Atheros AR 8132 on my Acer Aspire one D250
 
My ethernet card (Atheros AR8132) on Acer Aspire One D250 cannot readed, please help me (i'm using slackware linux operating system)
i was trying to compile my kernel using kernel version 2.26.30.5, the eth0 was readed but if i plug the UTP cable in my ethernet card, my OS (slackware) going to be hang or everything's stop working. i was check the atheros device in kernel (especially the fast ethernet). i was trying the other OS like Ubuntu n Mint, but it same. Thanks for everything.

There can be long delays if dhcp goes waiting for an answer, but it will eventually time out (60 secs?)
You need to fill in sensible values in
/etc/rc.d/rc.wireless.conf - if you have a wireless system
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf - whatever system you have. A wireless card is eth[4]

Each has a man page. Also check for stupid things like ethernet switching in the bios. This means that if the eth0 connects, the wlan0 is disabled, and vice versa.

[SOLVED]i had exactly the same problem o my acer aspire one 250 using slackware 13! by default slack uses ATL1C driver version 1.0.0.10
eth0 was up looked fine buty did not work


if you type:
ethtool -i eth0 you will see that

driver: ALT1C
firmware = (empty)
Version = (empty)

show what i did! i found next version driver which was on test version but worked fine!!!

driver was l1c-linux-v1.0.0.11-test.tar.gz


1)first remove old driver using modprobe -r atl1c
2)download l1c-linux-v1.0.0.11-test.tar.gz driver from https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=355728
3)untar it with tar -zxvf l1c-linux-v1.0.0.11-test.tar.gz
4) enter src directory with cd src
5) compile driver with make install
6) enable it modprobe atl1c
7)enable eth0 ifconfig eth0 up

and it works fine

type ethtool -i eth0

driver: ATL1C
version 1.0.0.11-test
firmware-version: L1e
bus-info: 0000:03:00.0

i hope this will help you
