I have created two small scripts that I execute to set my IP settings as I do not have a DHCP system in place. The files are simple.
name setip ifconfig /dev/net/ipro1000/0 192.168.0.5 broadcast 192.168.0.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
name setroute route delete /dev/net/ipro1000/0 default 192.168.0.254 route add /dev/net/ipro1000/0 default gateway 192.168.0.1
After execution ifconfig and route shows that the settings are in place. I can then ping the local network as well as ping internet sites. When I execute Opera I then get page cannot be displayed. Leaving Opera open and going back to the shell I see that ifconfig shows the default IP information has been reinstated and my changes are gone. Re-running my script sets it back, then going into Opera I can now browse. I also note that periodically the IP information will get lost and browsing in Opera will cease requiring re-run of the scripts.
