View Full Version : [all variants] Wired connection dropped for no apparent reason

September 22nd, 2009, 01:36 AM
I searched through the wireless/ethernet workarounds stickied thread but realized I don't know how to diagnose the problem.

I was using my wired connection and then shut down. The machine had been on for a long time (like a week at least). When I rebooted the wireless icon came up where the wired connection icon had been, and showed no connection, and no wired networks available.

I checked the router port and cable on another computer and both are working, so the problem is either with my ethernet port or ubuntu. I tried restarting the network device but nothing happened. I rebooted afterwards and nothing happened.

I don't know how else to approach this problem. Please help me diagnose.
