My internet connection doesn't work on Debian after a fresh install.
This is what I encountered after a couple of hours searching:
My ifconfig has an eth0 entry.
cat interfaces returns
source /etc/network/interfaces.d/* # The loopback network interfcae auto lo iface io inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp
(I added auto eth0 and iface eth0 inet dhcp manually)
My routing table ('route' and 'route -n') are empty (also after
ping 184.108.40.206 returns Network is unreachable
route add default gw 192.168.1.1 returns :
SIOCADDRT: Network is unreachable
I googled a lot and I couldn't find and answer.
This is after a fresh install, during the install the networking part failed as well and I figured to not configure it yet and do it manually after the install.
After the install I installed the firmware:
firmware-realtek_0.43_all.deb file (downloaded from here ) with
dpkg -i firmware-realtek_0.43_all.deb
