View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server permanent NIC link down

April 26th, 2008, 05:30 PM

I have a problem with my server after upgrade. It seems that I cannot "wake up" my NICs.

I have Realtec based netgear GA331 PCI (10/100/1000) and on-board one.

Both are installed and checked with ethtool and ifconfig but I cannot make them to work. That is I have "Link=no" message from ethtool.

There is more, and I don't know if it is connected but I have also boot error message about ALI15x3_smb module and something about force_addr=0xaddress. The system works so I didn't pay much attention.

I would appreciate some help since this is my production server and I'm having Ubuntu Server on same HW from version 6.06.1 and everything was fine until today :(
