saucy botching network configuration

Asked by gregrwm on 2013-10-08

saucy network configuration is behaving strangely. i've installed saucy via netboot, selecting openssh-server only. saucy netboot found and used my cable modem just fine, but the network configuration it installed does not find my cable modem. precise works fine, so i brought forward /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules from precise. surprisingly, this didn't work. what do i need to do?

under precise, which works:

Precise works fine as it is LTS and solid. Saucy is having issues as it is NOT ready and NOT stable. What did you expect!?

I suggest you report a bug and/or use Precise if you need an OS that works.
