I have dual booted my PC ( which has windows installed) with Ubuntu. My LAN cable works well on windows but it;s not working with Ubuntu, it's just showing up Ethernet connection. Do I have to change some settings or I have to reboot my PC again with Ubuntu? Thanks in advance.

I am in college and I need to login for Internet connection the page isn't showing up in browser on LAN while on working over Wifi it's working.

  • The question is unclear. You need to add details. How do you use your Ethernet cable? Where is it connected? What is the problem? – Pilot6 Feb 12 '17 at 16:21
  • Please edit your question and add output of lspci -knn | grep -EA3 'Eth|Net' terminal command. – Pilot6 Feb 12 '17 at 16:30
  • I have updated my question with output for lspci -knn | grep -EA3 'Eth|Net' – Anmol Gautam Feb 12 '17 at 18:04

Connect to the internet by Wi-Fi and run in a terminal

sudo apt install r8168-dkms

then reboot.

This will install the Realtek driver for this new revision 0a
