Can not connect to wired DHCP network

OK, I booted q4os-2.4-x64.r9.iso, and after 10 seconds I already discovered a bug, which really surprised and disappointed me. sad
In short, Live system completely refused to connect to simple wired DHCP network!

Linux Mint, System rescue CD, Puppy Linux connects without any problems, but Q4OS refuses.... I don`t know, maybe it`s because I have donated only 20$....
Anyway, this bug makes Q4OS unusable for me now...

Re: Can not connect to wired DHCP network

We are not able to reproduce this, Q4OS can connect fine to a wired DHCP server. So we would guess a hardware dependent issue. We would need to get more info to investigate on this, please provide output of following commands:
$ ip a
$ sudo ifconfig
You could also try to connect using 'nmtui' utility, just run in terminal:
$ nmtui

Re: Can not connect to wired DHCP network

The network device looks good, are you using ipv6 or ipv4 dhcp server ?

Please provide systemd debug info, run in terminal:
$ sudo journalctl | gzip > /tmp/journal.gz
and send generated '/tmp/journal.gz' file via e-mail "support@q4os.org" or attach it here to analyze. You can add attachment by 'post reply -> choose file'

Re: Can not connect to wired DHCP network

Sorry for delay, but network suddenly started to work! I don`t know why, I did nothing, just restarted my router. Checked several times, restarted router again, and now network works very well. I think problem solved, sorry for posting...
No, unfortunately it happened again...

Re: Can not connect to wired DHCP network

It happened again! Again Q4OS 2.4 Live can not connect to wired DHCP network. Router restart did not helped now...
I have IPv4 DHCP server.

Re: Can not connect to wired DHCP network

The journal log looks like the dhcp server is not responding to the client's request for dynamic IP. There is no reason available, just like the DHCP server would be offline. We are not able to reproduce such behavior using a standard DHCP server configuration. It would be helpful to attach journal from another system, for ex Mint, that successfully connects, for comparison.

Anyone else noticed similar issue ?

Re: Can not connect to wired DHCP network

We can see from the logs, that Mint uses "dhclient" external utility to get IP address, while Q4OS uses internal network manager dhcp client. That's the difference. We guess, the internal DHCP client could suffer from some kind of a specific bug, that breaks dhcp negotiation with your router. Unfortunately, we are not able to reproduce the issue at the moment. If anyone else noticed similar issue, reporting here would be appreciated. Anyway, we will continue to try reproduce this issue some way, and investigate it as best as possible.

@Rademes
The issue could be fixed within the new Q4OS 2.5 live media just released. A feedback would be appreciated, if you will be trying that.

Re: Can not connect to wired DHCP network

I had the similar issue with network connection, however it was my wireless connection. In order to re-connect after a restart I had to reboot my router every time.
I could not find a way to rectify this issue so, unfortunately I left with no choice but to move away from Q4OS and install another linux system that I wouldn't have this issue with.

Re: Can not connect to wired DHCP network

I use wireless all the time and haven't had any problems so far (I hope I'm not tempting fate here) but was wondering if you have a 5Ghz router or just 2.4Ghz?

I am currently using a 2.4Ghz model that supports b/g/n but have got a newer one which has both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz that support a/b/g/n/ac and will be setting it up sometime this week and was wondering if this might cause me some issues. Obviously if I encounter a problem I will post here, but wondered if this could be part of this problem.

I have tested Q4OS 2.5 recently. Looks like this issue was fixed. I will continue to test.
