Additional notes

(Please edit this page to include any of your own useful hints and tips for fixing this error.)

This error indicates that the network link is down. The network driver does not provide any further details.

It is normal for some network cards to take a few seconds to establish the link. You may therefore see messages such as:

  net0: 52:54:00:12:34:56 using rtl8139 on PCI00:03.0 (Ethernet) [open]
    [Link:down, TX:0 TXE:0 RX:0 RXE:0]
    [Link status: Down (]
  Waiting for link-up on net0... ok

These messages are not a cause for concern; this is expected behaviour for these network cards.

However, if you see a message such as

  Waiting for link-up on net0... failed: Down (

then you should check that the cable is plugged in, and that any link lights are on.
