I have been running backbox for about a year with no problems until last week when I installed a bunch of updates.  after reboot I had no network connectivity.  I checked ifconfig and only the loopback interface is listed.  both the wifi (intel 7260)and ethernet port (qualcom atheros ar8151)are not listed.  anyone else have the same problem or have an ideal of how to fix?  maybe this was solved last week....

Hi,

Are you sure that have something with updates? Did you have kernel updates in same time, I have on one of my pc's atheros and that didn't broth issue on my side.


Don't ask, read : http://wiki.backbox.org

This one worked for me after i updated kernel

cd backports-20151120
make clean
make defconfig-wifi
make
sudo make install

* I did this coz when i installed backbox for the first time there was no default network card. ( backported works for me )
