View Full Version : [ubuntu] Lenovo ThinPad W520 Ethernet

Hi everybody.

I recently got Lenovo W520 and installed Ubuntu 12.04 on it.

Ethernet only works when I connect it directly to my cable modem. Otherwise, when connecting it to the router, it cannot connect (i.e. sees the connection but cannot connect). Sometimes it manages to connect, aquire an IP, but cannot access the internet.

All the other systems on the same router are fine.

My Ethernet adapter is: Intel 82579LM Gigabit. My router is Trendnet TEW-432BRP.

Moreover, the wireless cannot connect either (although it sees the networks it cannot authenticate). Please help!

Note, Windows has the same problem.
