I've recently installed Manjaro on my laptop. I have on a dual-boot setup with Windows 10 as my second system.
When the system was first installed the wi-fi wasn't working but I've managed to fix it by installing this driver.
Everything worked fine until I rebooted into Windows and then back into Manjaro.
Now the ethernet isn't working, I've tried probably all the solutions I could find:
- Reinstalling the driver
- Compiling and installing the driver manually from this repo
- I fiddled with wake-on-lan in Windows settings.
- I un-blacklisted r8169 and replaced r8168 with it - what happens then is that the interface is seemingly up but can't establish a connection.
A possible lead on how to solve this is that after executing:
> sudo modprobe -r r8168 > sudo modprobe r8168
The ethernet interface is seemingly up for a few seconds but the goes back to being down.
