I have 13.04 64-bit on my Dell M6700. Wired ethernet worked for a while, but now stopped working.
As an extra information, the ethernet works through the docking station (port replicator), but not via the plug on the back of the laptop. I have checked that it works with win7, so it is not a hw problem.
The issue is present with
3.8.0-19 kernel, but it is not present on
3.8.0-16 kernel. The exact problem is that the kernel simply does not see that a cable is plugged in, i.e., nothing goes into
fery@fery-M6700:~$ lspci |grep Eth 00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 04)
The driver is the e1000e module.
fery@fery-M6700:~$ cat /proc/version Linux version 3.8.0-19-generic (buildd@allspice) (gcc version 4.7.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.7.3-1ubuntu1) ) #30-Ubuntu SMP Wed May 1 16:35:23 UTC 2013
Is this the right place to ask this problem? If not, where should I go?
Thanks for help.
