    Default On-board NIC no longer working with Wicked or Network Manager

    Coming back from having had a very rough week with Covid, I accept that I now have even fewer working grey cells than before but didn't think the virus would extend into my HP Z640 workstation! However, I have failed entirely to be able to obtain a wan connection from my workstation on-board NIC. To get back on line I have had to use an USB>lan adaptor which, with Network Manager enabled, works immediately.

    My initial reaction was a possible hardware problem but if I boot to windoze the NIC works without a hitch.

    Could the problem be due to a recent Leap 15.3 update? I am already having to revert to an older kernel because of a kernel panic crash which I cannot overcome and now having no wan connection is all too much. Does anybody else have a similar problem and where should i look first to solve the NIC problem?

    Did you configure it via NetworkManager?
    Code:
    nmcli d
    Code:
    nmcli c

    I had a working system using Wicked and a fixed IP before I was hit by Covid.
    A week later and not doing much in between I had no working connection.
    Still using Wicked but changing to dhcp didn't work so enabled NM and couldn't get that to work either. Hence use of USB dongle.
    Here is the present story:-

    So, eth0 is disconnected currently?

    If you connect this NIC, then its link status should reflect that?
    Code:
    ip link
    This may be useful as well

    The NIC is connected but no longer configured.
    Here is what I have for the NIC:-

    Code:

    1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000

    2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP mode DEFAULT group default qlen 1000 
        link/ether 70:5a:0f:3a:fa:27 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

    Ok, and have you tried to create a DHCP connection when eth0 (Intel Ethernet Connection (2) I218-LM) is in use?

    Hi Deano,
    Many thanks for your continued support.
    I started afresh this morning but all my efforts to achieve a dhcp connection from eth0 fail.
    If I enable eth1, which is the USB connection, this connects immediately and works.

    If I pull the usb plug so that only the lan is connected to switch the NM sticks at "setting network address."

    To send this I must plug in the USB which then works without having to make any adjustments and the NM app shows:-

    etho (eth1) connected.

    Never ever had this problem before and am totally lost.
    What next?

    I noted at the start of this thread that I had to downgrade to kernel 5.3.18-150300.59.87-default because of a kernel panic which has frustrated my being able to check any earlier boot logs.

    In desperation at my NIC problem I tried to boot to the most recent upgrade. This worked, at least to the point where I could open these pages but then went into kernel panic mode so had to reboot using power switch. I rebooted back to the above version which was the last one which worked reliably and loh and behold, I now have two active network connections. I unplugged the USB and the on board NIC is behaving perfectly.

    Not sure what to do next but am thinking of re-seating all my boards just in case there is a dodgy connection and then doing some memory tests. Cannot think of anything else.
    All ideas welcome.
