3com NIC not connecting on Ubuntu
Ubuntu installed fine, I think, however I can't connect to the LAN, even though I'm using a common 3Com Ethernet card. What's more Windows and Suse Linux 9.1 which I tried previously worked fine on the same machine.
I think the problem might be that the network card (3Com 3c900) has 2 interfaces, a 10base2 coax BNC connector as well as a more usual 10baseT. I'm using the BNC connector.
Windows works fine, and I managed to get the Suse Linux drivers to work by altering a config file to force the card to use the BNC connector.
But I can't find out how to configure device drivers under Ubuntu (Debian based). Searched everywhere.
Doesn't help that feedback I've seen for others with driver problems says do things like Ismod. Well on my system if I do an Ismod, even logged in as root, just says 'command not found'. Is Debian / Ubuntu so different form other Linux distros.
Thanks in advance.
