I've just installed a new NUC 7i7BNH with ubuntu 18.04 (first installation of this NUC...) and the ethernet port hangs (drop packets ?) very often. I can see it when pinging the router where the NUC is connected to (loosing more than 35% packets over an hour). I've changed the cable/switch port but the issue is still here.
I think the bios is the last one :
Here is the information:
Intel desktop board : NUC7i7BNB
Bios version : nbkbl357.86A.0066.0724.1832
processor : Intel(r) code(tm) i7-7567U cpu @ 3.50GHz
installed with 32G RAM + 2 SSD (one sata, one M2)
Any idea ? Software ? Hardware ?
Thank you for joining the community.
I see that you are having problems with the Ethernet connection using Intel® NUC Kit NUC7i7BNH. Allow me to help with your inquiries.
I would suggest testing the Intel® NUC with a different operating system upon reviewing the supported operating system for the Intel® NUC is Windows® 10 64 bit (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005628/mini-pcs.html https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005628/mini-pcs.html). Also, you could try contacting the UBUNTU communities (https://www.ubuntu.com/community https://www.ubuntu.com/community) for a possible driver update
Hope his help.
Thanks for your answer.
Sorry but I had little time to test further.
I checked all the litterature I could find about about NUC and linux and did not find anything about some ethernet problem.
I also tried with wifi and everything works well.
I also have a NUC of a previous generation runnning on linux with no problem. So I'll check again the connection next week end.
