Thank you.. this was annoying me no end, post #6 was very helpful, especially me being relatively new to ubuntu and linux in general. Why on earth it managed to save everything else on upgrading from 16.04 to 16.10 but ethernet, is bordering on stupidity. If I hadn't found this fix I would probably have ended up doing a fresh install in the hopes that I would be able to use ethernet again, I mean wifi is actually OK for me, but when I need to transfer files to my server/NAS I don't want to be using wifi instead of cat6 Gigabit cable.
Anyway, won't go on, but thank you #6 (buo-ren-lin) for the save, appreciate it :)
