    Thumbs down Ringtail not working with Intel NIC

    Hi Guys,

    as posted previously, I'm having issues getting a network connection with ringtail on a hard wired nic on my laptop.

    I decided to try and sort this out today so, as the laptop is an upgrade from 12.10 I decided to boot a 13.04 CD and run from that to see if it would work. It didn't.

    The same test on a 12.10 CD however did work.

    On 13.04, mii-tool eth0 shows, SIOCGMIIPHY on 'eth0' failed: No such device
    lspci shows 00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 04)

    I'm guessing its something to do with a driver not getting loaded but lsmod really didn't tell me much.

    Where to from here?

    Ta

    Peter.

    OK, seems this is an issue with the kernel and this nic.

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1112652

    To get it working for the moment it seems I can just echo on | sudo tee /sys/class/net/eth0/device/power/control

    which is a fine work around for the moment until its fixed.

    Peter.
