    Network died, bought new card, but howto make work without network?

    Hi,
    I have a desktop running 64bit desktop version of Ubuntu 12.10, and not long ago my network card died. I bought a new one, but I guess I lack a driver/kernel module or something.

    Now there's lights on the network port, but I still get this error message

    Code:
    Waiting for network configuration...
    ... and ...
    Code:
    Waiting up to 60 more seconds for network configuration...
    ... and ...
    Code:
    Booting system without full network configuration...
    So, how do I go about to fix this? The old network card had the same error messages, but then the network switch had no lights on the network cable from the desktop, now there is.

    Hi, open the following file:

    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/network/interfaces
    Delete anything except:
    Code:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    Save, close, and reboot.

    That did the trick, thanks for quick and precise answer. I think I messed up the interfaces-file when the old network interface started to have problems.
