Ethernet during install not after re-boot


Hi, just wondering if anyone has had this problem. When I install ubuntu, a page comes up that say I need 'x' amount of hard drive space and that it need to connect to the internet. At this point the software says that it is on-line and the install proceeds as normal.

After the OS is installed it calls for a re-boot. Upon re-boot the the OS says it is off-line and never does go on-line. The computer is hardwired to my router. If tried to install Ubuntu studio, sazme exact thing happened.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Any chance the ethernet device is not active after a reboot?

Yes, I ran a terminal command and etho (or something) is not running.

I want to thankyou for taking time to reply and the interest in making something right!! I think I solved the problem. I just installed Mint 14, viola everything works like it should and I'm still on line after the star-up reboot. I wanted to run Ubuntu Studio, it is a one stop solution for music (and some video) production. But it wont go on-line. So now I have to see how much I can configure Mint to be like Ubuntu Studio! Other than that I guess it's solved.

However in the process of knowledge collecting, I would like to know what happens after I confirm that etho is not running??

I work mostly in Red Hat Enterprise Linux but you should be able to open up Network settings and activate eth0. I would imagine there is a button or checkbox that will easily allow you to do so. In RHEL, you go to System -> Administration -> Network. Is there something similar in Ubuntu?

Another thought is that your networking may not be started as a service. In RHEL, you can run:

/sbin/service network status

from the command line and it will tell you the configured devices (eth0) as well as which of those devices are active. If eth0 shows up in configured but not activated, that will make it obvious you need to activate eth0.

To bring eth0 up, you can run:

/sbin/ifup eth0

Hope this helps.
