    Network issues - ethernet + wifi on aspire 5749


    Hello,

    I've juste install a Debian Squeeze on my new laptop Acer Aspire 5749.

    My problems :
    * ethernet : I am able to connect to the internet via ethernet during only a few minuts; after that, the network is down, and I have to reboot. I'm connecting behind a routeur, and I can not even ping the routeur (Host unreachable).

    * wifi : not able to enable it. I've followed instrcutions here : wiki.debian.org/iwlagn but it does'nt work (iwconfig returns : "x no wireless extension" for x in "lo","eth0","pan0").

    Do you have solutions ? Here is my lspci :
    Code:
    00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Sandy Bridge DRAM Controller (rev 09)
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Sandy Bridge Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)

    Hello and Welcome!

    Just for a little more detailed info, could you post the output of both of these:
    Code:
    lspci -knn
    lsmod
    Also, right after your ethernet connection drops, issue the following. Post the entire output:
    Code:
    dmesg | tail -50
    With that info, someone should be able to help you out.

    Install network-config, I use this as a simple network manager. My installation is direct connect - I did not need a network manager at all.

    However, I got into a jam when I booted into my second kernel (system specific), and when I came back to my primary kernel the network would not work. I had been doing a reload in times past. However, using network-config - which will only show-up at the bottom of "other" programs, and making eth0 active (check box) I was able to avoid rebuild. Very simple, very effective.

    There is a selection for wlan0 as well, provided your wireless is configured properly.

    I also discovered that my network, although working - was handicapped. Now it is full blown.
