Code: [Select]
lspci -vnn | grep -i net

Your device [8086:24fb] should theoretically be covered by the r8169 driver, so first try running
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe r8169and see if wireless springs to life.

If it does STOP NOW and let me know .. it probably won't survive a reboot but we can fix that.



If it does NOT spring to life (doing the above), try this...

Whilst connected to the internet wirelessly run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install build-essential dkms r8168-dkmswhen finished, reboot, then test your wired connection.

PCNetSpec,

It was the LAN that was not enabled. Not the wireless. Never the less; I never ran the GREP command because after a reboot; the LAN was working. The only thing that happened is that the screen blanker kicked in and I could not get it to fire up the display. I tried everything. Moved the mouse, hit escape, tried control X, space bar, finally I used the three finger salute and the OS shut down. Once I restarted Pepp 10 all is well. Very strange. Thank you for all your help.
