Ethernet won't connect after login

Post by psicop »

Hello,

I have this issue where Mint won't connect me for browsing purposes unless I UNPLUG & PLUG the cable to my laptop.


#This happens every time I try to access the Internet.

#The cable is always plugged in.


Any ideas on how to fix this glitch?


Thanks in advance!

hi there,
When you right click on your network on the lower right hand side, is the box ticked to enable Ethernet?

It might (or might not) help if we know more about your system. For instance, for all we know you're using Mint 1.0

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
Copy/paste the output

Yes but it is LEFT CLICK. It shows "wired connected. "

Also in the"Network Connections" app I can see under settings:

General > Automatically connect to this network when it is available (checked)

Problem fixed after trying to reinstall Windows 7 on my old machine.

Changed my mind. Logged on to Mint again and now automatically connects without having the unplug the cable first.

The gremlins of Linux doing their unpredictable tricks.

One bizarre case. :shock:
