how to connect to wired internet with command line

Spread the love

I am trying to connect to a wired internet using the command line. I am using a USB type C hub, as this X360 Envy laptop has no ethernet port.
I can connect using the user interface.
Firstly, ifconfig has no “eth0” logical name, it is enx[deleted chars]211b
I can disconnect from the command line using “ipconfig enx[]211b down” , but “up” does not work. I have done automatically connect in the settings , but that also does not work, nor does it actually connect automatically on reboot or replugging in the hub with the wired connection. /etc/network/interfaces is
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
and I tried adding in
auto enx[]211b
and auto eth0, to no avail.
I need to do this as I got the “oops something went wrong” on dist-upgrade and the desktop is unusable and I need to do commands with the internet access from the terminal. the Live USB stick will not give any option for an update , alongside or overwrite or do something else are the only options there, and there is no way I can discover to do an dist-update from the desktop using the 20.04 Live USB stick,.
