    Default Lost internet connection in 12.3

    This morning when I sat down at my machine, it was locked up with a black screen and unresponsive to the mouse or keyboard. Something went bump in the night. I rebooted it a couple of times, got the desktop back and everything seemed to be working except that I had no internet connection. Other machines that are connected to the router have access. I changed the port connection, no go. I changed the cable, still no go. I reloaded the driver, still no go.

    My configuration is:
    Gigabyte GA-P67A-D3-B3 motherboard with on board LAN
    Yast tells me that the network card is GA-EP45-DSS motherboard
    Driver is Realtek r8168 (8.036) for PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller
    Processor is Intel i5-2500k
    Router is Linksys WRT54GL

    I am running 12.3 with Linux 3.7.10.1.1 desktop which has been flakey since I put on some updates a month or so ago. I decided not to try debugging it and would wait for 13.1.

    I don't know what to do next.

    Router problem - 2 bad ports. Found it using the bios setup/integrated peripherals/smart lan cable diagnostic. Put in a new router and am back in business.

    old school way of figuring things out is to look for blinking
    lights(led) on ethernet card on the machine ensures that there is proper
    network interfacing.
