I have just installed ubuntu server edition in order to create a home network. But I am not able to find IP of the machine through ifconfig (showing only localhost). Then I tried

 lspci | grep -i ethernet


09:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (rev 13)

lshw -C Network

Then output was *-network DISABLED


The command to list ip address associated with an interface was ifconfig,

To activate an interface, use ifconfig XXX up, otherwise it would shown as DISABLED

  • @LondonRob Nope, it's just not installed by default on CentOS – daisy Jan 20 '19 at 1:36
