I have recently installed GalliumOS alpha on my Acer Chromebook 14. WiFi works flawlessly, but I can't get the Ethernet connection to work as network manager says "disconnected" under Ethernet Network.

The output from ifconfig when I have the cable connected is the following:

While, if I disconnect it, the output is:

In /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf the following content is present:

[main]

plugins=ifupdown,keyfile

[ifupdown]

managed=true

[device]

wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no

What could be the problem?

  • Is there a DHCP server running on your network? Have you tried to assign a static IP to the wired interface? – Panki Mar 12 at 9:45
  • @Panki No, there is not. I will try assigning a static IP: which IP should I use? – Stubborn Mar 12 at 18:57
  • That depends on the network you want to join. You need to know the network address and subnet mask. – Panki Mar 13 at 6:59
