View Full Version : [ubuntu] Losing wired connection repeatedly

November 1st, 2010, 07:40 AM
I did a clean install of 10.10 just under a week ago and something is really wrong with my wired connection.

I keep loosing all connectivity and have to connect again from the panel app. After that, every thing works again for about 30 to 60 seconds and the the connection goes again. No lost connection notification pop up or anything like that, but i cannot browse the web or download upgrades while the connection is gone.

Then the really weird part. Sometimes my connection works just fine. On some boots everything is fine for a long time (hours?) but then the problem comes back.

My network card is an Intel 82567LF-2 and it uses the e1000e kernel module. I dual boot to Windows Server 2008 R2 and there I have full connectivity all the time.

Please help, I'm at my wits end.
