From what I could find the integrated ethernet port is an Intel gigabyte 82547EI which probably uses the e1000 module. I have no clue if your distro includes this module. You can try:
modprobe e1000

You can get it here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000/

hello. i am just starting to learn linux, with the linux for dummies book biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif and well i changed my mind after installing linux, to install windows 98, and so i tried, and it gave me some normal windows errors, and then i was like, hey i wanna install linux back on, but then when i did this time, it gave me some errors about bad configurations for my lan port on my mother board (VIA-KT600-A with integrated lan (i have no clue which brand, and i have the support cd, but when i click setup.exe to start the setup, GNOME wants me to associate with a program, and i have no clue what to do tongue.gif !!!) and so yeah, i guess my problem is just how to get my lan working again. and possibly help on associating the program thing so it runs setups. (Sorry i am such a noob, but ya gots to start somewhere, right???) any help is appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!

sircheesy:
The support CD is for windows not linux so you can not use the setup.exe program. It would be nice to know the brand name of the motherboard. Do you know how to open a console window? If so post the ouput of the console command

BTW you probably should start a new thread. Also the more info you provide the easier it will be for everyone else. What distribution did you install?
sircheesy
ok, i made a new thread, and no i don't know how to open the console sad.gif still very very very new at linux

recently i want to a gaming center for a lan and surprise! it worked hapily i went home and found myself trying and trying again all in all to find that at my home lan it didn't work i think this was due to the fact that the server there was running linux but back at my home.. still no net... im kinda confused more then ever...
SuKaFiSh
also i forgot to add that my computer is duel
SuKaFiSh
boot
michaelk
Please provide details on your home lan.
SuKaFiSh
ok i have 5 comps total 4 are windows and 1 is duel boot and 3 are direcly connected to the net but only 1 is having a shared connection all are running off CAT6 and i have a netgear 8-port hub
michaelk
A little confusing.
When you boot windows does the ethernet work?
What type of internet connection do you have?
How is this PC connected. ICS or direct?
SuKaFiSh
yes when i boot windows it works and i have dsl
michaelk
Ok were making some progress. So no router, just a hub connecting all of the computers and the DSL modem together. I assume the linux box is connected directly to the hub.

The reason it works at the gaming center and not at home is because DSL is different then a regular ethernet connection. It uses a different protocol and your linux PC is not configured to connect to a DSL modem.

Does your distro have a GUI wizard for setting up internet connections? Does it have a selection for DSL?
SuKaFiSh
sadly no at least i dont think so
michaelk
From what little information I could find try the command:
netconfig
SuKaFiSh
ok i'll try
SuKaFiSh
ok ive made some progress i got it to connect for about 20 min
but over all little progress
SuKaFiSh
so any ideas?
michaelk
