    Unhappy BT3 Wired-connection dead, works in Vista...

    goooooooood morning vietnam!

    you see guys, no problem can take away my joking mind...

    last problem i have on BT3usb booting up from a stick:

    inside my PC there are 2 networkcards working, but only under vista...
    the status LED from "LAN 1" in my Netgear-Router lights up when i boot in vista, and i have a great and fast internet-connection. the 2. LAN card is connecten to my external storage called "WD Netcenter", but that isn't important to get it work under backtrack by the way.

    when i boot up backtrack from usb-stick, the system recognize the 2 LAN cards as eth0 and eth1.
    'ifconfig -a' let me see these 2 cards too, and i can bing it up via command line, but no status LED on my router gives me
    "yeah man, you are connected to me!"
    tested with all configurations my brain is owner to (as a linux newbie with basic skills) like static ips, dhcp.

    maybe its a driver related problem? but the cards are up, system-information shows me the correct name of these cards:

    1. LAN (PC-->Router-->Internet):
    Realtek RTL8169/8110 Family PCI Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)

    2. LAN (PC->WD-Netcenter):
    Realtek RTL8168B/8111B Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)

    can anybody help?

    'dhcpcd' is for accesing the ip EDIT: 'automatic', right?
    i've tried it before.
    dhcp and static ips.

    btw: whats 'dhclient' used for?

    please read in my first post:

    there is no connection LED lighting on the router (tested with both cards)
    does it make matter if dhcp or static ips are set on the LAN cards to establish a physically connections to the router?
    status LEDs in router must turn on when a cable with running PC/Cards is plugged in, no matter if dhcp is turned off or on, right?
    i guess my opinion...
