Re: Lithium installer network configuration issue

I had the same problem on a particular network.  Had something to do with ipv6.

Adding ”ipv6.disable=1” to the grub command for the installer entry from the grub menu when you boot the iso worked for me.

I think you hit the “e” key on the installer entry, then it’s like the second line that you’d add “ ipv6.disable=1” towards the end before “quiet”.  Then you press Ctrl-x to boot the modified boot entry.

Thanks!. This has worked for me also, placing "ipv6.disable=1" before " -- quiet"
It seems related to a false detection of IPV6 networking.
OTOH the live version runs fine.

You have disabled wifi on the E800 router, now using it as switch?

Yes. I wasn't saving changes on each page before going on to the next page. Thinking I'd made changes that didn't stick.

You can see the ip of E800, and login?
Could you configure the uplink to be merged to your 192.168.0.9 segment och you only use the four lan-ports?

Yes. Using all five ports.

Good you now have a better working network. But, it scratches in my fingers to test if it is possible to iron out remaining problem...

Also still curios; what is "setting BM"? I can not figure it out...

Shorthand for bridge mode.

Thanks again for your help.

Re: Lithium installer network configuration issue

Partially solved - I did get the network problem solved by bypassing the stock Spectrum ISP router, and going by cat5 cable directly from the modem to the laptop.

Before I did this with BunsenLabs Lithium, out of curiosity I tried to install the most recent MXLinux 19 on that same partition. It worked, and it installed with it hooked into the router and found the network and accessed it properly. So, that is one of the Debian distros that apparently works with this.

Anyway, I got BunsenLabs Lithium up and running and this is the best-looking version of BL to date...

Re: Lithium installer network configuration issue

To me it could well be a very buggy or misconfigured DHCP server running on that router that's causing the issues.
