Hi,

I would try with a LiveCD yes, one that's not RPM based, like for example Linux Mint, Knoppix, one of the *buntu family (Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu).

Once booted in the live session you can use lspci to see if it's detected. If it is, then write down which NIC it is and we can take it from there.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello,

No irritation at all I spend a lot of time here on LQ, and when I'm trying to help someone I always learn some new stuff, so don't think you're irritating, not at all. You can either post here, click on my username and send me an email or send me a PM (private message).

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

If there is no output listing for the network then I suspect something else. If you don't find it listed in 'dmesg' or 'lspci -vv' outputs then there's a possible hardware problem.

I cannot speak for Eric but it would be better to resolve the problem here on the LQ forum so others may get aid from the information.

Hello,

I agree with onebuck that it's best to post here so that other may help out also and most important if a solution is found, that others may profit from it. Whatever OP decides, if he contacts me directly, rest assured that any results will be posted here (as I have done in the past when contacted through other channels).

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello,

Ok, now we know at least with what NIC we're dealing. Can you run the following as root in a terminal:
Code:
modprobe 8139too
If that gives no errors, then do:
Code:
lsmod
and see if 8139too is listed. Finally run:
Code:
lspci
and see if you're network card gets listed. Maybe it'll work, maybe not, but best to take it one step at a time, trial and error (or solution).

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello Manish87,

I'm glad to hear you got it fixed. It would have taken some time and trials before we'd advice you to change the card to another slot, so you saved quite some time there. Enjoy Linux.

If you consider your problem/question solved then please mark this thread as such using the Thread Tools.

Kind regards,

Eric
