1 Hi all,
3 since about two weeks I have been fighting with networking problems on
4 a laptop. It all started with a big sync & world update that gave me new
5 udev-171-r5, wicd-1.7.1_pre20120127, tuxonice-sources-3.0.17,
6 openrc-, among other things (I'm mostly running stable). Symptoms
7 are that I cannot even get wired _listed_ in wicd, and when connecting
8 to various different wireless routers, the connection died quickly. The
9 e1000e driver (for wired) apparently never detects when a cable is
10 connected, and when trying it through /etc/init.d/net.eth0, dhcpcd times
11 out when waiting for a carrier... I tried alternating kernels (tuxonice-
12 and gentoo-sources, both older and new ones between 2.3.38-r1 and 3.2.1)
13 and kernel configurations as well as downgrades of several suspect
14 packages, without success.
16 Does that ring a bell with someone? Any advice how I can track down
17 these problems?
19 Cheers,
20 Peter.
