hi all,
i live in US and i spent june in my home country (italy) using a wifi connection.
during this month there was a kernel update (from 2.6.28-11 to -13) and when i came back home in US, i realized that i could not connect anymore via eth0.
when i boot into -11 every works fine but into -13 i dont see any coonection.

the card is fine cause i have a dual boot with vista and i can surf via cable....it just doesnt work on ubuntu -13!
how do i reset my connection maybe getting the parameters from the previous kernel?

thanks in advance,
mitch

Please paste the output of the "lspci" command for us. (Just go run it in a terminal).

Also, I've heard of issues where eth0 will randomly be changed to eth1, so make sure that's not what happened after your kernel update. (Just a thought... I haven't had this problem but I've heard of it.)

you might have to follow the same procedure you followed in the -11 version to get your wifi card working

I have a very similar issue... I had wireless (i have a broadcom 4306 as wlan0) working just fine, then yesterday i installed the update to -13, and after reboot i had no wireless. The card is still visable to the system, but i cant see any wireless networks in Network Manager, and using "Connect to Hidden Wireless" doesnt work either... Also thinking that the kernel update was the issue, i booted into -11, and it didnt work there either.

iv been stumped so far.

Me too! Wireless and applications working fine, upgraded on Thursday and rebooted, network appears 'connected' but no applications are connecting (ie; Firefox, Skype, synaptic package manager and so on).

i got it to work :popcorn:

i had forgotten to mention that because of some problem with my NIC, i had to blacklist the driver shipped with the jaunty kernel (r8169) and install r8101.

i did it again using this script (http://www.jamesonwilliams.com/r8101-linux) (with many thanks to the author jameson williams) and i got eth0 back.


cheers,
mitch
