How do I reconfigure Eth1. > I am still slightly confused - how are you connecting to the Windows machine? (hub, router, crossover cable?) I can see eth0 being set up using DHCP, but eth1? That would require that the Windows machine be running a DHCP server, or some other device running a DHCP server. (I have even seen print servers that have the option of running a DHCP server.) Have you removed or changed any device on the home network? A quick and dirty fix is to use one of the network configuring tools to give eth1 a static IP of 192.168.0.1 - you can run system-config-network, use System --> Administration --> Network, highlight eth1, and click on edit, or even manually edit ifcfg-eth1. As far as what has changed, it is hard to say. If you were always using DHCP on eth1, and you have not changed any hardware, then maybe a firewall change is blocking DHCP on eth1, or a change on the Windows machine has turned off a DHCP server running on that box.
