Linux networking gone, Windows works
Linux networking no longer works on my PC :(
For the last few months I had both WinXP and Mint Linux (Cassandra) installed on my PC. Couple of days ago suddenly Mint networking stopped functioning - a red X appeared on the network applette and Firefox couldn't connect to anything, not even my router. I tried booting Mint from the LiveCD, no networking (it worked before). I booted from a PCLinuxOS 2007 LiveCD - no network (it worked before). Tried again, this time with DSL LiveCD - still nothing. Windows OTOH connected with no problems.
Linux networking gone, Windows works - Solved
I turned everything off and on but nothing was changed until I pulled the power cord out from the computer. That did the trick.
Thanks for your time and patience.
