I successfully manged to get a USB-Ethernet Dongle working on my note 2.
However I am experiencing a strange issue:
When I had first set up the ethernet functionality, everything was working fine.
(Most apps could Not access the internet though, but some such as browser or vlc-player could).
Some days passed by during which I did not use the ethernet functionality but accessed several wifi networks
Now the issue:
if I want to use ethernet at my home network again everything seems fine first.
I can connect via ethernet, retrieve an ip adress using "dhcpcd eth0" and even issue commands like "traceroute www .google. de"
The output of "ip addr show" and "ip route show" also indicates that eth0 interface was assigned a ip-adress and also the correct default gateway has been defined
however if I want to use the browser to browse the web no connection can be established...
same with VLC-Player.
so network commands via terminal work but there's no internet connection within apps.
The strange thing is:
if I now access my home network via wifi first, turn wifi off and use ethernet again everything works as expected (especially the browser is working again..?!)
I'm wondering what I'm missing here:
Do I miss something during setting up the ethernet interface?
note that I also set the "net.dns1" and "net.dns2" property for primary and secondary DNS Server...
But why is ethernet only working if I firstly connect to the same network via wifi?
I assume that while connecting to the network via wifi some additional properties are set.
I'd very appreciate any explanation/suggestion on this matter.
thanks in advance!
