unable to configure intel pro 100/ve ethernet card


Hi!

I am new to Linux. I have installed a few days ago Mandrake 9.1 on my hp pavillion 750n.

Linux recognized the ethernet card ( intel pro 100/ve) and installed the driver, but I don't have connection.

I had the same problem on Windows XP, but fixed it changing the speed configuration of the card to 10Mbps/full duplex.
I am unable to make those changes in Linux.

Somebody can help me?

Actually, if you had to force it to 10/full to get it to work in XP you will most likely need to set:
options eepro100 speed=10 duplex=full

But try speed=100 first.

Is it plugged into a 10Mbit switch by any chance?

Another thing you can do is use mii-tool to change the media settings (man mii-tool).

I made the changes:
I forced it to 10/ful,

and it stills doesn't work

I can ping my own card, but am unable to ping another machine or the router

Yes, the hub in our net works at 10mbps. I imagine it explains why the card is not working.

Wait, is it a HUB? If it's a HUB it will only work at 10/half. Hubs are shared media.

Switches have dedicated bandwidth and they're full-duplex devices.

Hub = half
Switch = full

Then set to whatever speed is appropriate.

Thanks for your help, chort

I will try with "half"

Maybe it is not a hub, as in windows XP I am running at 10/full without any problem

I didn't find a solution to the problem. Those informations will maybe help:

We are in a lan conected to a dsl connection.
No proxy server, we directly connect to the gateway: 10.0.0.1
Nobody works with DHCP.

I suffered with the same frustration on a Compaq Evo N600c

This is what fixed it for me:

At prompt type:

mii-tool -F 10baseT-HD


Hope it helps (report back if it does/doesn't)
