There is a lot more mess here …

For example, one interface is set to auto … another I’m trying to set to manual … I’m not separating stuff on switch with any VLANs of sort … so everything is just connected to single switch and TECHNICALLY it’s supposed to be isolated with different IP ranges… well when I enable this interface now I get a blend of manual and dhcp :confused:

Better call @suman (last one having mods on net modules)


Nice reference to “Better call Saul” :wink:

Anyway I realllllllyyyyy desperatelly need a fully working networking stack that I can stretch any way I want … you know having a second interface that is just manual … not having to set up a gateway ( we seriously don’t need an traditional route :confused: ) … fully working teaming …

Anyway If @suman was willing to chip in I’m happy to start some overhaul on that … because it seems like this stack needs that.
