    Cannot access Wired settings

    Just installed dual boot ubuntu, but cannot get any access to the internet (Using a Ethernet cable). When I launch into windows internet it's fine (I'm writing this post off it so I guess that's proof it works), but cannot get any access in Linux.

    Now I've searched a little for solutions and when I go into network in settings and try turn wired on, it will automatically turn itself off if I quit the settings all while not letting me access the settings.

    Something I did find was this post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1956423, where it says;

    I suspect your /etc/network/interfaces reads this:
    Code:

    auto lo iface lo inet loopback
    Append this to the file and reboot:

    Code:

    auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp

    I ran this and got the result auto lo, but don't know how to change it to auto eth0.

    If anyone could give me any help on how to fix the code and why I can't turn wired on that would be great.

    Please open a terminal with CTRL+ALT+T and show the outputs of these commands:
    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net     #this is one line
    lsmod

    Here's the text, wasn't sure how to copy it out so formatting isn't great but hopefully it's usable.

    Re: Cannot access Wired settings

    Not to interrupt praseodym's line of inquiry, but I'm interested in what would be listed from the command

    Code:
    ifconfig

    Here you go,

    m@ubuntu:~$ ifconfig

    Re: Cannot access Wired settings

    Please check if these packages are installed:
    Code:
    dpkg -l dkms
    dpkg -l linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    dpkg -l build-essential
    If yes, you can download this package

    http://media.cdn.ubuntu-de.org/forum...0121003.tar.gz

    Save it in your /home directory, open a new terminal and install according to this

    http://forum.ubuntuusers.de/topic/la.../#post-4987097

    Starting point is "Installation über DKMS¶"

    Re: Cannot access Wired settings

    Downloaded package, copied to /home both the file and then the contents. Got these messages

    m@ubuntu:~$ dpkg -l dkms
    No packages found matching dkms.

    m@ubuntu:~$ dpkg -l build -essential
    dpkg-query: error: package name in specifier '-essential' is illegal: must start with an alphanumeric character
    Would still like some help on how to change auto lo to auto eth0, and that's an error I know is wrong but don't know how to fix it.

    Re: Cannot access Wired settings

    Unless you are using the Server edition of Ubuntu then there is nothing wrong with your /etc/network/interfaces file - the Desktop editions get their ethernet / wlan settings from NetworkManager. Leave that file alone and concentrate on following praseodym's instructions for the driver - check your typing carefully for example it should be build-essential (no space) not build -essential (with a space)

    Here is the dkms package. Alternatively, the driver can be compiled without dkms, see the link above. But first check

    Code:
    dpkg -l build-essential
