No ethernet connection on fresh install

Hello, this is my first ever time using Linux so please go easy on me.

I’ve just installed Manjaro on a fresh hard drive and I have no Internet connection.

I can see my adapter under hardware but there is nothing showing under connections.

When I boot into Windows it works fine.

My network card is an Intel 1219-v onboard an MSI Z390-A Pro mobo.

Any help appreciated!


That means you need the e1000e driver. You will need internet connection for that. To connect to internet from your Manjaro install you will have to use phone tethering.

Once that is done, install the headers for all your installed kernels

sudo pacman -S $(pacman -Qsq "^linux" | grep "^linux[0-9]*[-rt]*$" | awk '{print $1"-headers"}' ORS=' ')

and then you install the driver by running:

pamac build e1000e-dkms

Reboot the system and you should have ethernet working.


Thank you I will try this when home.

Why isn’t this driver installed by default? It’s a pretty common network adapter.
