    Answer it

    Hi there,

    I'm using linux mint right now, and wanted to use a usb ethernet adapter rather than the default-build-in-ethernet-card, but seems cannot get it to work.


    I know that somebody tried to ask similar questions before,but following the answers of those post, I cannot have the problem solved.


    Aiming to disable the default interface and add the usb one,I've put lines below to /etc/network/interfaces already


    iface eno1 inet manual


    auto eth0 (or eth1,or exnXXXXXXXXXX--(mac address))
    allow-hotplug eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp


    and restarted networkmanager by

    sudo systemctl restart network-manager.service


    but it's still not working,


    is there anything wrong with the lines above?


    is it somewhere else I need to config, but didn't do?


    really like to know your advice and thank you very much.


    (BTW, there is no hardware or driver problem)
