NIC can't turn on.

Postby hack3rcon » 2019-08-23 08:26

Hello,
I want to connect two Linux PCs together. I'm using a switch like https://vishcomputers.com/product/d-link-5port-gigabit-easy-desktop-switch-dgs-1005a/?v=7516fd43adaa. When I turn on the system then the switch port that my PC connected to it turned on but when Debian booted, the port turned off.
How can I troubleshoot this problem?

Thanks.

Problem solved when I added the NIC name and configure it manually in "interfaces" file. Something like:
Code: Select all
auto eth0
        iface eth0 inet static
        address 192.0.2.7/24
        gateway 192.0.2.254
