[Solved] Configuring internet / network during installation.

Hi,

I need help in installation at the step "Connect to the internet" in installation guide https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/In … e_internet

I have a network switch through which I access internet where I manually assign ip address and use OpenDNS as DNS server. How can I do this during installation? Can I install without configuring internet ( offline installation ) and configure internet after I install GUI and NetworkManager applet. I know how to configure using NetworkManager applet.

Thanks

I think you need internet at install time. If your network switch use dhcp, then the network will work without having anything to do. If you must configure a static address in your computer; just do something like that:

/sbin/ip link set dev ${interface} up
/sbin/ip addr add ${address}/${netmask} broadcast ${broadcast} dev ${interface}
/sbin/ip route add default via ${gateway}

But I don't understand your question. Do you assign the ip address in the network switch (in this case, the computer most probably don't need configuration at all) or do you assign the ip address in the network manager applet (in this case use the example above). If you use wireless things might be a little more complicated (but maybe you can use a wire just for installation).

Thanks for reply.

I assign ip address to my pc (not network switch) using Network Manager applet.
