I'm new-ish to linux so I'm not familiar with all the commands and settings. I've installed a fresh copy of LinuxCNC which came bundled within Debian Wheezy. No problems with install. My wired LAN connection says disconnected. My router seems to recognize the device from the control panel, but no internet connection from linux. The lights on the LAN port do light up and blink when the cable is connected.

I followed a few guides on editing the config file, but no luck. Then, I started with this guide: RTL8111 Linux Driver Guide but I am unable to get this machine on the internet to properly follow the instructions.

  • 1) How can I diagnose the actual problem?(what commands?)
  • 2) How can I fix it?

Per Comment: Here's output:

me@debian:~$

Update: I've downloaded the Driver from here: RTL Driver Read the readme, Unpacked the tar and ran the autorun.sh file. I didn't get any errors. I rebooted the machine and I seem to have made some progress, I now see the connecting icon for the network, but I doesn't seem to actually connect to the network.

I've tried Static and DHCP with no luck. Oddly "debian" showed up on my router's list of connected devices when I tried static IP. I think I've got the right driver setup, but still cannot get connected.

  • Please edit and add the output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A2 and lspci | egrep -i 'network|ethernet' – GAD3R Sep 23 '16 at 17:02
  • @GAD3R output added. lspci -knn | grep Net -A2 did nothing, but `lspci -knn ' yielded an output – GisMofx Sep 23 '16 at 22:06
  • Run update-initramfs then connect the cable and run dhclient eth0 – GAD3R Sep 23 '16 at 22:26
  • @GAD3R Update-initramfs ="command not found" – GisMofx Sep 23 '16 at 22:35
  • Did you have synaptic package manager installed? to install some package offline. – GAD3R Sep 23 '16 at 23:24
