    11.10 wired network problem

    Hi, Im new to the forum.

    Been using Ubuntu on various PC's laptops for few years. Im user rather than a developer and am capable of general maintenance.

    The Problem:
    Installed Ubuntu 11.10 64bit on my new Asus ET2410INTS in a dual boot with Win7 64 bit.

    Install was a problem as the option to install alongside was not provided -after some partition work the install was ok.

    The problem seems to be that 11.10 is unable to access my full broadband speed and the network connection is not working or being throttled by the 11.10 instal. Im using wired ethernet connection through netgear powerline adaptors and not using the wifi at all.

    Used to check - Win 7 boot gives 14-16Mbits/s down and 1.5 up - 11.10 boot gives 2.3Mbit/s down and 0.02 up. Have tried a complete reinstall and the same occurs.

    Connection is fine for my Laptop running Xubuntu 11.10 via wifi.

    Running software updates is hard due to connection often timing out.

    Any suggestions or pointers getting the network connection working are much appreciated

    Have seen people request the findings of sudo lshw -c network so here they are:

    Hi, please show the results of:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
    I suspect running these commands one at a time will fix your problem but I want to make sure of the ethernet adapter first.
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
    tar xvf r8168-8.025.00.tar.bz2
    cd r8168-8.025.00
    sudo modprobe -rf r8169
    sudo ./
    echo 'blacklist r8169' | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    sudo modprobe -v r8168
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    Thank you

    I have a similar problem. My computer is also ASUS, F50-sf ( having ubuntu 11.10 64 bit & windows 7 64 bit)
    wired connection works fine on windows 7 but, there is a weird problem on ubuntu. It only connects some certain websites like google. I cannot use any update tool of ubuntu due to connection problem. I think I use the below driver. thank you in advance.

    Ethernet controller [0200]: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 191 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter [1039:0191] (rev 02)
    Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:1815]
    Kernel driver in use: sis190

    P.S. :If you need any specific inf. about the computer, ask me pls.

    Re: 11.10 wired network problem

    Hi, I'm brand new to the forums, but I've been using Ubuntu since 2007. I'm having the exact same problem with my Windows 7/Ubuntu 11.10 dual-boot: Windows can connect to the internet just fine, but Linux is throttling download speeds, erroring out on page loads, and timing out when I try to download new packages through the software center.

    I tried the solution wildmanne39 suggested above, and now it isn't connecting to the network at all. I've copied the terminal output below. I'd appreciate any help getting my network connect back (or even better, working right)-- I'm still a bit shaky on using the command line for this kind of thing, and I'm pretty much stuck with windows (yuck) until I get this fixed.

    Re: 11.10 wired network problem

    Hi, first we do not know if you have the right ethernet card for this procedure, as the previous post stated please post the results of this command to determine if it might help.
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
    It looks like you have two install programs running at the same time and you can only have one, you need to close software center while you are working with the terminal and vice versa.

    When you enter a command with sudo in front of it you need to enter your user password, and it will not show the password as you type it for security reasons so when you are done hit enter and the command should run and it may not show anything on the screen many commands do not.

    Unblacklist the driver, you can use a very basic method. Just open the blacklist.conf file in super-user mode:
    gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    and add the hash (#) mark in the beginning of any line which you want to enable. So in your case, after opening that file with above command, look for the line that says blacklist r8169 (it would most probably be in the last) and add the '#' mark in its beginning. So now it should look like this:
    # blacklist r8169
    Only do this if that driver is in the blacklist file, if not post the results of the command before you do anything please.
    Save and Exit.

    sudo modprobe r8169
    and your connection should work hopefully.
    Thank you

    Re: 11.10 wired network problem

    wildmanne39, thanks so much for the help!

    Networking is still down on the Linux side. I pasted the results of the commands you suggested below. The reason you saw the first command twice last time (with password prompt between) is that the first time it failed because another process had dibs. Which should have been my clue to close the package manager. If I wasn't daft, that is.

    Speaking of being a bit daft, it looks like I failed to mention that I'm running Kubuntu. Not sure if that affects anything aside from the changes I made to the commands you posted (kdesudo and kate instead of gksu and gedit).

    Also, the reason I've never made an account to ask for help before is that I'm good friends with an Ubuntu member and Kubuntu developer who's usually around to clean up after my mess-ups. She's getting back from UDS today (it's possible I shouldn't have tried to set up my new machine while she was gone, but it was all fun and games until I tried to fix the network), so if you're not up for doing Kubuntu support, I can own up and tell her I broke it when I see her this afternoon.

    Thanks again for the help! Here's what happened in terminal:

    you can move the module by hand:

    cd r8168-8.026.00/
    sudo make
    sudo cp src/r8168.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo modprobe -v r8168
    sudo update-initramfs -u

    Re: 11.10 wired network problem

    Hi annalee, praseodym is very good with this ethernet card so you can follow his directions and get it working with the new driver and your speed should be good too, you can use the new driver that you tried to install.
    Thank you

    Thanks for the help.

    cd r8168-8.026.00/ is giving me "No such file or directory."

    Is there somewhere else I should be looking for it?

    Thanks again.
