Title: Ethernet Not Working, Intel e1000e 82578DC rev 06
Post by: jerryc on November 11, 2019, 11:30:54 PM
Just did an LL install on a Win7 box and now we have no ethernet access. Fortunately, we have wifi working on it.

Here's what I got:

Code: [Select]
lspci | grep -i ethernet
00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82578DC Gigabit Network Connection (rev 06)

I tried googling it, but I couldn't find any simple instructions that work. Intel has a driver here:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/15817/Intel-Network-Adapter-Driver-for-PCIe-Intel-Gigabit-Ethernet-Network-Connections-Under-Linux-?product=55351 (https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/15817/Intel-Network-Adapter-Driver-for-PCIe-Intel-Gigabit-Ethernet-Network-Connections-Under-Linux-?product=55351)

but, even with some nix experience, I couldn't follow the instructions. They talk about building an .rpm, but I've been a .deb guy for way too many years.

I tried the instructions here:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005480/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products.html (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005480/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products.html)

Here's what I got:

Code: [Select]

Does anybody know a simple step by step guide to make this work on LL?

Thank you.

I've done some more digging. The driver needed is e1000e. It's supposed to be merged into the kernel already now.

I ran:
Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep e1000

and got:

Code: [Select]
e1000e                249856  0
ptp                    20480  1 e1000e

So, it appears as though I already have the proper driver. However, it's still not working.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your help on this.

More info. I ran:

Code: [Select]
lspci -nnk | grep 0200 -A3
and got:

Code: [Select]
00:19.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation 82578DC Gigabit Network Connection [8086:10f0] (rev 06)
Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] 82578DC Gigabit Network Connection [1025:8000]
Kernel driver in use: e1000e
Kernel modules: e1000e

My guess it's probably a simple configuration issue.

Thank you again.

Well network manager is not picking up the interface system name. Looks like the kernel is updated for the card but not network manager. Try manually creating a new wired connection in network manager to enp0s25.

I was intending to write on this subject myself, but I found this at tecmint.

is:

Maybe "state: down" is something I can change, like maybe to "state:up."

Try manually creating a new wired connection in network manager to enp0s25.

Tried it. It appears enp0s25 is already showing in the network manager for the wired connection as the same device:

Code: [Select]
enp0s25 (60:EB:69:DE:64:EC)
Now, I have two connections in network manager not working, wired connection 1 and ethernet collection 1.

Thanks for helping dig into this. I suspect it's something simple, just not easy to find, yet.

Are you disconnected from WIFI while attempting to connect from wired? If not disconnect from WIFI and try, or try wired connecting to another computer to test the interface.

There are a number of suggestions online for this chipset. Let's work through them one at a time. Some report a fix by having the latest BIOS installed.

I notice the driver version is old, but it's part of the kernel. Not sure if changing it would matter, because the computer is old, too, and changing kernel drivers is a little over my head. If that's what it'll take, that's what I'll do, but i expect there's a simpler solution.

Thanks for reviewing this and thinking about it.

Somebody said it worked for him. I don't understand it, if I should try it as is, or if some of those things are variables I need to replace, like the username.

I've read updating the driver in the kernel didn't work for several people.

Thank you for your input.

The computer with the recent LL install is at my gf's, and I'm away from it until next weekend. I'll jump back into this thread when I'm in front of it again.

However, I can make one side comment right now. I've been a xubuntu user for 15+ years, with two short deviations, one to mint, and one to mx linux. I left the both in short order because I found their forums almost useless. This forum, however, has been off the chart phenomenal.

I already loved the OS. Now, I really love it. I'll be converting my own box from xubuntu to LL soon.

Thank you all for the help.

I'm going to stick my head in for a sec... don't want to muddy the waters..


For kicks I was on my Ubuntu server...

I saw your code previously --- and thought I'd try..  (subbing my interface name - lol)
Code: [Select]
sudo ip link set dev enp0s25 upDidn't do anything for me after I downed my interface.. (Pings wouldn't find a host after attempting to "up")

Only once I upped it via the code below did I pull an IPv4 addy (I think yours pulled IPv6)
Code: [Select]
sudo ifup ETH_DeviceThen was it truly usable.


For your system...
Code: [Select]
sudo ifdown enp0s25 and sudo ifup enp0s25

Might be worth a try -- your not changing anything...

For sure. Ever since I found out the kernel now already has the right driver built it, I've figured it would be something simple like this. If not this, I expect something similarly simple will do it.

Thanks for the input. I'll try it this weekend when I'm back at my sweetie's. Meanwhile, she'd doing fine on the wireless, and her computer is running much faster on LL than it did on Win7. She loves it.

@jerryc
And... maybe a simple thing to try, you know just in case it's not already done.
Try changing the wire itselft and/or the port in the switch/router it's connected too.
You'd be surprise how many times I solved a network issue checking the physical wire because the little plastic clip was broken and the wire was not fully clipping "in" the plug ;))

Just last week, I solved a VoIP issue for 20 people by changing the main ethernet cable. Connectors looked flaky and seemed to have "pulled" wires and was not "molded". Was also an old CAT5 so I put a CAT6 in its place.

Try changing the wire itself and/or the port in the switch/router it's connected too.

Thanks, but it works fine with Win7 and has for years. It has to be a config issue of some kind. It's a desktop, not a laptop. Hasn't moved.

I've tried probing for the router's url, but nothing has shown up.

Network Manager can be quirky with things that involve changing some drivers not in a repository kernel version. It can sometimes behave as if it was not installed as a GUI application prior to such a change.
To ease my mind concerning this run the following again: nmcli connection show

And then run: nmcli connection up 'Wired connection 1' (or whichever you wish to activate)

Then run: nmcli dev status
This will show if the correct logical name 'enp0s25' of your device is listed as up. If all this is correct and there is still no connection make sure your firewall is configured correctly. Perhaps you changed it at some point and forgot about it. If all is well there and you are still not connected you can try changing the ifupdown plugin configuration in your /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf file from false to true. I'm not on LL right now so the file may have a different location.

I agree. That's why I'd prefer to just do something simple from the command line or edit a config file.

Thank you. I feel confident we'll get it this weekend.

Here's what I got:
Code: [Select]
DEVICE   TYPE      STATE        CONNECTION
wlp2s0   wifi      connected    FiOS-QW2C2
enp0s25  ethernet  unavailable  --         
lo       loopback  unmanaged    --   


Thank you. I feel confident we'll get it this weekend.


HHMM Unavailable... maybe reseat the cable for kicks..
and still be curious if 'ifup' brings it up..


Code: [Select]
sudo ifdown enp0s25
then
sudo ifup enp0s25


Check a few commands - if state changes .... Hoping for UP   LOL

No suitable device was found. The issue is with the driver not working/wrong/ or not installed correctly/ or with the device permissions i/e Network Manager permissions to the device. Network Manager seems to be working properly though.

You can check your /etc/network/interfaces file for eth configuration though I expect all is already there properly.

Your probably going to be stuck re-configuring the driver.

Nope, /etc/network/interfaces only had:
Code: [Select]
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

So, I added:
Code: [Select]
# manual additions to get ethernet to work
auto enp0s25
allow-hotplug enp0s25
iface enp0s25 inet dhcp

Then ran:
Code: [Select]
sudo ifup enp0s25
And got:

I take it, the dkms debian driver didn't work?

I still have wireless and can get by with that for a while, so I'm hoping for something like a simple config setting to fix it before I try changing a kernel driver, even with a deb package. Maybe I'm being overly cautious, but I'm also concerned, even with a new driver, there's still a config issue somewhere.

Did the readouts you asked for tell you anything?

Thank you for everything.

This is awfully dated but have you tried adding: pcie_aspm=off into the kernel parameters? See the old link below:
