PostPosted: Fri 22 Jun 2007, 04:51    Post subject:  Change wireless and wired ethernet connection boot order  

Laptop running Puppy 2.16
Wireless card: SMC 2635W using ndiswrapper and WEP

Everything works great. The 2.16 interface and tools are slick.

Question:
During boot, puppy tries to activate the WIRED connect eth0, which is not generally plugged in. This causes a delay during bootup before it proceeds to the wireless connection wlan0 (which connects in a couple seconds).
Can the boot order of eth0 and wlan0 be changed? The code in /etc/rc.d/rc.network is a little over my head...

You probably have a file called /etc/eth0mode try deleting this or renaming to /etc/eth0mode.bak if you are cautious.

This file is created if you run the network wizard for eth0 and tell it you want to keep the settings for the connection and use them on the next boot.

Thanks for the tip HW,
I am in the same situation.

But on next run of network wizard, I suppose the old situation comes back.
Now I noticed, that during that step at boot, pushing enter would stop the configuring/dhcp work of this eth0 interface, but when I push enter it has no effect.

It shouldn't do. The file is only created by the network wizard if you answer yes to the question "Do you want to save this configuration?"
