    wired network - dead

    Hi all,
    I'll get straight to the point. My wired network card is not responding anymore.

    I have set it up in interfaces file (static address). eth0 up and down works like a charm, network restart the same. ifconfig lists things as expected. I cannot ping further than myself though!

    The LEDs on the NIC dont lit, neither the ones on the switch (it just periodically blinks). Its not a cable problem, tested with known-to-work cables!

    I have uninstalled network-manager (because it was the original problem, bloody erasing my resolv.conf all the time).

    Finally i need to say that I installed the latest updates (not sure when exactly the net went down though) and now shutdown is not working!

    Made a live cd, booted with it and nothing works there aither (not even wireless network).

    You are my last resort of ideas!

    I installed windows on a partition and the leds came back on. I logged back in ubuntu live cd and vuala, it worked. Now theres a miracle to ponder upon. Consider it solved!
