Debian :: Eth0 Disapears And No Eth0 Inteface Found
Jul 13, 2009
On my machine (Desktop PC) I have 2 network card : wireless (rt61 802.11) and a wired card (BCM44). When I install debian 5.
The wired card is detected and logical name eth0 is assigned, while wireless is not assigned I install firmeware* software to configure the card. It is done in some way ( I used mnetwork from mepis, it works fine).
Now the problem: eth0 disapears, and no eth0 inteface found? ifconfig gives just wlan0.
Question: Why there is no eth0, it was before configuration of wlan0 ?
How to active again eth0, or ho to create the logical eth0?
My network name is eth2 it was changed by some reason and now i got these errors... i installed, reinstalled, re re installed, tried to run the asistant but no luck :/
* Stopping the Firestarter firewall... eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found eth0: error fetching interface information: Device not found
5.10 Breezy configured as machine controller. Works great eth0 is a fixed IP to communicate with controller comms board. Not easy at all to alter - the comms board is hard coded to listen on eth0 for commands.
I can use eth1 as the default gateway and ping google.com, etc. But when I now attempt to communicate with the controller with netcat, e.g.
Code: echo !HH | nc 192.168.1.6 80
I obviously never get an answer since the request is passed via eth1. Using the -g option with netcat doesn't work either. I had a look at iptables but it doesn't seem to be able to do what I want. How I can still use eth0 as my communication port to the controller whilst eth1 is the default gateway?
I have two servers on a vlan at my datacentre/colocation and previously both servers had public IPs on their eth0 interfaces. The servers are HP ProLiant DL360s - one is a G4 and one is a G5 The newer G5 is now the LAMP server and the G4 has been retired and I want to repurpose it as an iSCSI target using openfiler freenas or similar.
My G5 has public/static IPs lashed to the eth0 physical interface and the eth1 is not configured to do anything yet. The G4 will have both interfaces available - perhaps one for ssh access from one of my static public IPs and the other to be a private IP on the local vlan. Here is what I am trying to get my head around...
The G5 eth0 - Public IP - full LAMP services on two or three virtual interfaces eth1 - Private IP 192.168.0.1 The G4 eth0 - Public IP for ssh eth1 - Private IP 192.168.0.2
Because my traffic between eth1 on these boxes is via private IPs on the local private vlan it doesn't add to my quota for bandwidth. How do I go about configuring the routing and gateways and other aspects of this so that I can run a private IP space network between the eth1s and still serve the outside world from the eth0s...
I am afraid that if I assign the private IPs to the eth1 interfaces the routing may either not work or interfere with the access to the production internet facing interfaces (eth0s).
If I uncheck and recheck "Enable Networking" in the Network Manager Applet 0.7.996 I would expect the wired network to disconnect (which it does) and reconnect (which it does NOT). So I tried sudo ifdown eth0 and got
Ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth0.
ifconfig tells me
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:25:64:e8:18:2c inet addr:192.168.0.112 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::225:64ff:fee8:182c/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
so I am at a loss. How do I stop and restart the network interface short of rebooting the machine?
I got two IP's in my dedicated server. Both are external IP's. I would like to make connections using 2nd IP address under eth0:0 interface. For example: when using "lynx whatismyip.com" should display my 2nd IP. How to do this using iptables ?
I'm running a dual boot Ubuntu 10.04/Backtrack 4 (Ubuntu 8.10) system. I can get internet in the BT4 side but not in the Lucid side. In Lucid I can ping my router, and the network manager says I'm good to go, but I can't get to any web sites. It all started when I tried to put my laptop on another network by mimicking the settings of a computer I had just unplugged from the network. MAC address and all.
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1f:16:ba:4c:8c inet addr:10.136.9.147 Bcast:10.136.9.159 Mask:255.255.255.240 inet6 addr: fe80::21f:16ff:feba:4c8c/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
I'm not sure how long ago this happened but eth0 seems to have vanished from my computer. wlan0 works fine and when I plug into the switch there is carrier detect.

i install kernel rpm after i boot that kernel network not working kernel name : kernel-rt-trace-184.108.40.206-132.el5.centos.i686 [URL] error "Bringing up interface eth0: Device eth0 has different MAC address than expected, ignoring."
I try to generate a server client code. What i try to do is sending video streams from eth0 and eth1 to the other server programs' eth0 and eth1. In order to do that, i decided to use SO_BINDTODEVICE. But the code is not working. Am i misunderstood the usage of SO_BINDTODEVICE.
1-Defining two ports 2-Defining two sockets 3-Assigning host ips on them
I booted an OS from a live CD. The OS boots successfully but eth0 fails to start. I checked lspci, it outputs these Ethernet card details:
(Broadcom Netextreme II BCM5716 GBabyte ethernet)
ifconfig -a returns only the loopback interfaces lo and sit0. The output of dmesg | grep -I 'eth' is:
"Netfront : initializing network ethernet driver"
When I run service network restart I get:
"Obtaining IP for lo [FAILED] WARNING: Deprecated config gile /etc/modprobe.conf , all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/ Device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization [FAILED]"
The output of MII-tool -v is:
No MII interface found.
I was also able to find the kernel module bnx2.ko. I did insmod and lsmod lists it.
I am working with ubuntu and my eth0 connection was up and working fine untill some days back when all of a sudden it seemed to disapper. I was able to access the net through it before. But now it has vanished and i donno when. i tried ifconfig eth0 up but no use. The result of cat /etc/network/interfaces is as follows
have a Dell with a 1510 WLAN mini card and tried the solution posted by pschaff in the parent forum. When I got through with the process, I could no longer connect to the internet with a hard-wired ethernet connection. When I open the network connection manager and click on Activate, I get the message:/sbin/ifup: configuration for eth0 not foundUsage: ifap <device name>etho used to be the connection I had to the internet with a hard wired ethernet cable to my modem. I have attached the lspci -m and lspci -n data suggested
I have 2 network cards eth0 and eth1, for eth0 i set a manual MACADDR in network scripts. Ok so every time i boot, if the cable is plugged in, my eth0 fails to mount or i don't know.. i get this after bood when i type ifoncifg eth0 (eth0: error fetching interface information:Device not found). So i have to unplug the cable when i boot, then plug it in and do a service network restart.
I've looked today on my logs /var/log/message and I find device eth0 entered promiscuous mode I don't remember putting eth0 in promiscuous mode I'm connected to the net thru a router how do i turn that off ?
I have a hardware device with two ethernet ports, eth0 and eth1 running Centos 5. Basically my goal is to forward packets from eth0->eth1 and eth1->eth0 as well as get a copy of these packets for analysis. If I set IP routing to do the forwarding then I won't get a copy of the packets for analysis.
I've just grabbed the debian8 netinstall and installed it on my eeePC 701. I plan on using it as a test web server or something similar. The problem is I've managed to get the wifi working, but I really wanted to get the wired ethernet connection working and for some reason I can't detect it.
Here, the last entry seems to detect the wifi card...
I have a problem with the network. Worth two network cards and Ian wan. Do not take the ip. When the system boots not included until you do the command ifconfig eth0 up. The network card is connected to a router, he does not see it. Router working, tested. Network card is working well, tested on Windows. RX RT packages go, withheld support for ipv6 and packages no longer go.
I have an adapter eth0 I need one shared folder to exchange files, with another machine configured as 192.168.0.3/255.255.0.0
ping is working fine between both machines, but I think my problem is in routing, or I need to add a shared resource and I am having trouble with that... not sure if maybe I need to mount something as nfs or what?
I have a server with two gig-e ports, eth0 and eth1. When eth0 the only port that is connected to a network it will get online ok. It is the port used to connect to the internet. eth1 is used for PXE / TFTP / DHCP server for a private network. eth1 will serve ip's ok. The issue is when both are connected at the same time. eth0 to our LAN, and eth1 to the private network; eth0 does not ping or load pages in firefox. eth1 will still serve ips'. Is there any reason why eth0 would stop working if eth1 is connected to a switch? eth0 ip is 192.168.10.110, eth1 ip is 192.168.1.1 different subnets.
I'm using NetworkManager for networking.After a big Debian upgrade I had a new problem.Every boot it create a new (invalid) "eth0" connection, and NetworkManager connect automatically to it.As expected, the connection is invalid, and I'm not connection to the Internet.
What I do to fix this every boot is manually remove this wrong "eth0" connection and NetworkManager automatically connect to my good eth0 connection.
Note: If I boot my machine N times without deleting connections, I see N same and invalid "eth0" connections.I think this happen because /etc / network / interfaces conflicts with NetworkManager, but I don't know what trigger this. Here is my relevant configuration: /etc/network/interfaces:
Code: Select all# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback
* No "/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/eth0" connection is created in configuration, but it's displayed.
I installed Debian Squeeze on my system two days ago, using a wired connection to internet (which worked fine). After that, I had to install the non-free wireless package in order to scan wireless networks. It now works fine, and I can connect and get to internet. But with wired connection, i connect via eth0 and none of my applications work. And they're not in offline mode.Also, i already went here: URL,,, and I checked if that was my case. I tryed what they say several times in some different ways, but I still can't connect. Even more, if I change something like they say, I get "unmanaged device" and I can't even connect to the internet. And the wired connection works, I'm using it right now on my ubuntu 10.10.
If you want more information, I just tried to ping sites like google.com or ......com using network preferences and it does work, it gets 100% of the packages back around 50ms later, so the internet appears to work. Also, when I connect via wireless, everything works perfectly.
I noticed that when my server boots up, it's network interface on eth0 is always down and I always must run the 'ifup eth0' command in order to get it to work for some reason. I checked my configuration and it looks legit to me...
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
Anyone know why my system is booting with out bringing up my eth0 interface? It's very annoying.
I recently set up a Debian-based gateway+router on a remote site. I've installed OpenVPN and made a VPN bridge to another network (that server is also Debian). The main network has all the resources and also a VoIP server (asterisk). Bridge seems to work fine, except that every time a Linksys phone is used to call - after a few seconds I get:
Jul 20 12:16:05 sklad kernel: [403987.817695] eth0: link down Jul 20 12:16:05 sklad kernel: [403987.817939] br0: port 1(eth0) entering disabled state Jul 20 12:16:07 sklad kernel: [403990.113701] eth0: link up, 100Mbps, full-duplex, lpa 0x4DE1
So whenever the phone is used, network falls down for a few seconds. And of course this breaks the call. There is also another Linksys box (analog-to-voip) and it works fine most of the time. However sometimes this "eth0 link down" happens too. There is nothing more in syslog to analyze, so I don't know where to dig. Physical device of eth0 is D-link DFE520.
