Networking :: VIA Rhine Ethernet Card Under Slackware 13.1 Won't Work
Mar 2, 2011
I have had some problems with a SATA DVD drive under installation of Slackware 12.2, [URL] So i tried 13.1 instead. But now the ethernet card is not working Its a VIA Rhine card, and it was recognized just fine under 12.2 The following command did nothing: Code: ifconfig eth0 up I am getting no errors. I have also tried using netconfig, no luck there either.
By upgrading to latest kernel(2.6.31-22) the card was recognized but it still doesn't quite work. I'm not that good at this but I'll paste some stuff that I think is related to solving a problem such as this.
I have a Dell WLAN 1397 Half Minicard, 802.11 b/g card in my laptop, and I can't seem to get ubuntu to work with it. I tried this method:
1. Synaptic Pack Manager 2. Check "Install from Boot Disc" 3. Reload 4. Install and apply bcmwl-kernel-source 5. Reboot
This didn't work for me, so I tried entering sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source and that also didn't work. Another thing I tried is formatting my Ubuntu partition and reinstalling, and retrying both of those methods. The ethernet port does work, however.
I am really interested to configure my old desktop with Slackware 12 as a router. But unfortunately I did not found any other ethernet card (second) as Realtek 8029. (I need two ethernet cards according to the howto [URL]) It is possible to get up and running this card? I was googling a lot. I tried to use the ne2k-pci module. It seems that it was loaded successfully, but I cannot see my interface (eth1) with ifconfig.
I have an HP Pavillion Elite HPE computer I just got for a server. It has an internal gigabyte on the mother board and I put in one pci express trendnet teg-ectx eternet card in before installing. It is using the realtek 8169 chip. I had the local network on this card and the pubic static ip on the built in ethernet port eth0. After the intstall of debian 5.07 32 bit I couldn't get the eth0 pubic access to work. I can't get into the server with sftp or ssh and openssh has been installed and I can get into it locally on the local network.
I then installed a second ethernet card the same as the local network card. Now the pubic is on the which is eth1 and the local is eth2. I can ping out to [URL] but I can't get into the server on the eth1 using ssh and I have a iptables firewall and I turned it off and I stll can't get in. I am thinking that the eth1 card I added after the install doesn't have the driver or something. nothing is hooked up to eth0 right now.
I just installed Fedora 10 on a brand new machine with an on-board nvidia MCP73 ethernet card. Now, when I initially boot up the box after installation, the card comes up and gets a DHCP address just fine. When I go to edit the network settings (change to static) the NIC dies. I don't think I have the proper driver. Does anyone know a) where to get the driver and b) how I can install it?
This is my first attempt switching to Ubuntu from Windows, and I am having some trouble getting the on-board ethernet to work in Ubuntu 9.1. I have a MSI KM2M Combo-L VIA KM266 and VT8235 Chipset which uses the Rhine II chipset. I am trying to use the onboard ethernet, however it does not connect to the network after installing Ubuntu, although the driver appears to have been automatically installed. I also tried this with several other network cards (Intel, Dlink, Netgear) with various chipsets, but none seem to work.
Our network Netgear switch/router has DCHP enabled, and all of the Windows computers connect just fine. This is true even when we plug another computer into the ethernet cable serving the Ubuntu computer. When I manually configure the IP address, it shows the network connection as connected, but it is unable to ping and/or connect to the internet (except for localhost and the assigned IP address). I used 192.168.11 as the IP, 255.255.255.0 as the netmask, and 192.168.1.1 as the gateway. Below are several commands, that I've run to provide some additional information (using auto eth1).
I booted ubuntu and the included drivers worked beautifully for my Atheros AR8131 PCI Ethernet card on my laptop. I have an OSX Snow Leopard dual boot setup and my Ethernet card does not work. I was wondering if, because OSX is loosely linux based, the network drivers could somehow be loaded into my Snow Leopard install.
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).
I own a D-Link DI-604 wired router and I've started getting some issues after Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 upgrade(Ubuntu 9.04 used to work OK!). The problem is that Ubuntu recognizes all my ethernet cards (see below), but I can only connect to the internet through eth1 not eth0 (which is my Windows default). If I try to plug the cable in eth0 nothing happens (at least not in Ubuntu 10.04 and 9.10).
I have just installed a generic PCI ethernet card into a fairly low powered system (Celeron 766MHZ, 512mb Ram, 40 Gb HDD, Generic sound and video). The card came with no drivers. I have since installed Ubuntu 9.10, and up to a point everything is fine and looks great. However when I connect an ethernet cable up to the PCI card (in the hope of connecting with the Internet), nothing happens. I am thinking that I need Ubuntu drivers for the PCI card ? or does Ubuntu 9.10 come with drivers and I need to go into the 'engine room' to sort it all out ?
I've had way too many problems with my network card under linux and I'm looking to buy a new one because the money is worth the lack of headaches. My project: I'm breathing new life into my old, old pentium 4 computer by running Kubuntu Server on it and using it as a little samba filedump.
So I don't want to spend a lot on an ethernet card -- this computer is no prize. I just want the cheapest, most out-of-the-box-compatible-with-no-configuration card I can buy.
I started on Newegg (sorted by price: [URL]....CE&PageSize=20 ), and I've heard that cards based on the RealTek 8129/8139 chip may be compatible/cheap but I can't seem to find out ahead of time what chip the cards are based on.
I've set up 10.04 Server so that I could install directly to a command line, due to the fact that Desktop was crashing during the install every time. The installation goes fine, except for the networking portion. DHCP fails every time I try it. So I set up a static IP as an alternative. Once installation completes, none of the network-oriented tools (ping, telnet) work. I've tried pinging my router and I get 'Destination Host Unknown'. This is true if I change to a DHCP oriented setup as well.
The router sees that the machine is there, as indicated by the slowly blinking connection light meaning that it's hooked up to *something* but there's no activity. Also, networking did work within Windows before I nuked it, so I know it has the ability to operate correctly. I'm at a loss, mostly due to my own newness and ignorance of how to start tackling this within this environment.
I have a very strange problem with my Linux Router/Firewall machine where i keep losing my connection on the ethernet card.
I have installed a Debian 4 distro on a PC with 2 nics to create a router/firewall machine. On nic-1 i have connected the ADSL modem and on nic-2 a laptop for testing.
What i want is to build a DMZ with public IP addresses assigned to the servers in DMZ.
We have a total of 16 Public IP's assigned to the ADSL modem from our ISP configured in routering mode. Unfortunately our new ISP does not support Bridge mode, otherwise i would not have this problem. (we had modem in bridge mode working fine with our old ISP, but they have stopped so we were forced to switch to another ISP. eth1 and eth2 both have public IP addresses from the modem set hardcoded in the /etc/network/interfaces on Linux pc and on my testlaptop in the DMZ (server-1) i have set another public IP (they all fall in the same network range) I have enabled IP forwarding on Linux router/firewall and for testing the firewall is set to allow all traffic.
When i try to ping the testlaptop in my DMZ from a remote machine outside in our datacenter i get no reply.
However when i run the following command: ip addr add xx.xx.xx.xx dev eth1 to assign the public IP i have chosen for the laptop to the inner nic (eth2) and then try to ping the testlaptop again from the remote machine it still does not reply ... but (and here is the most bizar thing)...
When i then run the following command: ip addr del xx.xx.xx.xx dev eth1 (where xx.xx.xx.xx is the ip of the testlaptop) and try to ping again from the remote machine then it seems to be working fine ... however only for a short time because then connection is lost somehow.
I am using DELL VOSTRO 1510 laptop , it has realtek r8169 ethernet card, i installed RHEL 5 in my laptop , i checked for the driver cd provided by DELL, they given one source rpm and two other rpm for ethernet card, i tried to install them through "rpm -ivh (path)/realtek-r8169 (full name).rpm " but it asking about dependency . i tried it by using yum also but still its not working.
also i tried to create binary rpm through source rpm, but it only generating spec not binary rpm, when i am using " rpmbuilt -ba (spec file) " its showing command not found error. RHEL5 have ethernet driver for realtek-8129 in their list but not for realtek-8169, i checked it in system-config-network window, now what to do, how do i install this rpm , i want to access net through RHEL 5.
I recently installed CentOS on a really old computer and while most things are running well, I am unable to connect to the internet. Using a Damn Small Linux live CD I am able to connect just fine and was able to see that that 'hp100' was being used as the netcard driver. When I tried to set up the network card using that adapter (HP10/100VG ....) it gives me the following error code...
so, when i first got my laptop it came with vista and the ethernet worked fine, then when I decided to install Karmic about 9 months ago it still worked fine. After a while the update for lucid came out so I upgraded to that and then the ethernet started getting buggy. It would only work about half the time that i wanted it too and the other half of the time it would just stare at me and not move anywhere. So along with a couple other bugs I decided to format my harddrive and downgrade back to karmic and await the 10.10 release. unfortunatly my ethernet woes carried with me and they still would only show up on occasion. then about half way through my time with karmic round 2 it stopped altogether, and with the upgrade back to lucid it hasn't seemed to solve itself.
I ran through ifconfig -a, lspci and sudo ifup -a but they all tell me that the device doesn't exist.
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'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?
