Description of problem:
I had a hub on my win\lin network.  Using SMB to connex.  I pulled the hub and 
replaced it with a D-LINK DSL router.  Now the system throws an error on the 
eth0 card when I try to use DHCP.  I had the network set to a static IP for the local network and I maybe missing something in switchover.  I 
have tried to set up an eth1, but it is throwing same error.  Also, running 
APACHE as localhost,  eth0 is only listed card in System Settings | 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.set up Eth0 as static IP on hub
2.switch to DSL router
3.update Eth0 to DHCP
4.Try Activating Eth0 card from xwindows | System Settings | Network
5.error thrown

Actual Results:  Here is error dump::
Traceback ( most recent call last):

Comment 1 B. Smith 2003-06-12 14:34:50 UTC
I seem to have resolved this problem.
Action Taken:: < In xWindows|System Settings|Network >
1. Uloaded all etho devices
2. Added my Router IP to HOSTS tab
3. Added Router IP to DNS tab
4. Re-installed the ETHO device
