With cable plugged in and connected to your router, please supply outputs of
Code: Select all
nm-tool
ping -c3 www.google.com


If you don't have a router please explain how you connect?

the rsult of ping command is unknown host

I connect to a microtik server distributing internet , I must edit the mac adress to match that in the microtik server to give me internet
the original adress of the interface is that one in nm-tool command output ,
i need to change it to the following adress 00:1e:8c:15:91:55
i used the ifconfig ifconfig hw ether command and the package macchanger-gtk to change the mac adress .
but in network manager it doesnt change it stay the same although it change when displaying status of eth0 with ifconfig command .

You either use command line tools or network manager, not both. There is an option in the connection properties within NM to clone a MAC address.

No you are trying to use both. Ifconfig amd macchanger are command line tools but you are expecting NM to take account of the changes. As I said, you either use command line networking or NM, not both. If you want to use command line tools, remove NM.

You have been given advice, but since you don't seem to want to read it I can't help any further. Good luck.
