[ubuntu] Intermittent internet to no internet on wired eth0

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm trying to get consistent access to the internet on my Ubuntu 12.10 AMD_64 machine. Right now the connection is completely down, but sometimes it works. I am typing this on my Windows machine and all information is from memory since I can't post from Ubuntu. I'm connecting using a wired connection. The connection works fine while booted into Windows, but is intermittent to non-existent while booted into Ubuntu on the same machine. I've tried updating the drivers, but that doesn't seem to have any effect of the problem. (Chip is the Realtek 8168, I've also used a wireless USB dongle (Hardware)
