wired network - dead
I'll get straight to the point. My wired network card is not responding anymore.
I have set it up in interfaces file (static address). eth0 up and down works like a charm, network restart the same. ifconfig lists things as expected. I cannot ping further than myself though!
The LEDs on the NIC dont lit, neither the ones on the switch (it just periodically blinks). Its not a cable problem, tested with known-to-work cables!
I have uninstalled network-manager (because it was the original problem, bloody erasing my resolv.conf all the time).
Finally i need to say that I installed the latest updates (not sure when exactly the net went down though) and now shutdown is not working!
Made a live cd, booted with it and nothing works there aither (not even wireless network).
You are my last resort of ideas!
Re: wired network - dead
I installed windows on a partition and the leds came back on. I logged back in ubuntu live cd and vuala, it worked. Now theres a miracle to ponder upon. Consider it solved!
