Network card recognized but no traffic possible

Post#1 by bshogeman » 14 Mar 2017, 16:36

04:0b.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8110SC/8169SC Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)
Is recognized by Porteus v3.2.2 but data traffic on this device isn't possible. It sees if the cable is connected and is trying to get an IP-address but it fails. It keeps trying but never gets an IP.
Other network cards no problem but this one fails and we have a lot of pc's (ZOTAC) with this model :-/ We are using Porteus as thinclient PXE image for diskless pc's. Upgrading to v3.2.2 from v3.2 seems not possible at the moment if we want to support all models.

Try to change

Code: Select all

/etc/dhcpcd.conf
Uncomment line with clientid
Comment line with duid

Restart network

Code: Select all

/etc/rc.d/rc.networkmanager restart
This helped me.

Welcome to porteus forum jitempir. This is a promising first intervention. :)
