What do you mean by "at the end there is no connection"? That DHCP
does not succeed to get an address? If that happens, you _always_ get
an error message. There is no code path where DHCP fails without an
error message. If it fails much later, when exactly does it fail?  At
the very end, after starting udp-receiver / udp-sender

Btw, did you get the screen where you get to chose a network module?
If not, this means that the system has found a card and succeeded to
read its Mac address. If it is unable to get a DHCP address, this
means that maybe there is some problem on the DHCP server.

Did you try to enter an IP Address and Netmask manually? In that case,
what happens exactly? Does manual configuration fail (i.e. error
message after entering netmask). If you do get an error message, what
does it say. If you don't, what else happens?

Could you also check whether the probecards script gave any error
messages (you can watch them with Alt-F7, when you are at the driver
selection screen, or, in case the driver selection screen is skipped,
at the "do you want DHCP" screen)

Regards,

Alain
