I've just installed F13 on Acer Aspire 5551G with has Broadcom BCM57780 ethernet card. And F13 does not recognize this card: in System > Administration > Network Devices tab is empty (but in Hardware tab the card is listed). So, I can't connect to the Internet
So far I've found: 1) Related bug for F11. 2) Related thread for F12.
I've tried all possible solutions mentioned in both the bug and the thread, but nothing could convince my F13 to like the ethernet card.
I am attempting to install centos5 x86_64 on to an HP Compaq 6820s laptop.It appears the installation has gone ok but I have a big problem in that the centos installation knows nothing about the hardware on the laptop. i.e. it does not recognise the eth0 ethernet card.this means that I have no way of assigning an IP address to the laptop which means that it cannot join the network or the internet.how do you go about getting the correct drivers for the hardware that you are using?
I am a rookie to both Debian and Linux. There is a need of Debian so I just started my experience with the Linux system.
I have installed the Debian squeeze testing version and since when I installed the system it didn't recognize my ethernet card, I could only install what is in the installation CD1. Now I have a nice looking Debian system but very simple with a lot of necessary packages or whatever missing (I don't even have the update manager). Is there some way that I could launch an automatic installation of content in the rest CDs from internet?
The Network manager didn't recognize my eth0 device as a maned device.In shell I can use my eth0 but not by Gnome Network Manager.My device is nVidia Corporation MCP67 Ethernet [10de:054c] (rev a2) and I'm running a Fedora 11. On previous version like, Fedora 10 an 9 this board was managed normally by network manager.Anyone already set up this board on Network Manager ?My Notebook is a HP dv2736us and I'm using a Fedora 11 64bits.
If I uncheck and recheck "Enable Networking" in the Network Manager Applet 0.7.996 I would expect the wired network to disconnect (which it does) and reconnect (which it does NOT). So I tried sudo ifdown eth0 and got
Ignoring unknown interface eth0=eth0.
ifconfig tells me
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:25:64:e8:18:2c inet addr:192.168.0.112 Bcast:192.168.0.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 inet6 addr: fe80::225:64ff:fee8:182c/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
so I am at a loss. How do I stop and restart the network interface short of rebooting the machine?
i am having issues with networking on a certain liveCD.all ubuntu installs ive done on this machine im sure work fine, but i may have had issues with older backtrack versions.My issue is no networking on boot of SamuraiWTF, for those unfamiliar its based on ubuntu 9.04 There is nothing except lo loopback when i run 'ifconfig', and there is nothing in /etc/network/interfaces for eth0 either.
lspci shows a Broadcom driver, but the same command shows the model number etc on a newer ubuntu install on the same machine. This is:
Broadcom NetLink BCM57780
I have the latest .tar.gz of the tg3 drivers suggested by Broadcom, but im lost on how to install them.
------------------------------------------------------- EDIT: it seems to be an issue with earlier kernels, i installed 2.6.35 and it worked but the kernel isnt mean for 9.04 i dont think, and now theres issues with the nvidia card
I have 2 LAN ports. one from the motherboard (on board) and the other from a lan card i bought a few days back. one is use for browsing the net, the other for a media player.
problem is i cant connect to both the eth0 and eth1 at the same time. i have to disconnect one of them to connect to the other. and this really gets irritating as it doesnt always work as flawlessly as it should. what am i doing wrong?
I have several systems experiencing this issue, but the "worst case" system at the moment is a system where there are 2 dual-port PCI-X e1000 cards, and two on-board e1000e PCI-express card.What happens is maddening. If the /etc/sysconfig/hwconf is removed, and kudzu is not run, and the 6 interfaces each have a corresponding script:
Now what happens defies explanation. The only way I can be sure to make the e1000e first-listed-in-pci-order e1000e device always eth0 is to remake the initrd and add e1000e to the initrd.If I do not do that, eth0 might be the onboard night, it can also be the first port on either of the dual port cards.So eth0, eth2 and eth4 all take turns being eth0. This was not an issue in the EL-5.1 timeframe. This is certainly new to the EL-5.2 timeframe and thus far is not possible to control because the system does not load eth0's driver alias in order, and the enumeration of the PCI devices causes what seems to be random labeling of the first interface.
This is a particular problem in that identical hardware systems will come up with different eth0 interfaces , and on a single system, without the /etc/sysconfig/hwconf (which calls "eth0" something different from what was originally in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 HWADDR directive).I need as little auto-magic as possible, I can live with PCI-bus order and driver load order is the order ethernet devices appear in, I cannot use the software in a state where what is "eth0" is randomly determined and the only way I can nail it down is to run kudzu, generate a hwconf AND brand the network interfaces in the network-scripts with HWADDR. I've been using EL since 6.2 and this is the first time I've ever encountered a situation where the enumeration rules (which are ancient at this point) over-ridden by something.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): EL-5.2 series.The random enumeration of PCI devices and the subsequent assigning of eth0 to a random NIC is not on every reboot, and does not seem tied to a power off scenario vs a simple reset or warm reboot. Over the course of 0 reboots , eth0 should have moved between 2-3 times.Packages that seem relevant.
I have a problem with recognising my mobile phone's memory card in Ubuntu 9.10. When I plug the phone in it starts the mass storage mode, but nothing happens in the PC. I suspect that I may have deleted phone's icon from the desktop, and I don't know how to bring it back. Also the memory card doesn't appear anywhere: nor in the Places tab, nor in Media folder.The phone is Samsung U900 Soul.
So the only experience I have with Linux is all from Ubuntu, and I just spontaneously decided that I needed a change...two days later my triple boot Macbook Pro got slimmed down to a dual boot OSX/OpenSUSE 11.2 machine. But there are some general problems, and I have absolutely no idea how to solve them. First, wireless isn't recognized at all...there isn't even a space for wireless connections. Second, I haven't been able to get compiz to work yet, and I can only suspect that the system doesn't recognize my video card, or the driver isn't installed. Yet again, no idea how to fix this.
I install RHEL 5.1 on my system. But my Ethernet card is not detected. I found my Ethernet card is of "ATTANSIC Technology corp L1 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter(rev b0). I already downloaded the driver. Someone tell me step by step process, how to install this driver over RHEL 5.1.
i have installed openSUSE 11.2 on a dell dimension 2400. My Ethernet card wasn't working, so i am using a wireless interface, but it doesn't work either. It worked on a dell dimension 4400, but when it gets to the activate network my system freezes. Should i re-install my system, or should i post this under the hardware category.
Moving this to new topic, since it's no longer under wireless connectivity issues. [Noob Warning] I was having trouble getting Ubuntu to recognize my wireless card, as I have changed from the 3965 that came in my computer to the 4965, which added increased range and G band. Anyway, I read one of the threads on here, and this was the advice given:

Today I deleted Windows on my Dell Latitude D610 and instead installed Ubuntu 10.04 on it (I had a cd with 10.04 on it from when I installed it on my desktop a year ago). Everything runs fine except I can't get the wifi to work, and it won't recognize the driver either, actually it doesn't recognize any drivers.
i have installed centos 5.1 but it won't recognize 2nd nic card (eth1). i was unable to install the driver supplied by the cd. i am using intellinet gigabite pci network card. the network card recognize by centos 5.3 but i need to use centos 5.1. i also tried another intel gigabite adopter but it also won't recognize by centos 5.1.
I run an Ubuntu Server in a Virtualbox environment. Setup works fine. In virtualbox, I accidentally hit a button that generates and assigns a new mac address for the network adapter. Since then the machine does not bring eth0 up. I tried the following ifconfig eth0 down; ifconfig eth0 hw ether macaddress; ifconfig eth0 up. Then restarted networking.
I've been racking my brains over the past few days trying to figure out why my NIC card (network interface card) won't show up in the ifcfg-eth0 file.When I configure a new server (like this one) I always go to:/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and from there I usally see the name of my NIC's manufacturer's name and the hardware MAC address.Then it's only a simple process of entering the server's IP address, netmask and gateway and I'm up and running in no time...But not in this case! the ifcfg-eth0 file is completely blank! There's not ONE single line of config info in it... (?)The server runs an Intel core 2 duo (dual-core) CPU with 1 gig of RAM.
I've even re-formatted the drive and re-installed Centos 5.1 on the darn thing 3 times and it simply won't work.The server cannot resolve when I do a wgetIt also gives me a 'resolution problem in the named configuration'.What I don't understand is that the 2 small LEDs on the Cat 5 cable lights up and flash at what appear to be regular intervals here.
can one ethernet card support multiple ip address? but i think it's very dangerous. if bad guy take many ip, other people can't get ip. "does one ethernet card take multiple real ip or multiple virtual ip(one real ip)?" if it takes multiple real ip, then how it works good?..
I'm trying to set up a shared Internet connection that had been broken by a previous update, I believe. Eth0 is connected to the Internet, whereas eth2 should be the connection going to my Roku set-top box. Under the nm-applet icon, an entry exists for "Auto eth0" for the first card, but there is nothing under the second card except "disconnected". How do I make a connection entry under my eth2 card so that I can share my Internet connection with my Roku box?
My ISP finished some 'upgrades' on its infrastructure. The result is that I am having great difficulty in connecting to the internet.
I have 3 operating systems on my box - XP, Fedora 8 and Feota 12.
I connect using an ethernet card, using dhcp. In fedora 12, the ethernet card is controlled be networkmanager. After the ISP completed their upgrades, I was not able to connect. I tried to connect manually using
There was an error message -
I read the advice here: [url], and removed all but the important lines.
But even after that neither ifup eth0 or dhclient eth0 works.
In fedora 8, the ethernet card is activated by ifup eth0 in /etc/rc.local. I was able to connect on a couple of occasions, but that too stopped working. I tried both ifup eth0, dhclient eth0, and tried to use the gui( which fires the dhclient command), but none worked.
When I use windows, it takes about 2 minutes to get an ip (earlier it was immediate). Sometimes that doesnt work and I have to click on "repair" whereupon it starts working.
i did configure as it was advised on [URL]... but it didn't work. for eg I added eth0:1 and eth0:2 on /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ when i do ifconfig i can see only eth0:1, i cannot see eth0:2, eventhough i configured as it was on the tutorial
I am basically wanting to use my Ubuntu 10.10 computer as a router. Note: Before you say just get a router please note that I am poor/cheap. I have two ethernet connections and one wireless connection on my netbook. I want to share the internet connection that is going into one of the ethernet cards through the other ethernet card and the wireless card.
DSL-->1sr Eth --> 2nd Eth (currently works) DSL-->1sr Eth --> Wireless Card (Adhoc) <--(connects with limited connectivity AKA no internet)
The 2nd Ethernet card already has working internet, but when I connect to the Wireless card (through an Adhoc network), it cannot get an IP (I believe).
