View Full Version : [ubuntu] 8.10 NIC issue

March 13th, 2009, 01:15 AM
after deciding on to join the dark side and install linux on my acer aspire 7520 laptop i ran into trouble.

The issue:

Onboard NIC is not working im not talking about wireless but just the normal lan port.

I tried some stuff to get it fixed and not much helped.

the thing is that i dont get connection at all EXCEPT:

the time i boot from the live cd, unplug the utp cable type in

sudo modprobe -r sky2
sudo modprobe sky2

and connect the utp cable

the second time i try to do this trick it doesnt work anymore :(

my question was, is there any way to fix my NIC to connect always to the wired network?
