General :: Ubuntu Box Keeps Dropping Wired Network Connection?

Jul 11, 2011

I have an Ubuntu box, 11.04 x64, running on a Dual Opteron SFF box (iWill ZMaxDP... pretty old machine). Up until a few weeks ago, it was acting as a Windows 2008 Server, but i moved it to Ubuntu.

Anyway, the machine will not stay on the network for any amount of time, without falling off... I have changed network cards, cables, ports on the switch, etc, and nothing seems to work. I have a Windows 2003 box giving out DHCP addresses, and for a while, i actually tured that off and setup a second Ubuntu box to give IPs... it made no difference. The box gets an IP, and can ping outside for a bit (2 min or so) and then just looses connectivity... ifconfig shows it with an IP (i have tried both Static and DHCP config) and nothing seems to work...

Ubuntu :: Hardy Heron Kept Dropping Network Connection (both Wired And Wireless)?

Apr 30, 2010

using Hardy Heron on a old Thinkpad T41.This is a fresh install system and I noticed it kept dropping wireless connection. After google around, seems like this is a common problem? Then I switched to wired network, and turned out the same thing happens again. Looks like doesn't matter wired or wireless, it kept dropping itself from time to time.
fter checking syslog, I found something interesting...it kept complain eth0 is invalid, then it said it found a better connection?I found that extremely weird..

Code:
Apr 30 06:24:32 support kernel: [ 961.236895] e1000: eth0: e1000_clean_tx_irq: Detected Tx Unit Hang

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Connection Keeps Dropping Out / Resolve It?

May 13, 2010

Two weeks ago I decided to ditch my XP install completely and switch to Ubuntu 10.04. So far so good, and I'm very happy with my decision. However, about 3 days ago, my wired connection started playing up. It keeps dropping out every 2 hours or so between 13.00 and 04.00. After dropping out, it immediately reconnects again (at least when I use Automatically DCHP config). From 04.00 to 13.00 it is more or less stable.

I tried resolving by reserving an IP in the DCHP Client Table in my router (linksys WRT120N). Additionally, I told the Network Manager to use the Manual configuration. Unfortunately these changes didn't help and the problems stay the same......

The daemon.log shows the following information code...

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 Dropping Network Connection Randomly?

Feb 20, 2010

I have a windows installation (partition) but have installed into freespace on the same drive using the auto-partition manager, etc, and everything is fine. I got my network going fairly easily by going Preferences > Wireless and inputting SSID and WPA encryption key (PSK). My router issues an WLAN IP, I can get on the net, I can see my other Windows PCs on the network, I can reach my router, and all is good.So after several hours of mooching about and looking at things, I have updated all the Linux packages via Synaptics (following a prompt to update everything) including GRUB. My dual boot now shows two versions of the OS:

GRUB 1.7~Beta4
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-19 - generic (I am booting this one)
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14 - generic

I also set up my HP F4580 printer over wifi on the network though with slightly incorrect drivers (for the F4400 series as this was recommended at the closest match). It works, and I can print a test page no problem.The only thing is that now (since doing all that) Ubuntu seems to periodically drop my connection to the network and then request the network PSK again, but when I enter it, it spends time trying to renegotiate but fails, and then re-requests the PSK, over and over and it never reconnects. I have to reboot and then I can connect again (automatically), until it drops at some random point (like 5 or 10 mins later)

Ubuntu Servers :: Dropping Network Connection And Other Errors

Sep 11, 2010

I set up the web/backup server for our department and I'm having some major issues. Firstly, the server seems to be dropping the network connection periodically. I checked all of the logs and it appeared to be an IP6 issue as the only message that seemed to correlate with it was "eth0: no IPv6 routers present" in syslog. I added "ipv6.disable=1" to my boot options in menu.lst and this seemed to take care of the problem. However, I woke up this morning and the server was back down.

This didn't seem to take care of the problem. It seems to occur when my automatic backup scripts go through. I have several BASH backup scripts that use rysnc over SSH to backup several computers to the server and the server to my desktop at home. I was able to trigger the problem a couple of times running the backup script this morning. Now, I'm getting the following error when running the script, instead of losing the network connection:

Code:
Sep 11 10:22:40 chemistry kernel: [ 396.892699] BUG: unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at 0000000000000118

Sep 11 10:22:40 chemistry kernel: [ 396.892750] CPU 1 .....

I tried booting with a previous kernel to see if that was the problem and I'm still getting this error. I've searched through all of the logs that I could think of to try to track down any software based problems and I just don't see anything. In the past, whenever I've run into such serious with a Linux box that popped up out of nowhere, it's always been a hardware failure. I've currently disabled all of the backup scripts and I'm going to see if it lasts through the weekend.

OpenSUSE Network :: Dropping Connection - Ignoring Default Gateway

Nov 1, 2010

I recently upgraded a 11.0 installation running on Xen Server to 11.3. I am experiencing frequent network disconnections now. The ip address and default gateway is assigned statically. However, the system seems to ignore the default gateway after a while. Then after several minutes it seems like it comes back.

Ubuntu Networking :: WIRED Lan Dropping Randomly In 10.10 / Stop It To Do So?

Dec 27, 2010

Lspci:
05:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 12)

My wired LAN keeps dropping randomly, average of every 30-60 minutes. Fresh install of 10.10 from iso, Been installed for about 4 days now, just performed system update today, no change.

My router actually completely resets itself. You can watch the lights power off and recycle doing their POST. Absolutely no problems in windows 7 dual boot configuration.

I am no downloading anything, not streaming, not doing anything actually. My computer is completely idle (save for BOINC) and all of a sudden my phone loses the wireless connection which lets me know that my router just reset.

Ubuntu is actually doing this, my wireless stays up indefinitely in windows. Once the router resets, it does automatically reconnect without a PC reboot, but why is it resetting my router?

If you need the bootscript, already posted here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1651262

Ubuntu Networking :: Lost Wired Network Connection After Installing 10.04?

I had some problems installing 10.04, which I'm not going into here unless I have to, but it appears to be up and running now except my PC can't access the network, even though it's wired. This is the first time I've tried putting on a new build by myself as my son always used to do it (my PC used to belong to him many years ago, and is old, like me.)

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Network With Internet Connection But No Access

Mar 28, 2011

Okay, a couple of weeks ago I was running 10.04, got an auto update that needed a firefox restart, so rather than restart, I just shutdown the computer for the weekend. When I booted the computer on Monday it would find sites (www.google.com, start.ubuntu.com) but it wouldn't download the necessary items to load the page. Now I have a windows laptop sitting next to the ubuntu box and it was online with no issues, so I know it wasn't the connection itself. So I decided that the update messed up the system so I downloaded 10.10 and installed that and ran that all last week.

On Friday I got a system update that required a firefox restart, so I ran firefox for the day and decided that since it was friday, I would just shutdown the computer and reboot on Monday.Well now Monday is here and now I again have sloooowww internet, to the point that URL.. times out and won't come up. I have tried doing a traceroute on both machines and the windows box gets all the way to www.google.com, but the ubuntu box gets about halfway there and then gets no response. I am at a loss, I don't want to reinstall every week. I did try to reboot and run the previous version of 10.10 that shows in the boot menu, but that does the same thing. One thing I did notice is that the broadcast ip is different than the machine IP, don't know enough to know if this is a problem.

Debian :: Wired Network Connection Stuck On Connecting

Nov 3, 2015

As a random thought I purged the firmware-realtek package and rebooted. Ethernet works fine now??

Fresh Jessie installed this morning with KDE. Wired worked fine during installation and initial boot. Reboot after package installation and only wireless is working right now. I did install the realtek firmware as part of my normal package list.

This is /var/log/syslog when it stopped working, and hasn't reconnected since. Cable is fine as it was working perfectly with a live Ubuntu shortly before I installed the system with Debian.

OpenSUSE Network :: Wired Internet - Keep Loosing Connection?

Dec 26, 2009

Opensuse 11.2 - wired internet connection

I keep losing internet connectivity from within OpenSuse. I've had ubuntu/kubuntu beforeand never had a problem. I installed opensuse and now after a few minutes of browsing I'll lose my internet connection.I also dual boot into winXP without any problems.I noticed that when the connection is lost I can't even reach my router - which is where I'm getting the wired connection from.So it's not just the outside internet but the local network too. It only happens within opensuse.

Ubuntu Networking :: Setup A Wireless Or Wired Network To Share Connection

Feb 25, 2010

I'm trying to set up a wireless or wired network (wireless would be better...) to share my connection with my housemate, as well as with some devices. The only guide I found regarding this (I must admit, I didn't have much time to put into research), was dating back to 2005, and although doable, seemed somewhat confusing. Getting to the point: is there a way (maybe a standalone program, or some kind of plugin) to share a connection?

General :: Ethernet Dropping Out And Laptop Loses Connection

Oct 24, 2010

I have Vortexbox (fedora distro) installed on a laptop which I am using as a media server. I would have issues where I thought the laptop would go to sleep and disconnect itself from the internet. The computer boots in command line mode and what I would notice is that the screen would go blank and then I would have to go to the computer and jiggle the trackpad and it would wake up. I posted about it and got responses related to the gnome desktop which I could not find the files referred to in the answer.

I tried using setterm to keep the computer awake setting blank to 0 and powersave off. The same thing happens even with the monitor on and the screen display on. A gesture on the trackpad seems to wake the ethernet back up. Here's my old post: [URL]. Everything else about this situation is perfect. Vortexbox is easy to set up and it does everything I want, DLNA, streams to my squeezeboxes, etc, but this ethernet cutting out is exasperating.

Fedora Networking :: Samba And Network Manager In 9 - Setting Up A Wired Connection?

Feb 3, 2009

I have 2 workstations that I'm trying to network together so that I can backup each to the other. One is XP sp2 and the other Fedora 9. Since installing Samba on the Fedora box and trying to get it configured, I have a problem that Add/remove programs won't do installs because it says there's no connection to a network. Network Manager says there aren't any connections, but it worked before the Samba install. Mozilla and Thunderbird can access the internet OK. Both workstations are connected by cable to my router and thus to my ISP (DNS server).

Two questions:- where can I find hints on setting up a wired connection (which card's MAC address does it want? router or wrkstn?) and Am I right that Add/remove is stuffed because of Network Manager?I now have Samba working from Linux to XP, but still can't get into Linux from XP. I tried the Linux PC's MAC address and set up a wired connection in Network Manager. NM still thinks there isn't one...
