        inet  netmask  broadcast

i changed the network adapter from NAT to bridged adapter. i enter this command to enable it incase it is disabled by default.

ifup enp1s0

got this message:

Unknown interface enp1s0

network adapter

 sudo lshw -C network

  • /etc/host is set. from virtual settings network adapter is set to bridged adapter and set the adapter. this is the same configurations as i did for kali linux, but with kali i got the result enp1s0. i think maybe mint does not show that property so i searched google about it but could not find anything.

  • Do you have any reason why that particular interface should show up? Could you show a bit of configuration?

    Also, please post the output of sudo lspci -nn -s1:0.0 to verify the type of the network adapter.

    Do you have a reason why enp1s0 should exist? Do you have two interfaces?

If interface is not configured in /etc/network/interfaces it's not shown in ifconfig output by default, but you can check it:

~$: ifconfig -a
~$: ip address show

To check available interfaces:

~$: ls /sys/class/net
