Aspire D250 no Ethernet no wireless


Howdy folks...

I bought an Acer Aspire D250 netbook and installed Mandriva 2009.1.
When I did lspci -v no ethernet card is shown. the wireless is there but wants more packages installed. So I'm pretty much screwed.

Is there an easy fix for this?

Would it be possible to buy a USB to Ethernet adapter?

Does anyone know which ones will work with Linux? I was hoping if I went this way I could get a connect and maybe there are some updates to fix this problem.

I went to Office depot and got a linksys usb300m and it work in 10 seconds. So that saved me.
Looks like the wireless is up too but I don't have wireless at home. Ethernet is still dead after the updates.

thanks

Can you start a konsole (terminal) session and type: /usr/bin/lspci then post the output here.

Also open Configure Your Computer (mcc) and have a look under the Hardware--> Browse and Configure Hardware and see if there's anything noted there.

I checked under hardware too and there is nothing. I seen an old post from August I think that said someone was working on a fix. I figured by now it should have been done but I guess not. Its working now with this adapter, however it would be nice if it worked correctly.

It seems you need to install the Atheros drivers and possibly update the kernel. See here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...5/#post3713225

I went to the easyurpmi and installed something not sure what it was. I restarted the computer and unplugged the adapter i installed. When it booted up it now shows another Ethernet device in the network monitor screen.
I did lspci and here's what was added.

Ethernet controller: Attansic Technology Corp. Device 1062 (rev c0)
Subsystem: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Device 022f
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 18
Memory at 55000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256K]
I/O ports at 2000 [size=128]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: atl1c
Kernel modules: atl1c

I tried to set it up but it didn't want to cooperate, didn't connect. I'll fool around with it some more and dig through some of the posts and see if I can figure out what others did.
Thanks Nexus


Thanks Nexus!!!! I just plugged the cable back into the Ethernet port and it came up on its own. I didn't do anything else. Thanks.. now this netbook is completely functional. Woo whooo.


DOH! I just came back and turned on the computer and no network connection!!! I did lspci -v and nothing, I've been robbed!
Oh well I got my trusty doo dad that works. Maybe an update some day will fix it....thanks

Perhaps it's not loading the kernel module atl1c at startup. Once your system is up and if the ethernet port is still not working do: lsmod which will list all modules currently loaded. See if atl1c is in the list. This list can be long, it might be better to pipe the output to a file which you can then go through at your leisure.

Do: lsmod > modcheck, if you then look in your home folder you will see a file called modcheck waiting for your interrogation.

Or another thought, you could try going through a connection setup and make sure you check the option to start your connection at boot.

No alt1c in lsmod.
The network comes up at boot, but its just the usb/ethernet adapter.
The wireless looks ok, I can see signals in its window, but I don't use it in our house. But when I go back to work soon I might.
Its strange it worked once.

thanks

Try this: modprobe alt1c once done check lsmod again. If the module is listed check to see if the ethernet port is shown on the system.

eth0 is the USB adapter and eth1 is the wireless, lo not sure, that's always there.

[root@localhost dad]# modprobe alt1c

I have read some other stuff about this problem being a kernel / driver problem. I don't know much about kernels.

The lo is nothing to worry about.

What output do you get when you type this: iwlist eth1 scan

I also did the following to try and install a driver for it...

I downloaded this driver
AR81Family-linux-v1.0.0.10.tar.gz

cd src
make
root make install
root modprobe atl1e

still wouldn't work. I was told elsewhere that Mandriva may not support this device yet.

Your wireless is working, we just need to figure out why you can't connect to a wireless network. Are either of those ESSID's (2WIRE575 or NETGEAR) the name of your wireless router?
