This a simple HOWTO concerning a common issue: users configure their /etc/conf.d/net file, but sometimes configurations get overwritten after reboot. A simple way to avoid it is to the following:
1. Disable NetworkManager
# rc-update del NetworkManager
2. Set your configuration
# vim /etc/conf.d/net
3. Reboot and test if your configuration has been set successfully.
Some examples of how to configure /etc/conf.d/net (assuming you are configurnig eth0, but it can be eth1, wlan0, etc.)
Example to fetch all configuration from dhcp:
config_eth0=( "dhcp" )
Example to use dynamic IP but static DNS server:
config_eth0=( "dhcp" ) dhcp_eth0=("nodns")
Example for static IP and static DNS server:
config_eth0=("192.168.0.13 netmask 255.255.255.0") routes_eth0=("default via 192.168.0.1") dns_servers_eth0=("192.168.0.1")
