Internet is disconnected with Debian squeeze

Posted on

Problem :

I am using “debian-squeeze-amd64-root_fs” with linux-3.18.4 kernel to debug Linux kernel.

The problem is that there is no internet connection in Debian when the Internet is absolutely positively connected.

When I ran


the only thing I can see is Local Loopback

Here’s the /etc/network/interfaces file:

# The loopback newtork interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

atuo eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Solution :

It seems you have a typo in the second-to-last row: atuo eth0 should be auto eth0, so the system isn’t able to bring the network connection up automatically. You might also try running ifup eth0, despite the typo.

I’d have guessed the error to appear in the logs as invalid configuration, though.
