  Well, eth1 is some Intel Wireless thing, which wont work in any case. So ,
I used eth0 only.

Faced a somewhat same issue with Philip's PC on Iqara, and their

Yeah, really! The guy at the call centre didnt know what 'Linux' is and
kept asking for a TCp error number (which pops up in Windows) .. after
telling him what an OS is and enlightening him on
'Windows-is-not-the-only-OS' mantra, the reply I got was "Sorry, our service
doesnt support linux then!". So much for my five minutes of preaching.

>>Also write a small script to start at bootup.
Do you mean something like /sbin/ifup eth0 ? Could you elaborate? This
command from the terminal too gives the error "No link, Check cable?'

I will post some of the relevant messages from ifconfig in some time,  dont
have the laptop with me now.. maybe you guys can make sense of that.
