Networking :: Wired Ethernet Conection Deminished On Debian Squeeze?
Jan 22, 2011
I have a generic P4 desktop computer with Debian Squeeze. Since instalation my wired ethernet connection will slowely slow down and then quit when surfing the web. Sometimes it seems worse than othertimes. If it fails I usualy can get it to come back back up by going to Network Connections and clicking on "wired connection"and them just closing the window. It will work for a bit but the conection will inevitably quit in a short time again. Interstingly it seems mostly a problem with web browsers as doing upgrades, package instalations, using SMXI and things of this sort do not seem to be a problem. I have tried both Epiphany and the Squeeze default Iceweasel with identical results. Also when using Google Earth a similar situation occurs in about 2 minuits of use. The same computer running Debian Lenny with Epiphany and WXP with the dreaded IE do not have this problem.
I run Ubuntu 10.04 on a PackardBell laptop, with an Orange Livebox 2 providing ADSL. I am connected to the Livebox via WiFi, but I can't connect using the ethernet cable. I think that in making changes to the system some time ago I must have ruined something, but I can't work out what.
I'm using a wired ethernet dongle due to my machine not having an ethernet port, however it sometimes drop connection, how can I diagnose whether if the dongle is faulty or my system is having trouble maintaining a connection.
I have a HP Mini running Ubuntu Desktop 10.04, and I cannot get a wired connection to work. My network card is "Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)", and I have the restricted drivers for the card installed. Wireless works fine, though.
I've got Puppy Linux on a USB key, and yesterday, while I was on the internet with it, it hanged. I didn't know what to do, and I rebooted from the button (I now know what to do ). The problem is that, after rebooting, Puppy doesn't recognise the router. I've tried to apply the drivers that are on Puppy, but there aren't any compatible.
My router is a Xavi 7968 and my Network Card is:
NIC Fast Ethernet PCI Familia RTL 8139 from Realtek
(On Realtek's website, there isn't any driver linux-compatible)
I have installed Debian squeeze 6.0.1 using the CD1 of the i686 version (kernel 184.108.40.206) on my compaq presario sr1799es desktop. My machine has a ethernet card RTL8139 (RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+)(it has no wireless card). I can't connect to internet with debian.
I can connect to internet in this machine using windows xp. I also checked with the Puppy linux 5.2.5 version (with kernel 220.127.116.11) using a usb memory and I had success connecting to internet by dhcp. I already checked lots of forums with related questions but I couldn't find a solution for my problem. I'll show you the output of lspci and lsmod !grep 8139 commands:
lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Xpress 200 Host Bridge (rev 01) 00:02.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS480 PCI-X Root Port 00:11.0 IDE interface: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 Serial ATA Controller (rev 80) 00:12.0 IDE interface: ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 Serial ATA Controller (rev 80)
Why isn't my laptop's wired ethernet not showing? I have a Toshiba Satellite PSAG8U-04001W.
The installation of Debian wasn't originally on this system: it was on an older laptop whose motherboard fried, so I rescued the hard drive as well as the Debian installation. However, I doubt this should have anything to do with lspci not even detecting the wired eth controller.
I have this wired problem with my realtek rtl8101e ethernet. It keeps on disconnecting randomly with my router. My computer is connected to D-link router via LAN cable. This problem does not occur in my windows xp os.
I have to suspend and resume my Debian os (wheezy 7.6 KDE) to get the ethernet connection up everytime it disconnects with my router.
These are my ethernet details

Just noticed that auto connection to my wired ethernet is not being established after restarts I'm making. Never recall this in the past. I do get an auto connect when I shutdown and restart. I'm using 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx.
Also have noticed that nearly every upgrade over the past week or so is calling for restart to complete the upgrade. Can there be any unwanted problems in doing several upgrades over a period of several days before doing the restart? I'd like to think not.
As you can imagine these two issues together are causing some lost time.
I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 using Wubi through Windows 7. It seems to be working but it will not connect to my wired internet connection. It tells me there is no wired connection, when there is. I used sysinfo and its not showing any network adapter or controller. I have a board with nvidia nforce go 430, could it be a driver issue. It works fine in windows though. Tried using a wireless adapter and all is working. But why doesn't the wired ethernet connection work.
I have a Zotac Ionitx A-U. I can't get it to establish an internet connection with the wired ethernet within Ubuntu. The chip is detected, but trying to bring up the connection stalls out at trying to obtain a DHCP lease, like this:
DHCP DISCOVER ... DHCP DISCOVER ... No DHCPOFFERS received Specs: Ionitx A-U Ubuntu 10.04 x64 kernel 2.6.32-22 (also didn't work in 9.10)
I acquired an older hp compaq presario computer version 6310us, and initially installed mint, followed by Ubuntu 9.04. Neither one recognized the onboard ethernet port. I checked the bios, and LAN is enabled. It is also enabled in the drop down menu from the toolbar on the desktop. The cable works fine on other computers, and the light on the ethernet port flashes like it does when the cable is connected. I'm new to linux, so not sure what to do to get the connection working.
I recently did some troubleshooting on a USB wireless dongle hooked up to my Mint distro. I need the USB wireless to access a home DSL wireless modem out to the Internet. The wireless DSL is on 192.168.0.1
I also have a 10/100 ethernet NIC in the computer, for non-wireless connections. The wired ethernet is all 192.168.1.1. I noticed in /var/log/syslog that there are numerous "DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67" messages.
Since eth0 has a hard-coded IP, I dunno why DHCP is trying deal with it. Can I turn off DHCP activity against eth0? How to do that?
i install devian squeeze with the netinstall iso, all work fine except for the auto-detect of my ethernet card.i have a mother asrock p4i45gv with an onboard ethernet card realtek rtl8139/810x family fast ethernet NIC.i try everithing, the ifconfig shows only lo, but ifconfig -a shows a eth0 any ideas?
I'm running an up-to-date Fedora 12 machine with the Gnome desktop (meaning with Network Manager). My network connection is a wired ethernet to a switch which then connects to a Netgear router. For some reason, this machine can't renew its leases with DHCP, so NetworkManager deactivates eth0, taking my machine off the network. I have to click Network Manager and enable eth0, which seems to work every time.
How can I fix it? Here are the relevant bits from /var/log/messages showing a failed DHCP request and then the successful renewal.
Code: Aug 1 04:00:08 ironton dhclient: DHCPREQUEST on eth0 to 192.168.1.1 port 67 Aug 1 04:00:08 ironton dhclient: DHCPNAK from 192.168.1.1 Aug 1 04:00:08 ironton NetworkManager: <info> (eth0): DHCPv4 state changed reboot -> expire Aug 1 04:00:08 ironton NetworkManager: <info> (eth0): device state change: 8 -> 9 (reason 6) Aug 1 04:00:08 ironton NetworkManager: <info> Marking connection 'System eth0' invalid because IP configuration expired.
while my brother was browsing the web on my windows partition he had a blue screen pop up, one of the soft/hardware error ones, not a true BSOD, anyways, ever since my lan port on the computer seems to not be activiating as no wired connection is recognized. The lan port/card is directly attached to the Mother Board, it's a gigabyte motherboard in a self-build computer. I'm just wondering if there's anything I can do to troubleshoot this and see if it is truly a hardware problem or if its something else.
I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 using the wubi installer to dual-boot my machine. Under ubuntu, I am not able to connect to the internet or my router. Everything works fine under windows. I have tried to find relevant information in the forums, but nothing seems to work for me. I have tried disabling ipv6, setting a static ip, but no go. ifconfig shows no IP, dhclient results in no DHCP offers and pinging my router's IP results in Network is Unreachable.
I was going to try out Squeeze on my ibook so I downloaded one of the weekly snapshots of the netinstall image and booted the installer. The installer was unable to recognize the ethernet card of my ibook which I found odd since I have used Lenny in the past without having any problems. Does anyone know if this is a bug in the installer or has firmware for my ethernet card been dropped from Squeeze? I searched around and couldn't find any bugs that were specific to PPC with this installer. It is not a deal breaker as I can just install Lenny and then dist upgrade to Squeeze,
After upgrading from karmic to lucid yesterday made my RTL 8111 -network card die. It's integrated on Intel D510mo mini-itx board.
After some googling I found out a lot of forumposts about the same problem from year 2007, but the troubles seem to disappear on the newer versions and seem to be back now? With those posts I managed to get the link up by using ethtool by setting autoneg off and setting speed to be 10mbps and half duplex. Any other speed/duplex combination fails.
One suggestion I found was to install r8168-driver from Realtek instead of the r8169. It didn't help, result was very much the same.
I booted to 9.10 live-cd and there the network worked as intended (100Mbps, I dont have a gigabit switch)
I really wouldn't like to fall back to 9.10, but my file server is not very usable with 10mbps.
I've been struggling with this a bit now, and I'm not sure what the problem is. I have a laptop with a BCM4401 Ethernet card as well as a BCM4311 Wireless card. The wireless card works great out of the box, I'm able to connect with it perfectly. The problem is the ethernet card. Here is the situation: The NetworkManager menu doesn't list "Wired Networks" at all (ie. it doesn't say "not managed", it just only lists Wireless networks) Going into Network Connections, there is an "Auto eth0" entry ifconfig shows eth0 (which I assume means NetworkManager isn't managing eth0) I have edited /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf to say managed=true I have edited /etc/network/interfaces to remove any mention of eth0 (all that's left is the "lo" lines) So I'm not sure why eth0 is still showing up when I run ifconfig, and why Network Manager is not managing it. Any ideas?
Edit: Not sure what I did but now ifconfig spits out this:
Code: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1c:26:2c:60:75 inet addr:10.0.1.12 Bcast:10.0.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::21c:26ff:fe2c:6075/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
The MAC address of the "Auto eth0" entry is 00:1C:23:8F:D4:39, the same as the eth1 entry that ifconfig spits out.
i can't get a pppoe conection working over a wireless network,in windows I have to connect to the router first, and then put in my user and password to get connected, but i don't know how to do this on fedora, i get connected to the router through network manager, and ping is ok, but when i try to make a new xDSL connection i don't know how to make it work through the wireless network that is established and working with my router.
ive just installed ubunutu 10.10 and its connected to the internet via a wireless conection. However I would like to share the connection with an xbox 360 connected to the computer via a ethernet cable. I changed the method under ip4 in the auto eth0 wire connection to "shared to other computers" aplyed and restarted, however whenever the 360 tries to connect itll take a while and then say unable to connect. I also tried this using a ps3 and the ps3 says timed out waiting for ip address. Ive doen this on windows by bridging the connection and it worked without the use of a crossover wire. Would I need a crossover wire?
I just tried ubuntu for the first time and I have no idea how to get it running properly, my resolution is not being detected, my wired ethernet is not being detected yet my wireless works fine. I don't know what Xorg is and my graphics drivers are no where to be found (I am using radeon hd 6850), it wont even let me customize the background because of the missing drivers, how do I get ubuntu working properly.
It was working just fine, until the other day I yanked it out. The wireless works just fine on the same router. If I login to a windows 7 instance on this dual boot laptop then the ehternet works just fine. So it's not a hardware, cable or router issue. The card even gets an ip, but I can't connect to the internet.
I'm stuck after a clean install of FC14 on an old Everex StepNote (Doing this for a friend). I tried Ubuntu on it first (because it's so easy) but had horrible stability issues and terminal commands wouldn't respond - however Ubuntu detected and ran the eth0 port just fine. FC14 detects my ethernet NIC, but it won't work.
Here are my details. lspci outputs this for my NIC: 00:12:0 Ethernet controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6102 [Rhine-II] (rev 7c)
Here is what I have tried so far - with no luck: - I have toggled the networking switch on the laptop and had no luck. - Downloaded Via's VT6102 drivers for Fedora Core, but they don't support kernel 2.6.35.* - Run ifconfig to manually assign an IP address - which it DID take and did route add default gw as well. - Did a ifconfig eth0 down and up as well.
After all that, I still have a "disconnected" wired connection (and yes, I did check the cable - it works just fine in my personal machine.
