Embeded 3COM LAN


Motherboard is ASUS A7N8X it has two on board LAN (3COM and NVIDIA), Slackware 9.0 do not see any of them.
I have disabled the NVIDA in BIOS (one is enough).
IN WINXP Iget the following info:
3COM 3C920B-EMB
I/O C000-C07F
IRQ 21

I need help to get this to work in Slacware 9.0
Any ideas ?
Uffe

Try :

"su -"
<root password>

and then :

"lspci" (with the letter L - from Linux) and not "Ispci" (with the letter I - from Interrupt).

Hi Urken, try the following commands :

"su -"
<your root password"
"modprobe 3c59x" (your network card might be in this module)

Then try to give an ip-adress to your network card, with a command like :

"ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.10 broadcast 192.168.1.255 netmask 255.255.255.0"

See the following URL for more info :
http://www.slackware.com/book/index....rce=x1100.html

Do you see your network card now, with the command "dmesg |grep -i eth"
Do you see your ethernet device, with the command "/sbin/ifconfig -a".

Note : let me guess... You've got a nVidia nForce2 chipset?
The ethernet card on that chipset might not be supported in the kernel in Slackware 9.0. More specifically, it don't think it is fully supported in any of the recent Linux distributions.

It seems that kernel 2.5.70 is the first one to support this card :
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...angeLog-2.5.70

I hope I'm wrong, but these are my initial findings.

Good luck.
