Well I'm certain thet you dont want the whole of the info for /sbin/lspci -v becouse its like a 10meter long

well I check at WIN the adreses for the LAN card and i have this

MEM RANGE e9001000-e9001fff
I/O E000-E007
IRQ = 21

also winXP uses NVIDIA Network Bus Enumerator
redirekting to the Network card driver

well here it is
in linux i found this to be similare

Bridge:nVidia Corporation: unknown device 008c (rev a3)
Subsystem: unknown device 17f2:3402
Flags: busmaster, 66MHz, fast devsel, letency0, IRQ5
Memory at e9001000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4k]
I/O ports at e000 [size=8]
Capabilities: [44] Power managment version 2

well there ar atleast 5 more unknown devices but ... well

now its /sbin/lsmod 's turn and i'll skip the size for them asuming it is not important

usb-ohci 0 (unused)
ehci-hcd 0 (unused)
usbcore 1 [usb-ohci ehci-hcd]
pcmcia-core 0
ide-scsi 0
agpgart 0 (unused)


well it is all I've got

hope it is helpfull and i look forward to hear from you

Thank you Peacedog

Actually the entire contents would be more useful. If you'd like to just post the nic part, it should look something like this.

Code:
01:0c.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905C-TX/TX-M [Tornado] (rev 78)
        Subsystem: Dell Computer Corporation: Unknown device 00b4
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 5
        I/O ports at ec00 [size=128]
        Memory at fdfdf800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128]
        Expansion ROM at fe000000 [disabled] [size=128K]
        Capabilities: <available only to root>
good luck.

the point is that there is no Ethernet Device statet

and when i try to compile a new Kernel well it did not deteckt the Net Device

there is my problem i thing thet the karnel can't even find the device or if you prefer to initialise it on start up

i suspect that this is becouse the Lan Card is embeded in the MB

well i never saw a nVidia chip set for a LAN card in the Kernel list

i'll realy apreciate it if you can point me a driver that will work properly with the nVidia LAN card

sorry for the problems i create

Try this, open up konsole and an editor. Issue the commands, copy the output. Paste the output to the editor, save the file.
good luck.

I don't see the nic, is it enabled in your bios? Is the cable plugged in?
good luck.

If you've got an onboard LAN port using the nForce2 chipset, then IIRC, the reason you might not be able to get Internet access may be due to the fact that you have not loaded the module it needs, and the module it needs is either "nvnet" or "forcedeth". As root
Code:
modprobe nvnet
then see if you have Internet access. If not, try the same with forcedeth. If that still doesn't work, you can google for more info using the term "nforce2 lan forcedeth"

As a side comment, I personally try to avoid onboard video, LAN, and audio, and to instead always go with separate cards. At least for me, it's easier. Good luck with it -- J.W.
