View Full Version : New Mobo = new NIC = no network connection

I installed a new motherboard due to hardware failure. The old Mobo had eth0 configured for a static address so when I booted the new one I had a working dynamic address. Now after editing /etc/network/interfaces and just replacing the eth0 entries with eth1 and restarting networking I have no connection. I also set it back to DHCP and it says "No DHCPOFFERS received."

The GUI tools are useless. I disabled the firewall just in case. What else should I do to make this work?
