I searched almost a full day on google to see how other peapole solved this issue, many of them use ifdown and ifup, but for me it is not working, no link is detected. In my mind, i think that the eth card is "broken".
Can some one help me find a solution or be absolutelly sure if the card is "broken" or not?
Do you think it helps to reinstall the system? I have Ubuntu 11.04.
lshw and lspci just say about the ethernet drivers. Can you try connecting the same Ethernet cable with another system to see if that works? Or can you try connecting this system another ethernet cable? This may be initial steps to identify the issue. And after inserting the cable, is Ethernet card LED is blinking?
The cable was just fine. I turns out that the RJ45 connector did not made a good contact anymore, that is why no link was detected.
The quick solution, and i think the only one was to change the mainboard with another one. and now is working.
