I have just installed Ubuntu 13.10 on a new computer I put together however I am unable to get my Ethernet to work. What happens is my computer will go through phases of searching for a network and then occasionally pop a red box that says you are disconnected from the network.
here are the results of my
eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 74:d4:35:58:b2:47 inet6 addr: fe80::76d4:35ff:fe58:b247/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:713 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:1034 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:53473 (53.4 KB) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:65536 Metric:1 RX packets:80 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:80 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:6272 (6.2 KB) TX bytes:6272 (6.2 KB)
any help I can get would be greatly appreciated.
after looking over my config I appear to have an ipv6 address. and I know for a fact that this particular network isn't configured to hand out ipv6 addresses (its a private home network)
