Can't seem to get any kind of network connection up and working for the internet. My Realtek ethernet card is identified perfectly. My network settings (DNS, static IP etc) have been configured and saved successfully.
The network says that it will use eth0 which is where my ethernet card is. Every time I leave the network configuration settings it says I have to reboot or restart network services. I have tried both and also tried ticking "use network manager" and everytime I switch on the card is not activated, but still fully configured. Obviously I have to restart network services when I recheck the activate box, but then when I go back in, the box is unticked.
How do I get my machine on to the internet, dudes? This is driving me nuts. I know F9 is the razor wound of bleeding edge but I'm sure they could get the networking right by this stage (mind you, sound ain't working either.....Intel HDA).
I've even tried configuration from the command line and get the same problem. If I can get on the net I'll start testing some other bits but I need this very, very basic function first.
Hope to hear from someone soon, goodnight.
