    Re: If I change the name of the network card, the computer will not be able to access

    did you change any netplan rules to affect the NIC on its new name?
    Did you get the NIC to re-request DHCP?
    Can you ping the default gateway?
    Can you ping your DNS servers?
    Can you ping 8.8.8.8?
    Can you ping bbc.co.uk?

    Also, why change the name? It doesn't affect anything........
