    Default Can't arp or pull IP

    I've been running the bt2 live cd for a couple of weeks now and haven't had any real problems up until now. All of the sudden I can't pull an IP from the wired or the wireless interface. arp -a finds nothing also. When I boot Ubuntu I can pull an IP easily, but go back to the bt2 live cd and nothing. What's strange about this to me is that I've never had a problem connecting to my network with it. It's not like I made a change to the cd or anything, of course. Anyone got any ideas?

    thanks

    delete /etc/dhcpc/*

    rm -f -r /etc/dhcpc/*
    dhcpcd -k rausb0
    dhcpcd -n rausb0

    or have you try a static ip conf ?

    I think you might be on to something, because I booted bt on a different network and pulled an IP with no problem. I will look at the dhcpcd and try a static IP when I get back to the test network then I'll update the thread.
