20 Hi Damian
22 I had a similar problem with my machine when I first started using
23 Gentoo, but I then discovered sys-apps/netplug. Install that and all
24 should be well. You might want to check your RC_NET_STRICT_CHECKING
25 variable (in /etc/conf.d/rc) is the way you want it, but otherwise
26 there isn't any extra configuration required.
28 I realise you've already got your original problem sorted, but
29 hopefully this helps others.
