    NUC D54250WYK no network link


      I have Intel NUC D54250WYK. I have installed Redhat and Fedora but I cannot get the network communication establish.

      Fedora shows the following for "lspci -vv | grep -i ether" :


      shows the chips set as 'I218-V [8086:1559]


      In the past I have installed Linux, RHEL on several NUCs. I have always configured BIOS for Legacy mode so that I can kickstart.

      In this case since I am having trouble I used "e1000e-3.3.6.tar.gz", I tested installing from a Live CD/USB.


      I also downloaded the - driver from - Download Intel® Network Adapter Driver for PCIe* Intel® Gigabit Ethernet Network Connections Under Linux*

      But nothing is working.


      During power up I can see the link Green LED on the interface.

      Then when I boot into the OS, I loose the link light.

      This gives me an indication the driver is not working.


      I appreciate if someone can give me a great sense of direction.
