No eth0 upon ifconfig...

Postby balteo » 2009-11-12 18:17

Hello,
I've just installed ubuntu 9.04 on a very recent computer and my network adapter does not appear as eth0.

-Here is the output of ifconfig
Code: Select all
lo        Link encap:Boucle locale 
          inet adr:127.0.0.1  Masque:255.0.0.0
          adr inet6: ::1/128 Scope:Hôte

          Octets reçus:240 (240.0 B) Octets transmis:240 (240.0 B)


-However lspci shows my network adapter (see towards the end of the output).

Here is the std error from a networking restart.

and std output from the same restart:

 * Reconfiguring network interfaces...
Failed to bring up eth0.
   ...done.


Note that I have added eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Julien.

Forgive me if you've already checked, but let's eliminate the basics first. Is your eth0 built in to your motherboard? If so, make sure it is turned on in BIOS. Even if you have had another OS that found it, check again.

If eth0 is an added card, try another slot.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

I always keep a live-cd handy; one that can be trusted. If you have one, boot it up. If it detects your hardware properly, then you have a software problem with your ubuntu 9.04 install.

Good idea. I checked in the Bios and the "On-board LAN controller" is enabled.

Will do! I am downloading 9.10 right now.

Thanks,

Thanks to all,
Here is how I sorted the problem:
1. Downloaded and installed the driver for the following device: NetLink BCM57780 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (Broadcom)
2. Network adapter is now ok.
3. I am now able to upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10 using the web.
Thanks again,
Julien.

Good for you. Next time you have problems with your ubuntu installation, why don't you stop by at the ubuntuforums?

No, I don't think that ubuntuforums is an unfriendly place. I think the expertise of the average user is significantly lower than what you find here. I also think it (still) is a less tolerant place.

I think the reason one posts here rather than there is that you are less likely to get a dozen suggestions from people who are absolutely and utterly clueless. But that still doesn't mean that a forum explicitly and exclusively dedicated to Debian is the correct and proper place to ask for help with your Ubuntu problems.

i meant "less tolerant", but missed the correct word.
< long rant about what i consider as friendly removed. short: this place i do, as it can accept me >

i am used to ranting, so i just add something for the one who asked about his driver.
