Hi Matt,

I've reinstalled a few times now, tried the r8168 driver and still very similar results.

When I swap the network interfaces the r8169 PCI card becomes the external card and it kinda works, the lights at the back of the card come on and ping works although it is very slow. Swap back and the r8169 dies, no lights no ping nothing.

Is it possible that something in LMCE broke something somewhere with the network setup, esp if everything was pnp before? (A lot of somethings there)

If so how do you roll back?

Can I install an older snapshot and not run apt-get update and upgrade?

Thanks Josh

You can try the snapshot thing, that was going to be my next idea until...

Some of the guys on IRC helped to diagnose my problems... knackered switch. So try checking your switch/cables.

Tonight I will try and get the r8168 NIC working again now that I have replaced the switch, will see how it goes.

Cheers,
Matt.

Thanks for all the help matt.

Occam's Razor, the simplest solution is usually it. Didn't even think to check that. I checked the switch and leads on that end before but that didn't make a difference.

spent ages trawling the net and here for solutions. Turns out the Cat 6 through the wall (probably the plug somewhere was stopping it from working.

All good now, even with the r8169 module.

Onto part two.

Thanks Josh

joshpond,

Are you still having internet connectivity issues with your MD.  This sounds similar to a situation I had that took me days to track down.  If you still need a hand, let me know and I will try and help.

<M>

Thanks M,

It seems okay at the moment. It's a bit hard to tell as I only have a 3G wireless internet connection which gets overloaded sometimes and slows right down. It looks like it is the wiring issue through the wall. what threw me off was that it would work but really slow. Changing to a different wall socket seems to have helped.

Thanks Josh
