Help!! Ethernet adapter not detected.
I am relatively new to linux. I recently upgraded from Mandrake 9.0 to 9.1. Prior to the upgrade my internet connection worked fine. Since upgrading, however, things have taken a turn for the worse.
At first, if I reconnected through Mandrake Control Center my connection would work for the session I was in though I would be forced to reconnect each time. Things have now gotten worse and I can no longer reconnect at all. When I try to reconnect in Control Center I now receive the following message: "No ethernet network adaptor has been detected on your system". As mentioned earlier, I was originally able to reconnect on this system. It is a dual boot with XP and the connection is still working on the XP side.
I should add that I am using a SMC EZ Connect USB/Ethernet converter for an ADSL conncection.
Any help possible would be really appreciated. I am new to linux and am very frustrated at this point in time.
