we had a similar thread some days ago. At the origin of the problem is

Network Manager and thus assumes that there isnot any network at all.
This behaviour might change with updates to come. So far the removal
of Network Manager seems the best way to have Evo start online

Just configure Network Manager to manage the interface. All cases I've
seen of this problem are due to NM not managing the interface and
therefore reporting it as down even when it's up. AFAIK it has nothing
to do with static IP addresses as such.


The NM icon reports the network connection as up and it shows all
attributes, IP adress, device type, mac adress correctly. How can I
test, if NM really thinks that the connection is up? And how can I check
if it is managing (or at least trying to manage) the interface? I have
all necessary information in /etc/network/interfaces.

I use Fedora, where system-config-network allows me to check this. I've
no idea how it's done on Debian and I have no /etc/network/interfaces
file. Maybe you should ask on a Debian list since this isn't
