Question No wired networking on my eee 1000 using Eeebuntu 2.0 NBR


I have a known good wired connection that my work laptop recognizes, but my eee1000 acts like it is not there. Wireless works fine though. Any thoughts?

ifconfig returns the following, I x'ed out the MACs.

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

9eIt appears that it believes your ra0 is your default network connection, so I would guess that it isn't trying to connect your wired connection (eth0). I would check your connections with network manager or whatever the comparable software would be. You can also manually make the connection happen by typing:
Code:
ifup eth0
Note: you may have to be root or use sudo before the command.

Would it not connect to eth0 even if I disabled the wireless and the wired connection is all that's there though?

Anyways though, I get this when I run ifup

Ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth0.

That is strange. I don't know enough more to help trouble-shoot the problem. I hope someone else can help out.

Cool thank you problem solved

So I thought I had a phy-layer problem b/c wired networking did not work at home or work. However, it worked fine at my girlfriend's. Then I remembered that you have to register your MAC at work for the DHCP to work. When I got home, I realized the cable was disconnected from the router. I didn't think to check that because it's in a cabinet across the room. No idea how that happened.

QED on Occam's Razor

Thanks for the help.
