    network not working 8.0.4

    hi, I am new to ubuntu new to this list

    I downloaded and installed 8.04 desktop and I can not make a Ethernet connection. The ASUS motherboard has a Attansic nic. On reading this thread http://ubuntu-utah.ubuntuforums.org/...=429845&page=8

    I believed the driver although installed to be bad so fitted a Intel pro 100 nic from the scrap box. After much fiddling around with my limited knowledge of all things nix I could not get this to work either. I gave up and installed fedora to test things the intel nic worked but there was no driver for the attansic.

    So now I have reinstalled unbuntu but still no joy.
    The environment is a LAN the DHCP server is WIN 2003 I have tried both cards configured static and DHCP neither works either way. got me stumped.

    Any Suggestions or the embarrassingly obvious?

    Re: network not working 8.0.4

    eth1, your Attansic, is likely not to work until a better module is written. I suggest amending your /etc/network/interfaces to look like:
    Code:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    #auto eth1
    iface eth1 inet dhcp
    
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet static
    address xx.xx.32.208
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    gateway xx.xx.32.2
    The # will stop eth1, your Attansic, from starting, and auto eth0 should start eth0. Now do:
    Code:
    sudo ifdown eth0 && sudo ifup eth0
    ping -c3 xx.xx.32.2
    Substitute your actual gatewy address, of course. Are you connected?

    Re: network not working 8.0.4

    hi,
    In other words your suggesting the L2 module is preventing the intel from working ? Sadly no.

    For good measure I tried you suggestion, but the intel nic will still not work.

    I went one further and disabled the attansic in the BIOs so the module wont even load but still no luck.

    I am missing somthing here , (talking about intel nic now )
    Card seems to be configured, interface is started running, yet nothing at all comes from or goes into this box.
