays in red 'failed to acquire eth0 ip address'.

On reconnecting wi-fi by starting network setup tool, wi-fi also can't be connected.
Message recd is 'failed to acquire wlan0 ip address'

Yes. rebooted.
After reboot, wired network couldn't be connected at all.
Wi-fi could be connected by network tool for some moments, then went-off.
Signal strength shown was 32%.

Delay for my reply was because I had to boot back xenialpup for accessing the web.

You didn't find the XenialDog 64 thread ?

Anyway, I tried to answer your question there:

Fred

In fact I had seen that thread.
But because there can be no fresh threads started (within a thread), I was not sure whether new questions can be posted in the same thread (?).

When users keep asking new questions in same thread, will it not get cluttered?
(I am not challenging the system, but trying to understand the modus-operandi for asking Q reg Dogs.

Yes, unfortunately, cluttered it will be, but still better to post in 'Dog' threads IMO, to be more sure it will be monitored by anyone involved with the development.
After all the Dogs are very different from Puppies, so (as I see it) they are just a "guest" in this forum, which is basically dedicated to Puppy Linux only.

The Xenialdog topic is all about Xenialdog and the developers are always looking at it.
Nothing wrong with asking specific questions about Xenialdog there.
People specifically using Xenialdog are going to look for new problems and fixes there or be able to offer solutions.

you first disconnect from WIFI how?
Details?

Did you actually tell the network connection program to disconnect from WIFI?

Just connecting the LAN wire does not tell the network setup to stop using WIFI.
It may think it still should use WIFI and not change to wired LAN.

For disconnecting wifi, I clicked the 'disconnect' button in 'wireless network setup' tool.
It flashed the msg 'wlan0 disabled. Then I connected LAN wire.
it asked me to 'wait while eth0 is being configured'.
But lastly it flashed 'ip address request failed for eth0'.

To re-check whether the internet is working in other OS, I rebooted in xenialpup.
Using Barry's great tool 'SNS', I could easily switch between eth0 & wlan0.
...1 million upvotes for SNS Smile

Any other thing I might try in dog?

I see you are talking about this problem in the Xenialdog topic.
People there know more about the internal working of Xenialdog than I do.
I see fredx181 is trying to help you.
He should be able to, he developed Xenialdog.
Good luck!
