Reinstalled EOS a couple months ago after a while on Windows and have been having an increasing number of issues since then.
Every time I reboot, I have to manually go and run sudo modprobe r8169 for the ethernet driver to start up because it refuses to start on its own. I’ve tried manually setting it to start on boot using /etc/modules-load.d/r8169.conf and no luck. The closest thing I can find online is that having the r8168 driver installed will blacklist the r8169 one, but I used the Welcome program to swap between the two drivers a few times, and it still does not work.
Device-1: MEDIATEK MT7921K Wi-Fi 6E 80MHz driver: mt7921e
IF: wlan0 state: down mac: 5a:f8:2c:ef:de:8b
Device-2: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet
IF: enp42s0 state: up speed: 10 Mbps duplex: full mac: 04:7c:16:4d:64:dd
Been having another problem as well where my ethernet connection will occasionally and randomly drop for 5-20 seconds before coming back, though I’m not sure if it’s related or not. Any help would be appreciated for either of these issues.
Some of my machines were acting a bit like yours a couple of months ago. I made my updates to the BIOS and my 8169 or 8168 or OK now.
Might be interesting if yours will also improve
Is there some red in here ? :
$ journalctl -g error -b 0
P.S. it’s possible a more knowledgeable member comes in to help also.
Edit (14h22 local): Just flashed my MSI B550 GAMING GEN 3 with the 1/11/2023 P.60 BIOS with the same CPU R7 as yours. The other version was from october (P.50). Took about 5-10 minutes, reassigned the 3200mhz memory frequency and she’s back online computing. Doesn’t take long.
