lspci | grep Ethernet


sudo lshw -C network



Remember - Linux commands ARE case sensitive.

Hi :slight_smile:

Thanks for getting back to me so quickley with an replye i asked what you want me to do and i have attched 4 pictures with the resluts of the searches you asked me todo:)

Thanks for all your help so fair in this matter, Just wounding if you had an msn or aim or somthink that we can talk to ech other easyer

Thanks :slight_smile:

try entering:

sudo ifup eth0

then try:

ping -c 5


if the ping doesnโ€™t work, send me the output from:



can you also send me the contents of /etc/network/interfaces

edit your /etc/network/interfaces file, and add these lines to the bottom:

To setup the eth0 interface to get its IP from a DHCP server

[b]auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp[/b]

to setup eth0 with a static IP

[b]auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address netmask gateway[/b]

obviously you will need to enter YOUR network addresses in a static setup.

now reboot, then test your connection with:

ping -c 5

just for clarity, thatโ€™s a zero in eth0
