Lost eth0 after taking regular upgrades
I have been running 12.04 for a while now and today I have a problem which seems to have arrived with the latest set up updates via update manager.
I have no internet connectivity at all and ifconfig no longer shows an entry for eth0, my wired connection.
When I use the system settings tool under Network I get an error message saying "network services are not compatible with this release" which flashes up in a box after I see a brief message saying that my network cable is unplugged - which it isn't.
I am forced to use a Windows laptop to access the internet and I have no idea what to do about fixing this.
I saw a suggestion elsewhere that I should install wvdial which I did and I ran wvdialconf but that told me it was unable to detect a modem.
I am not sure that was about my problem anyway.
I am also posting this in the Networking forum.
