no ethernet networking
not helpful but good for info
lshw -C network sudo service network-manager restart
/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf changed managed to true changed it back
still no internet
lspci -nn | grep 0200 00:19.0 Ethernet controller : Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I217-V [8086:153b]
this did nothing
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
installed net-tools for ifconfig, why doesn't it have it by default?
it seems like it has the driver, that the driver works but that it just doesn't connect
upgrading ubuntu software packages to see if it helps
this seems to be the driver and this command checks it?
sudo modprobe e1000e
grep of log for adapter
dmesg | grep e100
log says it was renamed:
[ 0.943644] e1000e 0000:00:19.0 eno1: renamed from eth0
this might be the cause of the problem?
tried manually setting ip, netmask dns for ip4 for the adapter, tells me it's connected, guess what it's not connected
ethernet adapter is called eno1 for some reason
downloading driver from intel for
Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I217-V got the info on that from running lspci sudo apt install ethtool
get info on adapter
ethtool adapter_name e.g. ethtool eno1
It is really intermittent though, in using Fedora the same computer has no problems with the network adapter. Like Ubuntu however the sound doesn't work for headphones which is a whole other annoying Gnome3 thing.
