CentOS 5 Networking :: Ethernet Driver - Atheros (on Board) Is Not Shown In Network Ifconfig
Jul 7, 2011
I have installed CentOS. I have two ethernet card (one onboard and one PCI). I am able to set ip for realtek ethernet card and my atheros(on board) is not shown in network ifconfig shows only one ethernet card (PCI) hen i gave the command lspci i got the following output
I have an ASUS P5Q PRO motherboard with an integrated Atheros AR8121/AR8113 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Adapter.I installed Ubuntu 10.04 "Lucid" 64bit Kernel version 184.108.40.206 I have read that the driver isn't in the kernel, but there's a strange thing :
First if I try to run lspci from command line it doesn't reports Atheros Ethernet Controller.
Second If I try to run lshw -C network from command line it doesn't reports Atheros Ethernet Controller.
Third if I run ifconfig it only returns my loopback address.
Can I suppose that my Ethernet Intel Gigabit Controller is broken or that Atheros driver is missing?
I have CentOS 5.5 and I can't install the driver for the Atheros AR5006X Wireless.The current state of my CentOS is:
*) If I run lspci, I get 03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01) (wrong model) *) If I go to System->Administration->Network, I see the wlan0 device with xlan0 name, but if I tried to active I get: (and the same when the system is rebooting)
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06):SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument. Determining IP information for wlan0...
Centos el5xen x86_64 in a company network, novell-netware, Static IP I have several issues with the Xen network configuration. This configuration worked before, and was maded by a other personn with a higher level in centos and network . I'm trying to re-install xen in bridging mode.
1) The dom0 ping in the company network, but can't acess to the Internet.
I de-activated firewall, iptables and SE-Linux for the test.
the ifconfig-a command return eth0 lo sit0 (IPV6 encapsuled in IPV4) vif0 vnet0 but no Peth0 Physical device
I have a PCCHIPS P47G motherboard, with a Atheros AR8112 ethernet interface (took me a while to even find that out!). I can not find a driver for that interface! I've Googled around for drivers and come up with nothing.
I'm trying to find a driver for my wireless card (Atheros AR928X) and I think it's ath9k what I need. As far as I know there isn't a linux driver for it, so I installed ndiswrapper to use a windows driver instead. The problem is that when I type modprobe ndiswrapper I get "bash: modprobe: command not found" (even as root). I know I'm missing something about modprobe, but I can't find any help on google. Anyway, I installed ndisgtk next, because I thought it would be easier, but when I go to System> Administration> Windows Wireless Drivers I get a message "Unknown error".Do you have any ideas on how I'll make ndiswrapper work?
I tried to compile Atheros AR8152 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller driver for fedora 13 64 bit kernel version is 220.127.116.11-56.fc13.x86_64. I have installed kernel source , kernel header and necessary all things to compile it. (linux-firmware-20100806-4.fc13.noarch also installed). I tried AR81Family-linux-v18.104.22.168 source from Atheros web site.
But when I try to make it it give following error. Code: Makefile:173: *** *** Aborting the build. *** This driver is not supported on kernel versions older than 2.4.0. Stop. It is not compiling issue because I compiled and installed broadcom wireless driver. Makefile is attached here (renamed as Makefile.txt -> Makefile)
I have installed CentOS 5.3 on my PC which has an Atheros AR8121/8113/8114 Gigabit Ethernet. Unfortunately 5.3 has no drivers for this LAN Card. I searched the Google for drivers but was unable to find any. Does the 5.4 has them? If yes then how can i upgrade it to 5.4 without Network connectivity?
i have a centos 5 and i cant access to the LAN or Internet because , i cant create a network connection , i try to say My Ethernet dont appears,and i cant add any connections.i id thisTerminal:Quote:sudo iwconfig
I recently switched from Windows XP to a clean install Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10 but it seems to be quite a problem to get the wifi up and running. In Windows the nearby network all appeared in network connections but the same section in Ubuntu is empty. So I decided to go with the ndiswrapper guide to solve the problem with an unclaimed driver. After an entire day messing with my computer I'm still not close... Below follows excerpts taken from the Ndiswrapper guide with posted results from my computer. "ndiswrapper won't work until it thinks that your Windows drivers have been properly installed and that they are the appropriate ones for your wireless card. You can run the command: ndiswrapper -l"
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release. WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future release. net5211 : driver installed device (168C:0013) present (alternate driver: ath5k)
So I've posted the result the name of my wireless card below: lspci -nn
00:00.0 Host bridge : VIA Technologies, Inc. CN333/CN400/PM880 Host Bridge [1106:0259] 00:00.1 Host bridge : VIA Technologies, Inc. CN333/CN400/PM880 Host Bridge [1106:1259]
It seems like the network is disabled or unclaimed or both. What to do? I'm stuck after spending an entire day trying to install the wifi. I had no problems in Windows XP but it seems to be quite impossible in Ubuntu.
I've just set up a PC with CentOS 5.3 runing on near identical hardware to an existing 5.2 machine. Motherboard is Asus M2A-VM which I discover by chance generally works very well with CentOS. Ethernet is on board Nvidia.The older machine just did run gigabit speed without any intervention at all, rather to my surprise. The newer machine insists on running at 100 Mbit which is annoying as it is connected to a NAS through a gigabit dumb switch.
The obvious difference between the two is that ethtool on the older machine says that supported ports are TP, and so the port is TP. Whereas the newer machine says that supported ports are TP or MII and insists on running MII. I cannot change this with ethtool -s eth0 port tp. Perhaps not too surprisingly, mii-tool says that the supported speeds range up to 100 Mbit.
I am a newbie who's having trouble installing drivers for Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller.
I already have the drivers from my motherboard vendor, its just that i cant get them to run on my machine. I am running CentOS 5.5.....On the Sytem>Administration>Hardware (Device Manager) I can see the device listed. I am uploading the files for anyone who needs them. I know i need to run an rpmbuild, but i get errors when i try it..... also, i've tried to run atl1.rpm from ElRepo with no luck, i get an error saying Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo:
I changed a mainboard so the network card is RTL8111/8168B Gigabit now. By "ifconfig -a", there is only io, no eth0.
I got a driver r8168.ko from: [URL]
After I insert the r8168.ko, there is eth0. Run "/etc/init.d/network restart", it reports "Determing IP information for eth0... failed; no link present, Check Cable", and I noticed the lights of network card and runter are all off. I can use "ifconfig eth0" now but it cannot connect to other machine.
It's Gigabit card and my runter is 10/100M. I tried "#insmod r8168 speed=100 duplex=1 autoneg=1" and "#insmod r8168 speed=100 duplex=0 autoneg=1", it can not get IP by DHCP either. I also build the .ko from Realteck source code, the behavior is the same.
if I need to do other configurations?
My CentOS is CentOS5, 2.6.18-8.el5 #1 SMP.

I'm running an ubuntu maverick server, and I'm having a slight problem with networking. I've only got one ethernet line running into my room, and I've got loads of computers. The server has 2 ethernet ports, one integrated into the motherboard, one on a PCI card that I took from my old server. The on board ethernet never worked on my old server- but I only tried it out post-install, it was hooked up to the card during install (For the record, networking on linux has *never* worked for me if I installed then plugged in the networking stuff after the fact). So I just used the card instead. Transferred the hard drive into a new machine, and lo and behold, it would only work after I transferred in the card from the old one. What I wanted to set up is a basic NAT system, where the network connection is routed through from my server to my main desktop- but when I run ifconfig, my card is not detected, just lo and eth0. How can I fix this?
I realise there are a few threads of issues with the AR8152 chipset and Ubuntu 11.04, however, my issue does not appear to be the same as others, nor does there appear to be a consistent solution yet. My ethernet worked fine in Ubuntu 10.10, but after upgrading to 11.04, I experience the errors I am about to explain. I also experience these when booting off a Ubuntu 11.04 Live CD, so it's not just the upgrade the caused the issues. The issue is, if I turn on my system without the ethernet cable plugged in, and then plug the ethernet cable in once I've logged into Ubuntu, the system will not detect it, at all. No amount of network manager of dhclient eth0 will get it to function, however, the device itself still appears in the system. If I turn the system on with the ethernet plugged in, however, it will get an IP address and function correctly. I tried to download the drivers from Atheros and build them, but for whatever reason it complained about me not having autoconf.h or automake.h (can't remember which), despite having build-essentials and linux-headers-generic installed.
I recently installed a new CPU and motherboard in my Media Server, but the ethernet port isn't showing up under ifconfig. Is there any way to install additional drivers? EDIT: The model is Realtek RTL8111/8160B.
I'm trying to find out what is the difference between wifi0 and ath0 (atheros wifi card) in terms of packet counters shown in proc/net/dev pseudofile. The fact is that wifi0 and ath0 packet counters are different. I've read that wifi0 refers to the physical device and ath0 refers to virtual device over wifi0, so, as far as I know, packets counters in both devices should be the same, isn't it? Another annoying question for me is that ath0 doesn't show any erroneous packets, while wifi0 does.
I just installed Slackware 13.1 on my new Toshiba satellite c650 and my ethernet device isn't working. I have tried to compile the driver provided by atheros but being a newbie i failed. I understand that there's a driver included in the kernel, so why isn't it loading? The info center list my PCI LAN card as "attansic corp device 2060".
I have an absolutely bizarre hardware issue (concerning the Atheros AR8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller) that has been giving me quite a bit of grief for a while, and having completely hit a wall on this one, I'm a reasonably-experienced Linux user of several years, and have been running Ubuntu 9.10 on an Acer AOD250 netbook for several months out. I know that this model has wireless issues out-of-the-box (easily fixed), but it did not have any noticeable ethernet issues. That is, until I attempted an installation of Arch Linux.
During the Arch Linux installation, the ethernet card was initially detected, but unable to be used (because of a bad module in the kernel released with the installer). As I didn't know the fix for this at the time, I decided to reinstall Ubuntu 9.10. This time, however, the system failed to recognize the wired ethernet whatsoever. Instead, the external activity lights for the port (green and orange) are ALWAYS on, yet the device doesn't function.
I have done a successful install of the latest drivers directly from Atheros for the device and have them automatically loading with the kernel during boot, but as the device isn't recognized, the drivers aren't doing any good. Relevant information:
have a toshiba satellite L745 running Lucid Lynx I need drivers for the Atheros AR8151 ethernet card. Every post I have read on installing the driver give links to Atheros but they are all broken. Does anybody know where I can download driver?
I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 uname -r 2.6.28-11-generic
Checked cable/network with 386Box running Ubuntu 8.04 all OK. Could not get Realtek 8168 on mother board to work on Gigabyte H55M-S2H motherboard. I tried to install r8168 driver but no luck ... so I bought another Linux compatible card which turned out to be a RTL8139c (eth1) and the driver I am using on this is card is 8139too.
My preference would be to get the motherboard ethernet working but perhaps the card may be easier to get working. Anyway after searching the net for ideas and trying different things I've just about given up. I have reinstalled Ubuntu today so eth0 is back to using the r8169 driver. I'm no expert so my attempts at following other recipies have so far failed. From what I have read the 8139too driver should have worked with the RTL8139C chip so I have run out of ideas. I must be doing something wrong.
I have a brand new ASUS EEE PC 900HA with Ubuntu 9.10 installed on it. The wireless hasn't worked yet but the ethernet is fine. I've been browsing the forums for hours to find a fix but now I've installed/queried/removed so many things I'm totally confused.
lspci -v gives me this
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Attansic Technology Corp. Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller (rev b0) Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 8324 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 27
I am trying to clone a working Centos 5.4 system onto a new box with a ASUS P5KPL-CM motherboard. I have done so by plugging in a Realtec lan card - but can't get the motherboard lan working. Googling tells me the motherboard has a Atheros L1E lan chip - but I have installed several kmod drivers from ELREPO - but still can't get the on-board lan working. So far I have installed:
I have just installed these with yum - but no new hardware appears in the network gui dialogue. Am I missing some step here - or is there another driver I should be looking for.
I just reinstalled Ubuntu Lucid Lynx and an old problem has come back. For some reason I couldn't fix it even in my previous installation. The problem is the top gnome panel. See the photo below: As you can see, the network icon is not shown properly while the Me menu is being shown twice. I can't even restart or log out or shut down at this situation without pressing the keystroke to turn the power off.
