There is any Intel Pro/100 driver for Debian?


Continuing the net installation by Debian is very hard if it don't find any network card. I have a Intel Pro/100 card and it doesn't find it. I think I need a sorta.. Driver! But there is only ones for windows? Should I use ndiswrapper?

I thought that Intel Pro/100 was a pretty card and the drivers should be included in Debian NET install..

I have searched for a driver for your ethernet device and I have found this:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/e1000/
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...Id=60&lang=eng
So in my opinion the driver for linux exists, but I think, that it won't be easy to get it into the debian installator itself. I had a similar problem and I solved it by using additional PCI ethernet card for the installation, and compiled the driver when the system was installed.

Hmm. Strange. I have an Intel Pro 100 and it works fine with the e100 module that is in the standard kernel. Just to confirm, you are talking a wired device not wireless? And what is the output of lspci (I think you can get a console during the install by hitting Ctrl-Alt-F2)?

Cheers,

Yeah, I am talking about the wired thing.. It seems pretty hard to install the driver, but since you can fire up the console during installation it would not be impossible. And the lspci output (I write it down):
08:08.0 Ethernet Controller: Intel blabla... PRO/100 VE Network Connection (rev 01)

Hmm this looks different to mine:
Code:
05:03.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82557/8/9/0/1 Ethernet Pro 100 (rev 0d)
I hate how bloody hardware manufacturers name their products. It seems these two are different yet both called "pro 100".

According to the post by maslik you may want the e1000 for your card. There is a module with this name in the mainline (and Debian) kernel.
Sanity would imply that it's the same driver.
