I have installed the KDE distro. I normally use wifi connection but as wifi was not working that day so i plugged in he ethernet cable which is never detected. Can any one guide me how to resolve this issue
Is your internet provided by a university? Are you a student?
Not at university. At home.
I did have the same problem with
linux-zen kernel recently .
Could you post your ethernet hardware.
Network: Device-1: Realtek RTL8188EE Wireless Network Adapter driver: rtl8188ee
IF: wlan0 state: up mac: 54:27:1e:fd:f4:b0
Device-2: Realtek RTL810xE PCI Express Fast Ethernet driver: N/A
This thing helped
Edit /usr/lib/modprobe.d/r8168.conf and unblacklist r8169
sudo nano ‘/usr/lib/modprobe.d/r8168.conf’
Comment the line by adding a ‘#’, like
Save and exit.
Reboot or run
sudo modprobe r8169
and check if you have an ethernet connection.
If the above works, note that this is only a temporary fix that will be reverted when r8168 gets updated.
To fix permanantly, uninstall r8168:
sudo pacman -R r8168
