Unstable Network Connection

Recommended Posts

I am facing some problems with the modem.

The ethernet controller details are Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI E xpress Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 01).


The connection is very unstable when running on fedora. It is a webstar modem and has been used since past 6 years and so has the ethernet cable.

But on windows i do not have any problems with an unstable connection.


Could anyone tell me how to fix this problem so that the connection stays stable?

Do i need a new modem and ethernet or usb cable?


Any suggestions which modems are linux plug and play?

I also forgot to mention that when i start up the system, it detects the eth0 cable and status is Ok.


Now after logging in, i access the network configration and it says that connection is activated.

Now even after this i am unable to access the internet.


The data light on the webstar modem does not flash. do i need a new one.


Last night i could not access the internet but in the morning, when i went back to the pc, a connection was present. After shutting down and restarting, connection not present.
