SNS: alternate dhcpcd parameters

March 20, 2010 — BarryK
I was reading some recent posts from tempestuous and that lead me to start reading tempestuous's howto thread on wireless commandline setup:

Some wireless routers are not happy with just this:

dhcpcd $INTERFACE dhcpcd sends the the network card macaddress as the 'Client ID'. They require an empty Client ID, like this:

dhcpcd -I '' $INTERFACE

I have added this to Simple Network Setup, by trying the first method, and if that fails after 30 seconds then try the second method. Whichever one works is remembered and used in the future.


latest works
