I have problem with my wired connection. To be more specific my laptop doesn't seems to "see" that I have plugged in a Ethernet cable on it.
I tried to download new drivers for my Ethernet card but I couldn't find any solutions. Maybe because I am new to Linux so I don't know very much how to manage the command in terminal.
OK I have insert the command and there are the results:
00:04.0 Ethernet controller : Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 191 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter [1039:0191] (rev 02)
For the second reply I don't know if the following is what you asked me:
Memory: 3.9 GiB Processor: Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU P8800 @ 2.66GHz × 2 OS type: 32 bit
My Ethernet connection had some problem on Windows too. I have changed recently my internet provider and since then my Ethernet cable is not recognized by the laptop at that time I was still on windows. I thought that with Ubuntu the problem will be solved but unfortunately the problem still persist. Please if someone can help me to solve my problem I'll be thankful.
There is the results of the three first command you told me to do :
lsmod | grep sis190 sis190 22570 0
sudo modprobe sis190
