I have a Dell Inspiron 5315 and was using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 32-bit. All was working and I did a update to 16.10 32-bit and I lost the Ethernet connection. I don't have WiFi on the desktop. It has a AMD Athlon64 processor. How do I get the Ethernet working again. Thanks for any help y'all can give.

I faced the same issue after upgrading to 16.10 from 16.04.

I used the following command to get ethernet working again.

sudo touch /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/10-globally-managed-devices.conf

Restart the PC after running the command.

Check the following thread for more info:
