I'm new to linux and elemtaryOS, sorry for that ;)

I'm trying to describe my issue.

My wireless connection works fine, but I want to switch to wired connection because of the speed. If I try to connect my computer with a patchcable to the router there is no connection. I try solve the issue by myself but I have no clue. Maybe a driver issue?

There are some outputs, maybe they help.

It's obviously a luxury problem but it gets on my nerves.

Thank a lot for help

edit: there is syslog after connecting the lancable

  • I got the same problem - no solution. – crslp Nov 24 '16 at 21:14
  • Can you post a portion of the /var/log/syslog file after connecting to the ethernet network? – lemonslice Nov 25 '16 at 6:08
  • Sorry for late answer. – Timo Dec 4 '16 at 16:40
  • I found this guide as someone else had the same issue. I do not have this card so I cannot test it. However, give it a shot. unixblogger.com/2016/08/11/… – Eosdude Apr 11 '17 at 19:29

Here is a crosspost to my answer on another question about this issue.

No ethernet connection

This guide may have give you a working solution:

My wired connection was constantly reconnecting.

Network:   Card-1: Intel Ethernet Connection (2) I219-V driver: e1000e v: 3.2.6-k bus-ID: 00:1f.6
           IF: enp0s31f6 state: up speed: 100 Mbps duplex: full mac: <filter>
           Card-2: Broadcom BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter driver: wl bus-ID: 07:00.0
           IF: wlp7s0 state: down mac: <filter>
           Card-3: Intel I211 Gigabit Network Connection driver: igb v: 5.3.0-k port: c000 bus-ID: 0b:00.0
           IF: enp11s0 state: down mac: <filter>

I had to turn off energy efficient ethernet (eee) and wake on lan (wol d) on my wired interfaces with the follwoing command, to make it consistent (you may need to install ethtool first):

ethtool --set-eee enp0s31f6 eee off  
ethtool -s enp0s31f6 wol d  
ethtool --set-eee enp11s0 eee off  
ethtool -s enp11s0 wol d

To make those changes persistent, yo need to add those commands to /etc/rc.local
