Re: Ethernet port dead



you could try using any live cd (e.g. debian live cd) to see if it is the software/hardware that are problematic

The ethernet port of my Hyundai laptop, that used to work fine, seems to be
dead.  At boot, I get the following message:

Setting up networking....
Configuring network interfaces...SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
eth1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device
eth1: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
Failed to bring up eth1.

Do you think it's a hardware problem?

The file /etc/udev/rules.d/z25_persistent-net.rules is the following:


# Firewire device 00030d53255c8616 (ohci1394)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTRS{address}=="00:03:0d:53:25:5c:86:16", NAME="eth0"

# PCI device 0x1039:0x0900 (sis900)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTRS{address}=="00:03:0d:33:02:17", NAME="eth1


The command `ifconfig -a' gives the following output:


# ifconfig -a
eth0      Link encap:UNSPEC  HWaddr 00-03-0D-53-25-5C-86-16-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00

         RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

, whereas it used to have also eth1:

eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:03:0D:33:02:17
         BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
         RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
         TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
         collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
         RX bytes:0 (0.0 b)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
         Interrupt:201 Base address:0xd800



/etc/network/interfaces is the following:

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth1
allow-hotplug eth1
iface eth1 inet static
       address 192.168.0.1
       netmask 255.255.255.0


Please help with this issue, I need to know if the machine hardware needs to be
repaired or it is only a configuration problem.

Thanks
Rodolfo
