(Solved) No network on fresh install

Did a fresh install and wired connection does not work. It gets to obtaining ip address and hangs there.

Tried this but no luck. https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=682

Did I forget to install something?

defaut desktop
print server and dhcp? It was three things that were chosen by defualt, and I just went with it.

Re: (Solved) No network on fresh install

What is the content of /etc/network/interfaces?

Does dhclient return any error messages if you run it from the command line?

Can you assign static addresses with the ip command?

The full output of ip link would also be relevant.

Re: (Solved) No network on fresh install

I have had wicd do this on past installs when the wireless address in preferences was set to wlan0 instead of the wlxblahblahblah address
which showed up with ip link command. fwiw

my mistake-you said "wired" sorry for noise.

Re: (Solved) No network on fresh install

I randomly have this problem after installing the net install from ethernet.  When installing from ethernet, /etc/network/interfaces will contain:

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

This control causes a delay during boot and at some point, this code should be removed, and let the network manager (wicd, networkmanger, etc) control network.  But at times I have removed this code from /etc/network/interfaces and I didnt have ethernet as well. In my case the problem worked itself out with removal of this code and the network manager managing ethernet.

If no ethernet, what happens if you:

dhclient -r eth0
ifconfig eth0 down
ifconfig eth0 up
dhclient -v eth0

Re: (Solved) No network on fresh install

dhclient did not return any errors. One thing of note that I suddenly realized is that I have two ethernet controllers on my computer. one on the motherboard and a card. during installation it selected eth1, but in previous systems it has always been eth0.

The installation said that eth1 was good and eth0 was not. this might have some bearing on the problem.

I will post the interfaces and iplink shortly if I get a chance.

Re: (Solved) No network on fresh install

Solved it! wicd was pointing towards eth0 instead of eth1. I'm glad it was a simple fix. Thanks for the help guys.
