• No Ethernet

    I installed yesterday Antergos. Everything installed fine but today i dont have internet with Ethernet cable. I have Realtek R8168 controller. Is there some drivers to install or anything else to do?

  • look at https://www.unixblogger.com/how-to-get-your-realtek-rtl8111rtl8168-working-updated-guide/ for a bit for that blacklisting r8169 you probably need the r8168 from the remo for lts kernel r8168-lts ,


    avoid conflict with 8169 blacklist the r8169

  • If i get it right. I must install the driver from pacman and then i must blacklist the other driver. Exactly how to do the blacklist?

  • as example :

    [email protected]:~$ sudo sh -c 'echo blacklist r8169 >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf'

    dont know exactly but this could be a good shot. 8169 does not like 8168 anyway.

  • @andreasdimo79 I had faced similar problem when getting my wifi connections.

    I used rmmod to remove unwanted kernel modules and used modprobe to load the required ones. Like modprobe wl . Hope this was helpful.

  • I have installed the r8168 drivers and blacklisted the r8169 but after a couple of reboots still the same, the ethernet connection does not work

  • @andreasdimo79 said in No Ethernet:

    Realtek R8168

    what is your hardware specification , Board / brand ?

  • @ringo32 how can i see that?

  • or tell what kinda computer you have ?

  • Is there some kind of command to show you the result?

  • if you have inxi, if not install from aur. i think if repo got non.

    inxi -F
  • @ringo32 i dont have internet!

  • can you try attach your phone if you have wifi general, so you can have internet temp by your phone ?
    make sure you can use wifi offcourse if you have arround.

  • is just dont want to guess… i saw a post on a forum and wiki also told about iommo, but im not sure :)

    thats why i ask your machine brand we can search up atleast not about the chip.


    but is just a gues on some point…

  • @andreasdimo79 said in No Ethernet:

    Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411

    yeah it looks like https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=195251 , also asustek board…

    systemd status dhcpcd is enabled, by installing seems you have betwork but not aftr installed correct like the guy on his issue?

  • @ringo32 So what i have to do?

  • is dhcpcd enabled ? systemctl status dhcpcd ?

  • @ringo32 dhcpcd.service - dhcpcd on all interfaces
    Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/dhcpcd.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
    Active: inactive (dead)

  • try to enable it, sudo systemctl enable dhcpcd
    then sudo systemctl start dhcpcd

    and look if it something changed?
