current network config. - how to find out ?
I am compiling a new kernel (attempt #27), I finally got pretty much all working, all but my internet connection.
Current kernel 2.4.25-1-386
New kernel 2.6.5.qucho27
I have a cable-modem internet access, via my Ethernet card, with DHCP configuration.
Now, here is the question.
How can I find out the network protocols I have currently working ? so I know what to compile and what not in my kernel.
What commands should I use or there is a utility under KDE ?
ifconfig is the command...
ifconfig in addition to 'lspci' to find name of your ethernet adapter (so you can find the module you need). Enjoy.
Thank you for the answers but they would not produce any helpfull data :(
lspci would list it as:
0000:02:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corp. 82801BA/BAM/CA/CAM Ethernet Controller (rev 03)
My vendor listed my card as:
Intel Kinnereth 10/100 LAN with standard RJ-45 connector
WindowsXP see it as:
And my kernel would only recognice it as:
Anyway, I got it working after trial and error. I got a hint in some of the documentation in the kernel docs about 'Intel(R) PRO/100 ' not been the right one.
All this time I thought I had no network due to Protocols and not actually the right driver.
I am sure that new commands you told me will be very handy in the next problem I might encounter :p
