View Full Version : [ubuntu] Atheros AR8131 DHCP problem

October 10th, 2010, 09:49 PM
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop (i386) on my laptop and I seem to have a network problem. My network card is correctly recognized but when it tries to get ip through DHCP from my router, it fails.

lspci shows:

03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications AR8131 Gigabit Ethernet (rev c0)

ethtool -i eth0 shows:

driver: atl1c
firmware-version: N/A
bus-info: 000:03:00.0

And finally dhclient eth0 sends half a dozen of DHCPDISCOVERs and ends with
No DHCPOFFERS received.
