Lost Wired network connection


My PC (running Ubuntu 9.04) was working fine and since I used Clonezilla to backup my PC, for some reason I can't get any access to the internet. I tried different cables to no avail. My other computers work fine.

What can I do to re-establish my internet connection? I have never had this happen before.

I suspect you have the persistent-net.rules problem. Go into /etc/udev/rules.d (or similar - I don't use ubuntu)
and remove the file called
xx-persistent-net.rules where xx is a number or letter and number.
In future you should remove this file before cloning, then your clone will work straight away.

(The missing file is regenerated correctly on next boot)

If I am in the terminal, what is the proper way to remove this file. Do I just have to type what you wrote above?

something like this should do it.
Code:
ls /etc/udev/rules.d/* | grep persistent-net.rules [press enter]
rm /etc/udev/rules.d/full_name_of _the_file_that_came_back [enter]
