I'm using gpxe/iPXE for a long time and recently I tested the new
updated versions to serve some menus using syslinux. I forgot some of
iPXE characteristics, sure, because after loading  the pxechain.0 all
things runs well but I can see a message like: "No more network

After various tests and reading iPXE forums I concluded that the
problem could be the new syslinux com32 system modules because with
older (<4) syslinux modules all runs ok, but I've curiosity about it
and because shows the message.

I boot iPXE with this menu:

   chain pxelinux.0

that loads this menu:

   DEFAULT main
   LABEL main
        kernel menu.c32
        append main.mnu

Once main.mnu loaded, this menu loads (in tests )a kernel and initrd
and the result is that all loads well but after loading, shows the
"No more network devices" and continue with normal booting:
   Loading vmlinuz-x ...
   Loading initrd-x ....
   No more network devices

Thanks for your help and your work.
