Messed up my LAN interface [SOLVED]

Postby josefg on Wed Aug 10, 2011 5:25 am

Hi, while playing around with network settings I messed up my ethernet configuration yesterday. Right now, when I click on the network icon in teh system tray, the Wired Network section says "device not managed". Usually eth1 appears there...
Any tips on where I should start looking when fixing this?

And oh yes, the mess-up was due to installation of an ADSL connection, for which I ran the ADSL/PPPOE configuration in the Control Center.

Solved.
The trick was to clean up the /etc/network/interfaces file.
I reset it to only contain:
Code: Select all
# 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

and things worked normally again.
