    wired networking on Acer Revo nettop will not connect

    Hello

    I have an Acer Revo nettop machine running Ubuntu (12.04). Wireless works flawlessly. However, wired networking does not. If I put in a LAN cable that is known to be working on other machines, NetworkManager just endlessly cycles trying to get an IP and never succeeds. I have heard rumours this is a driver problem. Any known solution?

    This is a me too, I have 4 Revo's running on Mythtv, and the network cards do not always initialize, reboot a few times and they sometimes come back. Really must find out where to file a bug report.

    Seems some where down the line a previous bug has been introduced.

    https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/16212/

    ethtool -s eth0 autoneg off speed 100 duplex full

    Change eth0 to whatever yours is on.

    What was different to the link was that I could see the network card with lspci.

    Have found this also
    http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/....4freebsd.html

    It mentions loading the module manually, so with nothing more to lose that is what I did.
    Added the following to /etc/modules

    if_nfe_load="YES"

    That is about as far as my knowledge goes, and not really sure if that has resolved it,but I can now reboot and all my revos are working.

    Regards Paul
