Debian is does not detect eth0 ?!


I recently installed Debian Etch 4.0 and I have yet to get my wired internet working, let alone wireless. Why isn't doesn't it detect my ethernet? The router light for the ethernet is on so I know it's not a hardware issue...I'm not 100% percent sure what type of card I have ,however I had no problem with it in Ubuntu. It's an Intel... I'll try to go check in a minute.

Posting info on the nic portion from the command ' /sbin/lspci -v ' should help.

The only nic I see is the wireless one. I see no other nic listed in the output. Is the wired nic something attached to the motherboard or seperate card?

For the wireless you can give b43 modules or the legacy bcm43 modules a try as well. I seem to have better connection speed using ndiswrapper though. Never had the any great support with any of the broadcomm modules.

That's odd because the wired connection worked out of the box for many other distro I tried. However, I rather get the wireless working. I'm really noob when it comes to setting up the wireless because when I used Ubuntu their was a program that did it automatically for me. Could you explain more how I'd go about setting up wireless?

Thanks.

How are you trying to connect, try iwconfig
Code:
iwconfig eth1 mode managed
iwconfig eth1 essid youressid
iwconfig eth1 key yourkey
dhclient eth1
If you get it to work set up;
/etc/network/interfaces
something like
Code:
iface eth1 inet dhcp
   wireless_mode managed
   wireless_rate 54M auto
   wireless_channel 6
   wireless_essid XXXXX
   wireless_key XXXXXXXXXX
(Replace the X's with your values) Then, "ifup eth1"

I actually managed to connect to my neighbor's internet. It's extremely slow (I've used it before) and it says it has 100% when it's about fast as dial-up. What could be the problem with connecting to my home router? My dad is connected fine and the computer wired to it is connected so I don't know what's going on.

I did get it to connect to my home network ,but there is no connection in swiftweasel and once again it says 100% signal when there's really no signal...

Your hardware may be too new for etch. Etch uses kernel 2.6.18. If everything worked on ubuntu, it uses kernel 2.6.21 or something why not just install that, what does it take 15-20 min. Also wireless will work better with your broadcom 4318 because it uses the new b43 kernel driver.

I have no clue how I would go about updating the kernel... Could you be more specific please?

Thanks.

edit: I hope you aren't talking about installing Ubuntu...
