Linux-losing connection

Fresh Linux install.
Program up and running but…
Before I say anything else I’d just like to clarify that we have the exact same model of laptop running Win10 without issue.
Followed instructions, connects to ROV.
After a minute or two it loses connection. Access network settings on laptop, select the wired connection again and it connects. Another minute and it drops out again.

Any ideas?

Sounds like something is changing your network settings.

Can you check the output of ip addr when the connection drops?

Do you have additional ethernet devices on the same network?

Hi William,
Thanks for the response but i’ve run into other issues.
We fitted a USB 3.o to Gigabit network adaptor with built-in-2-port USB hub. Linux software is available and i’ve downloaded.
There’s a ‘Makefile’ a ‘compatibility.h’ file, a ‘50-usb-realtek-net.rules’ file and a ‘r8152.c’ file. Not sure how to proceed with that. It works a charm on the windows machine, bugger

Hi @milkybar,

Unfortunately I can’t help you with that. In my experience it is easier to just find another adapter with proper support already in Linux.
