Re: Problems with ethernet card

Eth0 doesn't have an IP address. You might be able to fix this via dhclient.

# dhclient eth0

If that works, then something got messed up in the config file. See /etc/network/interfaces. There should be a line in it like this:

iface eth0 inet dhcp

Subject: Problems with ethernet card

Hi all,
I recently upgraded to Ubuntu Intrepid form hardy using apt-get dist-upgrade. I replaced everything that had to do with hardy to intrepid in /etc/apt/sources.list. The upgrade seems to have been working fine, but my integrated ethernet card doesn't seem to work. I know that there was a problem with the integrated Intel ethernet cards but that should have been resolved with the final version.
Here is the output of ifconfig:
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:1b:fc:20:ff:6d
         RX packets:5 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
         TX packets:8 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:1
         collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
         RX bytes:1390 (1.3 KB)  TX bytes:1814 (1.8 KB)

lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
         inet addr:  Mask:
         UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
         RX packets:342 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
         TX packets:342 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
         collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
         RX bytes:23144 (23.1 KB)  TX bytes:23144 (23.1 KB)

I have no CDs or DVDs at the moment so i can try the live CD and see if i get the same problem there.
Any thoughts?
Many thanks,
