to use a static IP address.

The network is a simply a connection to a second computer from my

machine.It uses DHCP and has worked perfectly up till now,for what it's

Could my problem be a corrupted DHCP. 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 - 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.

I changed the Eth1 address to
                      Subnet default to
                     default Gateway to
Would this be correct
I'm using a crossover cable.
I see that there's a DHCP upgrade in Updates,I hope this can help with this problem.
I have changed my ethernet card on Eth1.
My Iptables have not been changed for a long time,how would I test it for any problems.

 Thanks  david
