View Full Version : No eth0, only wlan (ubuntu)

07-22-2009, 06:57 AM
Hi all,

a customer, using ubuntu, has only a wlan adapter and has switched off his on-board eth0 card. Now, when he tries to generate a composite id (based on HOSTID_ETHER), he just gets an empty string.

Has anyone experience on how to solve this problem, e.g. by simulating/renaming the wlan adapter as eth0?

Thanks, Frank
