Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

You'll have to provide some more information so that we can be able to help you. What distro (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, CentOS, ...) did you install and on what hardware (laptop, make and model, desktop, make and model)?

Open a terminal and type the following command in it:
Code:
lspci
or
Code:
sudo lspci
if you're using one of the *buntu distros. Post the output of that command here.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

Try using;

Code:
lspci -vv |grep -i eth
08:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX (rev 02)
I also suggest that you read 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' would be one of the links you should look at to help us to help you in the future.

Hi,

What's the make and model of your computer? Do you know by any chance what network card you have? Can you run the following command and post the output here:
Code:
dmesg | grep "Ethernet\|Wireless"
Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

A question, are you logged in as root or as a normal user. If logged in as a normal user can you run both commands again but with sudo in front of them.
Code:
sudo lspci -vv |grep -i eth
sudo dmesg | grep eth
and post output, if any, please. If you run them with sudo and you're asked for a password, type in your user password.

Kind regards,

Eric

hi,

eric i tryed that command nearly 100 times still it is not geting executed and i am using pentium 4 desktop(not dual core) computer .

hey friend of mine suggested me that if the fedora/linux doesnt detect the drivers, then you can do anything, is it true?(because 99% of the time linux/fedora detects the drivers by itself)

Hello,

Pentium 4 is the CPU, not the make and model of the computer. Is it a 'home build' one or HP, IBM, Acer, Dell, ...

You could try with a LiveCD of for example Linux Mint or Knoppix, to see if they can detect your network card. Once you know the network card you can install the necessary driver for it. If a distro doesn't detect something then it doesn't mean that you're lost, you just need to find out what NIC you have installed. Then you can do the necessary action, without knowing what network card you have, it's impossible to tell which driver you need.

Do you have the possibility to try some LiveCD? You can just boot from it, no need to install it, just to find out if it detects your network card.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

Maybe Fedora 12 doesn't have the correct driver available and thus doesn't detect the NIC. Some distros include more drivers then others, I've had times when a NIC wasn't detected with one distro and worked perfectly with another one. At least it's worth a try.

Kind regards,

Eric
