Subject description: Failed to connect to wired network eth0
 

The other night because of a storm we turned of the router. Since then have not been able to connect to the internet. Doing simple network setup get this:
Failed to connect to wired network 'eth0'

The network does exist, however failed to negotiate with the DHCP server.

Have also tried entering static ip address in Network Connection Wizard with no success.

try in a console
Code:
ifconfig eth0 down, (enter),  ifconfig eth0 up (enter)

[INSTRUCTION ENTER!]
check
Code:
ifconfig
afterwards and see if it shows a connection, then try browsing
If that doesn't work, re-install the network device driver with the network wizard

I hope you have rebooted both the router and after, puppy PC??

HTH
