Switching to eth1 from eth0


eth0 died on my dual boot system at home. So I get a D-Link DGE-528T to replace it. Ubuntu 11.10 appears to detect (ie it's listed as eth1), but it won't work.

So I tried to install the files supplied with the card. which are design for 2.4/2.6 Linux Headers, not the 3.0 which I have. No joy... they won't install because of wrong headers.

The Windows side finds it just fine, but as stated ubuntu won't. How do I fix this?

You can rename network interfaces by editing /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules, someone already did.

Why does this machine have 2 ethernet interfaces (not including eth0)?

Or are you confused over the names of your network interfaces? What makes you think the new interface is eth1?

Why do you think eth0, (rather than the PCI controller for example) is broken? Did you remove it?

You are not getting IP address in details of your ifconfig output.
The following line is missing in your details
inet addr:192.168.0.9 Bcast:192.168.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

Have you connected using IPv6?
Please once try using IPv4.
