Mint 18.2 - Sonya Network problem

Postby Livre » Fri Sep 15, 2017 10:43 am

We need help please.
We are newcomers to Linux Mint and computer laymen, we researched a lot on the subject but we could not solve the following problem:
When suspend / hibernate and restart the ethernet network does not connect to the PC.
The message "connecting" appears but does not end, necessary to disconnect / connect.
We have installed Windows in dual boot in which the restart of the network works normal.
Thank you very much for some technical information to have the system working properly.

good luck.

Thank you very much. Unfortunately there was no success. Maybe I have to replace the network card.

I have the same problem. It happens if I load Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, also happens in 17.04 and occurs in Linux Mint 18.2.
After suspending, on occasion, not all the time (it was worse in Ubuntu) the network doesn't resume. I am running a Realtech r8169.

ping -c 10
WAIT until it's done. (does it 10 times)
and when it is done post the output
