Re: No Lan With New Asus MOBO
I was reading this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/136836 and the last post seems to be your same lil mobo. I suggest you do lspci -v and make sure you have an nVidia Corporation MCP55 Ethernet (rev a2). If not, stop and we'll look elsewhere. I was encouraged by this possible workaround:
I think that scary stuff at the end simply means type the command exactly, exactly as written after you have checked it three times and sworn to name your next child Linus. Proceed at your own risk! Please let us know so the searchers can see what worked or not.
This worked for me
Add the following line to /etc/modprobe.d/options
options forcedeth msi=0 msix=0
Then rebuild initramfs like this
sudo update-initramfs -u
NOTE: if the update-initramfs bit goes wrong it could stop your system from booting - don't blame me - make sure you know how to fix it first.
