http://ubuntuforums.org – I have to NICS, eth0 is static, eth1 uses DHCP. I have these configured through /etc/network/interfaces: Code: auto lo eth0 eth1 iface lo inet loopback address 127.0.0.1 netmask 255.0.0.0 iface eth0 inet static         address 192.168.58.1         netmask 255.255.255.0         broadcast 192.168.58.255         network 192.168.58.0 iface eth1 inet dhcp dns-nameservers 192.168.58.1 pre-up iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.rules Eth0 manages to hang on to it's IP for most of the day but at some point later (Hardware)
