  • Linux Lite: 4.8 64bit
I installed Linux Lite 4.8 onto my HP Pavilion x360 laptop and have been trying to use the Ethernet to install drivers with no luck. When I plug the Ethernet in, the laptop's wifi symbol turns into a spinning circle before timing out and saying I have disconnected from the internet, any help?

ifconfig shows device "em1" and "lo"

Enabling it won't do anything until the next boot, start is more appropriate.

@b930306625 Please check the dates on the threads. This one is over a year old. And the correct answer is to plug the eth cable in before starting the computer.

Surfing on the subject.... is this common for ethernet cards?
I had the trouble with the audio connector, but first time hearing of this... maybe I got lucky. ;)

It's always been that way with the Debian installer.
