Hi all
 
  Got my V1200 about a week ago and all is great and shiny except one little thing!!
 
  I use Roadshow via LAN on my V1200 and used the drop down network menu to change stack to Roadshow and then configure it choosing LAN and then DHCP and then my interface which is CNET. Then i chose to connect on boot. When rebboting (cold or not it doesnt matter) then internet is not available. Actually it is somewhat half started. Running Roadie to see what is going on, it shows connected but not all attributes being sorted. The only way to connect after that is click disconnect on Roadie and then once it has then click connect. Then it connects fine straight away. So what i ended up doing is disable connect on boot and just open Roadie after boot and connect from there. I have Roadshow running in 4 or 5 other distros including AmiKit and my hand made 3.1, 3.9 and 3.1.4 and in all of them connects on boot fine.
 
  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello
I have the same behavior. I had to add a line in the user-startup to activate the NetInterface at startup :

AddNetInterface DEVS:NetInterfaces/~(#?.info) QUIET

Yeap that is what i ended up doing myself as well. Cleaned the Network Startup file from all the things i dont use and left only the Roadshow command and the clock sync and it works fine like that.

Thanks for the info so at least know i am not the only one.

I have the same issue configuring Roadshow in Coffin 58.
  I use an envoy module and I always followed this old guide in order to set up the webline, bot now it does not work anymore:
  EXTERNAL LINK 
  Also followed this one but does not work:
  EXTERNAL LINK 
Do you have some suggestion?

As netinterface what do you use? I used usually Adriane II renamed as in the first video or SDnet and in the second video

What module do you use to connect to the internet? Usually the manufacturer tells you what netinterface and what device to use in order to connect. What i or other people use wont help you unless we use the same card to connect. For example my card uses Cnet netinterface and cnet.device as a device. If you use the ENC28J60 module which works with vampire, then for the V2 models you need the v2expeth netinterface and the v2expeth.device. They are both provided with the sagadrivers. You need both of them to connect. You need to find out what you need in order to make it work.
