View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ethernet on emachines (e625)

February 21st, 2010, 08:04 PM

I have a weird issue with my ethernet on an emachine (e625). It connects perfectly and I can access the internet for a while (from 10sec to 5 min) but after nothing.

When I look to ifconfig, it shows that after a given period, all packets are dropped !

I'm using the default driver (atl1c), as lsmod shows.

I tried wicd instead, but same issue.

Any idea ?


ps: wireless works perfectly.

I installed a newer version of the driver but I still have the same issue...
Ideas anyone ?

which version of ubuntu are you using cause some people use older versions

I was using the current version at the time, ie 09.10. The problem was related to the kernel version, in the end.

I don't have access to this machine anymore but hopefully it's fixed in the new versions.
