ANSUS M3A Gbit LAN - Internet not working


I have an AMD Phenom 9600 on ASUS M3A Motherboard AM2+, AMD 770, PCIe 2.0 with Gbit LAN and I can not connect to internet. I was trying to use network wizard but there is no ANSUS Gbit LAN on the list. I installed latest RH Linux WS and those are my first steps into Linux. Please help me to set up the connection. Should I look for a suitable driver?

You can look for a Linux native driver or you can probably use ndiswrapper with a Windows driver. I'm not sure if ndiswrapper supports your thing but it probably does.

Post the output of the lspci command to find out the real manufacturer of the ethernet chipset.

Thank you for the response.
From the ASUS site I found that I have

Atheros® PCIe Gigabit LAN controller featuring AI NET 2

whatewer it means. Command lspci typed in terminal window returns:
bash: lspci : command not found

but I am completely new to Linux and could be doing something wrong. Otherwise, system works fine.
Any help would be appreciated.

To get lspci to work you must become root (Administrator), like this:

su -

That us "su" for super user (root, administrator) followed by a space then a dash. The dash is so that it will reference root's home folder, and for some reason that seems to be needed with the lspci command.

After you enter su - it will ask for your root password, then the terminal will have root powers. Then the lspci command will work. But enter it as lspci -nn (that is a space then dash and two n's )

Please do this. I need it. I have the same mobo, and my lspci -nn output is all "unknown device." I need to know if I have a bad mobo, or if others get the same output.

So now remember, your not just doing this for you, you are doing it for me as well. And I am nervously awaiting the results.

It will be a long screenfull of stuff. You will see your ethernet adaptor identified in one of the long lines by manufacturer and by a two number pair, like [1022:9344] or some such.

And you will have six lines alike for your six SATA ports. Those are what I am interested in. Please respond as quickly as you can, for I must quickly make a decision on removing and RMAing this mobo, and I don't know yet whether to return it as defective and get another, or to buy an different board.

I hope this helps you as much as I hope it helps me.

Thanks.

Here attached please find response from good people from RH Support I've got. I am newbie and I did as was told and it works. I hope it will work for you too. lspci in my case returned name of the card: Attansic L1 Gigabit. Actually, this message is sent from that machine under question. Good Luck.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

. Hi,

Thank you for the updates, I have analyzed your sosreport and found that
RHEL5 does not have the driver for the (Attansic L1 Gigabit) Ethernet
Card. Please check the bugzilla for more information.

Bugzilla : https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=424431

[Kindly note that support for the hardware other than listed in the
redhat HCL (https://hardware.redhat.com) is out of scope of SLA and it
is not supported also. ]

I would request you to download and install the driver manually on your
machine.


=> Download the Driver from http://atl1.sourceforge.net/

=> Make sure you have the following packages installed on your machine
to run the compilation.
-> gcc
-> kernel-devel

To install these packages,
->Select Applications from the Main menu,
->Add or Remove Software.
->Search for the packages and install.

-------------------------------------------

1. Move the base driver tar file to the directory of your choice. For
example,
use /home/username/atl1 or /usr/local/src/atl1.

2. Untar/unzip archive:

tar zxf atl1-x.x.x.tar.gz

3. Change to the driver src directory:

cd atl1-x.x.x/src/

4. Compile the driver module:

make install

The binary will be installed as:

/lib/modules/<KERNEL VERSION>/kernel/drivers/net/atl1.[k]o

The install locations listed above are the default locations. They
might
not be correct for certain Linux distributions. For more
information,
see the ldistrib.txt file included in the driver tar.

5. Install the module:

insmod atl1

6. Verify whether the module has been loaded or not :

lsmod |grep atl1

[Note : Please go through the README file (you can find the README file
once you unzip the downloaded file) for more information)
-----------------------------------------------------------

Once the module has been loaded, configure the network:

-> Select System from the main menu
-> Applications
-> Network
-> Assign ip address/subnet mask if you are using static ip /
Select dhcp to get the configurations automatically.


Please feel free to get back to us if you have any further queries.

Cool

Thank you very much !

Your output lists USB ports. Mine does not. Knowint that the exact model mobo can find these ports means that my problem isn't an incompatible mobo, but a bad mobo. It now goes back for exchange, rather than refund and buy an different one.
