MDK 10 Network Problem


Hi all =]
My problem is that when I start the system, I see a warning icon in the systray saying "click here to configure network"... when I try to configure (which my comp is in a LAN with automatic IP) my network, it finishes with success. However, I am not connected to the internet! ifconfig eth0 says:

Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:00:395:23:E5
inet6 addr: fe80::200:39ff:fed5:23e5/64 Scope:Link
UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:26 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:5 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:2917 (2.8 Kb) TX bytes:378 (378.0 b)
Interrupt:11 Base address:0x8000

Where is the problem and how can I fix it?

Thanks a lot =]

How did you try to configure the Network ?

Try Application Button->System->Configuration->Configure Your Computer

Select the network button and then look for available connections.
Also make sure that the dapater is started at boot.

Problem Solved

I found that there were several threads about my topic so I found the solution... I have added 'yenta_socket' line to /etc/modprobe.preload... after that I followed the command "depmod -a" and now everything works fine... =] Thanks for help!

Neo th card itself is not. It's a mini PCI Card or doughter card attaching to a PCI bridge to which also CARDBUS (PCMCIA) is attaching.
So you need yenta_socket.

Can I ask a question? What does yenta_socket mean? Why adding the line solved the problem! Thanks =]

yenta_socket is teh CARDBUS driver. CARDBUS is the "extended" version of PCMICIA, allowing 32 Bits and Bus Speed of 33 MHz.
In your case I *think* the problem was that the network driver got loaded prior yenta. As already told a mini PCI card is
attached to CARDBUS as if it would be an external card. Loading yenta firts allows correctly to configure the CARDBUS,
so the network card HW is recognized. Then the appropriate network card driver is loaded.

So the solution to load yenta driver prior the network card driver.
