Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed Ubuntu and realised the only Internet connection that was working was the WiFi one, but I need to have a wired one working where I live (which is in University halls) because we're not allowed to set up our own router devices. (Only told you this so that I don't receive answers like "Just get a router and move on")

Basically, what I managed to do was enable wired connections on waking up from suspend, by adding:

SUSPEND_MODULES="$SUSPEND_MODULES r8169"

in

/etc/pm/config.d/unload_modules

It's become a bit frustrating to suspend the laptop right after I turn it on (if it's been completely turned off) only to enable wired connections, though...

So, is there any module I should add to config.d in order to enable wired connections on startup as well? Or do you have any other solutions for this?

Cheers :)
