View Full Version : [ubuntu] Network drops semi-randomly in Ubuntu 8.10

December 7th, 2008, 11:26 AM
Got a fresh install of Ubuntu 8.10. The network connection does dead somewhat randomly when I'm remoting into it via VNC/Remote Desktop. I'm also disconnected from SSH. I can't ping it and the connection does not come back on unless I restart the computer.

Weird thing is this card worked without a problem in Ubuntu 7.10

It's a Trendnet Gigabit TEG-PCITXR PCI card (RTL-8169 chipset I believe)

Any ideas why the connection keeps dropping and how I can resolve it?

I can't get my card to work at all!! How did you get yours to work. What driver are you using?
