No Internet (inet addr) on detected eth0 connection
« on: September 08, 2019, 09:58:12 AM »
Hi TC friends,

I use one TC 10.0 bootable USB thumb drive on many machines and all of them use eth0 for networking.  Every now and then, I get a machine that will not connect to the Internet (it does connect using Windows). Per ifconfig, as far as I can tell, eth0 is discovered and present.  I am hoping with your help I could learn how to troubleshoot this area Linux networking.

Below are some outputs from a PROBLEM system using various commands and with my comments I hope will give you enough details to suggest next steps.  I have a simple router with typical 192.168.x.x addresses.

Code: [Select]

I know from Windows ipconfig on this same system and network connection that these are the current IP details:

No Internet.... sigh


Does anything jump out to you that I am missing?  Or some suggestions for me to try next?

Below are some outputs from a GOOD system that does connect just fine, right away, first try.  Same boot thumb drive.

Thanks in advance and thanks to all who posted similar issues and troubleshooting suggestions and fixes to the forum.  sorry if I just missed the obvious answer.

thank you

Google points to another distro user having the same trouble with the same card, and he got it working by forcing a PCI reset for it. So either the card or the driver is buggy.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hi Rudock1
Try this:
Code: [Select]
sudo pkill udhcpc
sudo ifconfig eth0 hw ether EC:F4:BB:39:95:B5
sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.12 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 up
sudo route add default gw 192.168.1.1
sudo echo nameserver 4.2.2.4 > /etc/resolv.conf

Then, show the outputs of:
Code: [Select]
dmesg | tail -n 20
ifconfig -a
netstat -r
curl wttr.in

Hi curaga and Rich,

Wow, great ideas.  I need to travel for three days but I'll read on the road and try as soon as I get back.

thanks!
