Re: Cannot get Ethernet to work

Ok, I finally figured out the source of the problem. The problem is with the Intel 1217-v ethernet adapter and WOL settings. Make sure it is off in BIOS, but ALSO they must be turned off on the NIC in Windows Device Manager. Both must be done. It all works good now.

Re: Cannot get Ethernet to work

I installed a USB wireless adapter. The wireless works great. I can now update Mint.

Re: Cannot get Ethernet to work

I downloaded a fresh copy of Mint Cinnamon. I verified the mD5sums. I put it on a USB stick and booted to it. It gets an IPV6 address, no IPV4 address, shows connected, but cannot get to the router or the internet. GRRRR. I am going to try live Ubunto and see if that makes any difference.

Re: Cannot get Ethernet to work

No I didn't. I am starting to think I should download a new copy and try again with a fresh ISO. I know the hardware works as I am dual booting with Windows 10 and it works fine on the network. The Linux driver I found for the card is the same one installed. Thanks for looking at it.

Cannot get Ethernet to work

Hello. I have been trying to learn Linux and decided to start with Mint 18(keep in mind, I am a noob). I created a Live USB with Mint and tried it(i never tried the networking, just wanted to get a look at it). It looked great, so I put a HDD in so I can dual boot Windows 10. The install went well. ...
