Wireless works, wired doesn't [Solved]

Post by DanAlucard » Wed Jun 20, 2012 23:30

Hi, as title says, my wireless connection works (get address via DHCP) but my wired network doesn't.

Let's point out some things:
-> not a driver/hardware problem (driver loads fine and i can see eth0 with ifconfig).
-> it isn't a dhclient problem (i think) because wireless get dhcp addresses without problem.

The main problem is that NetworkManager can't connect to the wired network and, if i use the standard /etc/init.d/net.eth0 start, i get a loopback ip address (169.254.103.1) and the connection can't do a thing (i can't even ping something).

My Laptop is a Lenovo ideapad S205 (AMD E-450 APU)

"lspci -k" returns this (for the ethernet adapter):

Code: Select all

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 05)
        Subsystem: Lenovo Device 397b
        Kernel driver in use: r8169
        Kernel modules: r8169
hoy can I see where the problem is?

I don't know how, but the problem is solved.
maybe, restarting NetworkManager 1000 times and doing net.eth0 start/stop 2000 times did something... :roll:

anyways, this is solved for a strange reson, but solved :lol:
