Debian 9 on PowerEdge R610 Server


Just installed Debian 9 on my first server. (PowerEdge R610)

However, I am not having any success getting it to connect to the internet.
From the looks of it. I can see that it's recognizing the interfaces as I'm able to select them using the network manager.
But, once plugged in, no connection is established. :( Not even a prompt or anything.

I tried to bring the eno1 interaface up via the terminal (ifup command)
But no luck,

Terminal returned something along the lines of
"Interface eno1 not recognized"



Any and all help is appreciated.

Note: I'm used to kali linux and this OS a new to me.

That's odd. It gives you the mac address of an interface isn't recognized. Just for crap and giggles, make sure that the ethernet cable is plugged in and you have connectivity lights.

What does 'ip link' say?


You may need to install some non-free firmware to get the network cards working.


Debian used to be unable to restart the network; I don´t know if that changed.


Since you venture to a new distribution anyway, you may want to try Centos.  I think that´ll probably work right out of the box.

You'll probably need the drivers for your Ethernet controller.

Interested in computer architecture? Still in middle or high school? P.M. me!


I love computer hardware and feel free to ask me anything about that (or phones). I especially like SSDs. But please do not ask me anything about Networking, programming, command line stuff, or any relatively hard software stuff. I know next to nothing about that.
