I installed Linux Mint Debian 201109 w/ xfce and this just after a fresh install, my wired internet doesn't work.
I thought I'd inquire here before trying things. Maybe I should (have) post(ed?) to the Mint Debian (LMDE) section (too)?
Everything looks ok so far other than that issue.
Here's some info about my install and hardware in case it helps troubleshoot.
1) I had my wired ethernet cable plugged in during the entire install
2) I installed using a usb key - although, I have a defective usb port that only utilizes usb 1.1. but the install seemed to succeed.
3) I usually use wireless and wireless does work - I tested this out booting my usb stick with the live iso - then I decided to install to the HDD
I'm pretty sure my wired internet connection works. I will test with XP (it works for sure whenever I boot X) but I haven't booted that OS up in a while.
I may get to the bottom of this soon (one never knows) but maybe this problem is easy to solve but I'm missing something.
I appreciate all suggestions and advice.
My laptop is a Thinkpad T41 w/ Radeon 9000 and Intel 2200bg wireless (wifi) card. This is really my secondary computer but I'm contemplating upgrading my desktop so I haven't installed on that yet.
I have three operating systems installed on a Samsung 160GB HDD - Windows XP, Debian Sqeeze and now Mint 11 Debian xfce.
Thank you in advance for any help or attempts to help.
This OS ver. looks good to me so far.
