Try including some information such as: The distro of Linux you are using, the make/model of the Ethernet cards you're trying to use, the source of the drivers, and what you've tried already.

What you've provided so far is...... nothing.

There are three ways to get a linux nic working.

One is the distro already has support in the kernel.

Two is to add in support either by using the distro's software manager or downloading and installing.

Three is to use ndiswrapper to use windows drivers.


The safe bet is to tell us more. Why do you feel you need drivers?
