When I type ifconfig it shows:

eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr e4:d5:3d:70:81:b3  
      inet addr:192.168.0.6  Bcast:192.168.0.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
      inet6 addr: fe80::e6d5:3dff:fe70:81b3/64 Scope:Link
      UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

      RX bytes:127523350 (127.5 MB)  TX bytes:11102140 (11.1 MB)
      Interrupt:16 

It shows errors 20, and errors 46 where can I find these errors? I'm having trouble with my wireless and trying to debug. Thanks!

  1. iwconfig gives more information about wifi networks than ifconfig
  2. sudo lshw -C network will give you even more information
  3. for logs, you could try looking in the /var/log/dmesg files, although that's a lot to wade through so you would want to check as soon as possible after you fail a connection. I'm not sure there are dedicated interface logs - hopefully somebody else will have a better solution for you.

  • Is this still open or did you find a solution?
