[Bug 1459985] Re: 10ec:8168 r8169 ethernet stops working after a while


SOORAJ S, given you have different hardware than the original reporter, it will help immensely if you filed a new report with the Ubuntu repository kernel (not mainline/upstream) via a terminal:

  10ec:8168 r8169 ethernet stops working after a while

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have a lenovoE540  laptop with a r8169 wired onboard ethernet. When
  the computer is started, ethernet works fine for about 20-30 minutes.
  After that network stops working.

  dmesg shows that initially the link is up and stays up:

  [   41.806656] r8169 0000:04:00.0 eth0: link up

  There are no other networking related messages. Networking starts
  working again if I disconnect and connect again the cable. After this
  networking works until computer is shut down.

  This is reproducible and happens to me every day. There are also other
  reports on r8169 issues but I didn't find a matching bug report on
  launchpad. This happens only to this computer on network, so I doubt
  it's a DHCP or other network misconfiguration issue.
