Now, here are the latest logs: (I left the names in because I don't care, it's not like you can track me down by my name)
johannes@linuxmint ~ $ ping -c4 192.168.1.1
connect: Network is unreachable
johannes@linuxmint ~ $ iptables -F
FATAL: Error inserting ip_tables (/lib/modules/2.6.35-22-generic/kernel/net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.ko): Operation not permitted

Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

Can you connect to anything after issuing the following?

Code:
$ sudo service NetworkManager restart
Good luck. ;-)

Code:
sudo service network-manager restart

Kind regards,

Eric

I restarted it, after that a popup or whateevr you may call it - a notification - came up on the right side of the screen, saying "Fixed network - Fixed network connection disabled" etc. I use Estonian, so it may be a bit inaccurate. (The picture near the notification was a physical cable port with a red X next to it) The paste after restart is here:
johannes@linuxmint ~$ sudo service network-manager restart
[sudo] password for johannes:
network-manager start/running, process 1878

BTW If you're wondering, I am using a memory stick to transfer pastes over from Mint to Windows.

Could you connect to anything after the restart?

There shouldn't be a reason that the card is disabled in bios, but have you checked it? Enter the bios and have a look.

Good luck. ;-)

If it disabled by BIOS, shouldn't the whole computer lose internet connection?

My BIOS doesn't let me access network cards. No menu for that.
Here are a few screenshots:

Some Googling is telling me there is a problem with the driver. This post tells me there may be a solution by installing eth-tool and modifying /etc/network/interfaces.

http://adam.rosi-kessel.org/weblog/2...k-down-problem

At this point I'd give that a try.

Good luck. ;-)

Now. I transferred this topic to linux mint forums. They have no clue. I'll give you some latest infos:

Here are the links to my eth0 config. The mac address is my router's.
I am not willing to give up this soon.
But.. But.. Isn't installing ethtool internet-based?

If you can transfer commands and data via thumb drive, couldn't you download ethtool to the same drive and install from there?

Good luck. ;-)

Hm.. I could try that, but will it screw something in Windows up?
I am hoping that it's the firewall, but it isn't.
I herd that broadcom is the anti-linux network carder. Is it true?
I am facing something that will work if I seriously and irreversably edit my hardware, right?

You shouldn't have any problems from the Windows side as long as don't install anything or make any changes on the Windows side. I seem to recall some years ago that some Windows drivers shutdown some hardware that gave the Linux drivers some trouble, but I don't recall that ever being the case in reverse.

Your Broadcom chip is actually your wireless card, not the wired card. The wired card is the Realtek. For the record, most Broadcom chips are supported well, either by open source drivers or the Broadcom STA drivers.

The r8169 module is loaded and it appears you're getting an IP, you just can't connect out. I believe you have a driver issue and either upgrading or attempting the "fix" from my post #25 should help. The post also states "Update 6/24/08: Linux 2.6.26-rc5 fixes the problem 100% for me." With that in mind what is the output from the following please?

Code:
$ uname -r
Good luck. ;-)

I read that "automatic link recognition" won't work if I do that fix, what does it mean? Does it mean that I have to paste all and any URLs into the address bar?

How do I actually install programs to Linux without an apt-get install? (everything I have done with it is very basic, I have used apt-get and nothing moar.)
