Hello, all. Going to attempt to provide as much detail as possible to save as much time as possible.
I have attempted installation from both minimal ISO and full live ISO. Both give me the same problem when I attempt to install Antergos. No internet connection detected. My motherboard has no wifi capability (an old ASUS ROG motherboard, Maximus VI Hero).
In the Live environment, my wired connection is detected. But I am unable to proceed. Opening Chromium and attempting to go to Google gives me “There is no internet connection.”
I have Googled and attempted the following steps:
Attempting to identify ethernet controller hardware.
sudo lspci -v
Returned ethernet information of:
Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection I217-V (rev 04)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Ethernet Connection I217-V
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 29
Memory at f5100000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128K]
Memory at f5139000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
I/O ports at f040 [size=32]
Capabilities: [c8] Power Management version 2
Capabilities: [d0] MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
Capabilities: [e0] PCI Advanced Features
Kernel driver in use: e1000e
Kernel modules: e1000e
Using this knowledge, I did not believe that the solutions I found would help me. But no loss in trying, I reckon, outside of time.
sudo modprobe -r tg3
sudo modprobe broadcom
sudo modprobe tg3
No change, obviously. Because I don’t believe I have a Broadcom ethernet controller.
sudo modprobe brcmsmac
lo no wireless extensions.
eno1 no wireless extensions.

With this information, attempted:
sudo ip link set74:d0:2b:7f:5a:70 up
Error: argument “74:d0:2b:7f:5a:70” is wrong: “dev” not a valid ifname
I imagine, because it clearly states its already up… and obviously I’m using the wrong name. Corrected my input, just incase I’m a dumbass, to:
sudo ip link set eno1 up
It ate it. No feedback, nothing telling me anything was broken.
I attempted to load google.com and instead of immediately telling me “No internet connection”, it now simply hangs. Indefinitely. And I am still unable to proceed with installation because it says I have no Internet connection.
I don’t know what to do at this point. Never encountered an issue like this before. Please help me.
I am typing this from my MBP via wifi, so I had to type ALL the output from my desktop by hand. lol
