    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?
    Let’s see if there are any kernel issues at play perhaps…
    Code:
    sudo dmesg | egrep “e1000e|eth0”

    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.


    Just posted while you posted this. Late here, but hopefully others can chime in and advise further.

    Hi Deano,
    I am back after using compressed air jet to remove the snots, reseating all the memory and the second processor board.
    Plugged in the machine which auto started and booted to latest kernel.
    So far no kernel panic.
    I think the indications are that I had a poor connection somewhere which I hope has now been fixed.
    No idea why this should only just appear but fingers crossed.
    Will try and re build my Wicked network connection.
    Regards,
