View Full Version : [ubuntu] eth0 not working ?

September 3rd, 2011, 06:09 PM

I purchased a new laptop (HP Pavillon dV6), and I cannot access internet via wired network. The "wired connection" is greyed. I'm just plugging it in the usual ethernet socket, but nothing happens.

any idea what i can do ?

thank you

Which version of Ubuntu are you using?

Does Wifi work and are you connected to Internet? If so, does Ubuntu offer to install proprietary drivers via a green hardware icon in the upper right corner?

Can you post the output of "lspci"? It will show the specs of your (ethernet) hardware. If you don't see anything ethernet, also post "lsusb".
